Extreme - More Than Words



“More Than Words” was written by Extreme vocalist Gary Cherone and legendary guitarist Nuno Bettencourt about a man’s need to hear more than just the words “I love you,” but to see that love in action. Bettencourt told Joe Bosso of the Music Aficionado website about how the song came to life, and how it proved the naysayers wrong when it climbed to the number one spot on the charts.


Bettencourt explains, "It's such a basic song." “It doesn't follow the traditional verse-chorus-bridge structure. It doesn't have the moment when you say, "OK, everybody get ready for the huge hook," like in most ballads. It's a bit of a ramble. But, in my opinion, that is the song's charm. It moves ahead in a really natural manner.”



Lyrics


Saying "I love you"

Is not the words

I want to hear from you

It's not that I want you

Not to say

But if you only knew


How easy

It would be to

Show me how you feel

More than words

Is all you have to do

To make it real

Then you wouldn't

Have to say

That you love me

Cause I'd already know


What would you do?

If my heart

Was torn in two

More than words

To show you feel

That your love

For me is real

What would you say

If I took

Those words away

Then you couldn't

Make things new,

Just by saying

"I love you"

More than words,

More than words


Now that I've tried to

Talk to you

And make you understand

All you have to do

Is close your eyes

And just reach out your hands


And touch me

Hold me close

Don't ever let me go

More than words

Is all I ever

Needed you to show

Then you wouldn't

Have to say

That you love me

Cause I'd already know


What would you do if my heart was torn in two

More than words to show you feel

That your love for me is real

What would you say if I took those words away

Then you couldn't make things new

Just by saying I love you


La di da, da di da, di dai dai da

More than words


La di da, da di da, di dai dai da

More than words


La di dai, dai dai, di dai dai da

La la di da da da


La di dai dai da

La la da da

More than words


Oooh uuuuh uuuh

Uuh


More than words
