The words I want to say to you 
Are here, inside.
They’re aching to be understood.
I don’t know how else to explain them
But to hold you tight in my arms.

If my heart is close to yours
We can let them talk for us.
So, will you just come closer
Wrap your arms around me
And let my body speak to yours.
