Extreme - More Than Words (Official Video)




"More Than Words" is a song by rock band Extreme. It is the fifth track and third single from their 1990 album Pornograffitti. It is a ballad built around acoustic guitar work by Nuno Bettencourt and the vocals of Gary Cherone (with harmony vocals from Bettencourt). The song is a detour from the funk metal style that permeates the band's records. As such, it has often been described as "a blessing and a curse" due to its overwhelming success and recognition worldwide, but the band ultimately embraced it and plays it at every show.


The song is a ballad in which the singer wants his lover to do more to prove her love other than saying the phrase "I love you." Bettencourt described it as a warning that the phrase was becoming meaningless: "People use it so easily and so lightly that they think you can say that and fix everything, or you can say that and everything's OK. Sometimes you have to do more and you have to show it—there's other ways to say 'I love you.'"




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
