/ Lucinda Williams Lyrics /decrease font size increase font size
• Words • | by Lucinda Williams
I would rather suffer in sweet silent solitude
Deathly defiant from drowning out
Filthy sounds stumbling ugly and crude
Between the lips of your beautiful mouth

Deep down within me words move in phrases
Frozen and still Ďtil they decide
To melt and drip over the pages
Until that moment they live inside

My words enjoy the feel of the paper
Better than mingling with your consonants
Once they get going they never waver
And they slip in between your if, ands, and buts


When my words are hiding between the lines
Then Iím afraid they wonít hear me call
What if they fail me without a sign
What if they hardly surface at all

Screaming and throwing your weight around
My words choose knowledge over politics
You canít kill my words they know no bounds
My words are strong and they donít make me sick

They still remain my only companion
Loyal and true to the very end
Theyíll never ever completely abandon
Ever give up the paper and the pen
