Track Name: Words Of Love
words of love (but to tell the truth - it won't be the truth) it takes a hopeless heart to think - love's a happy hunting ground, think it makes your world spin on - iam giddy, don't be glum, got me a hole that fits right in my pocket feeling like you're kissing for the first time sighing, crying, and shaking - fascinating devastating and then you hear those whispered words of love (b.-voc.) those words of love say a promise is a promise but to tell the truth - it won't be the truth read them on the backprint of a locket or did you read them from their kissing lips smooth, clean, and faking- fascinating devastating you hear the echos of those words of love (b.-voc.) those words of love say a promise is a promise but to tell the truth - it won't be the truth i will not be a part of this romance i will not be a part of this romance words of love - in your your ear so sincere it's harmony but to tell the truth - it won't be the truth there's still time (3x) to prove ´em wrong (2x)
