So Many Words

This song is by Pierce Pettis and appears on the album Tinseltown (1991).

I want to write this song inside me,
I want to right this wrong inside me,
I want to say what I dare not say in so many words,
In so many words.

As a child of three I remember,
Just beyond my reach,
I remember knowing more than I could say in so many words,
In so many words,

We get loaded and we shoot off our mouths this way,
Never see where our remarks are aimed,
People talk loud when they got nothing to say,
Then the talk gets more serious, our voices fade,
We whisper secrets and the whispers fall,
The most important things we never say at all, oh.

Ooh, when did the talk get so cheap?
I wonder,
So ugly, so obscene,
I wonder,
When did we lose our innocence in so many words?
In so many words.

I really wish I could say I love you, but something gets in the way,
I love you,
I feel like I am drowning in so many words,
In so many words,
In so many words.
