WORDS UNSPOKEN

(WORDS AND MUSIC BY ANDREA ELLIOTT)

(VERSE 1)

WE MET IN THE SUMMER IT WAS LATE JULY
WE PARTED EARLY IN FALL
YOUR UNIT WAS LEAVING SO WE SAID GOODBYE
YOU HAD TO ANSWER THE CALL
AND NOW EVERY DAY

(CHORUS)

WORDS UNSPOKEN STILL PLAY IN MY HEAD
PHOTOS NOT TAKEN LETTERS UNREAD
STANDING HERE SO LOST AND ALONE
YOU GAVE YOUR ALL AND YOU'RE NOT COMING HOME
I TOOK THINGS FOR GRANTED NOW I HAVE REGRETS
AND IT SQUEEZES MY HEART LIKE A TOURNIQUET
I CAN'T GO BACK NOW THE BRIDGES ARE BURNED
WORDS UNSPOKEN LESSONS LEARNED

(VERSE 2)

I ANSWER THE DOOR TWO TIN SOLDIERS STAND THERE
GAZING AT ME WITH THEIR COLD HAUNTING STARE
THEY HAND ME A FLAG AND A MEDAL OR TWO
NOW IT'S ALL THAT I HAVE BUT I'D RATHER HAVE YOU
AND NOW EVERY DAY


(CHORUS)

WORDS UNSPOKEN STILL PLAY IN MY HEAD
PHOTOS NOT TAKEN LETTERS UNREAD
STANDING HERE SO LOST AND ALONE
YOU GAVE YOUR ALL AND YOU'RE NOT COMING HOME
I TOOK THINGS FOR GRANTED NOW I HAVE REGRETS
AND IT SQUEEZES MY HEART LIKE A TOURNIQUET
I CAN'T GO BACK NOW THE BRIDGES ARE BURNED
WORDS UNSPOKEN LESSONS LEARNED

(BRIDGE)

I NEVER TOLD YOU I LOVE YOU ENOUGH THAT YOU WERE MY EVERYTHING
TIME MARCHES ON TIL IT LEAVES US BEHIND WE DON'T KNOW WHAT TOMORROW WILL BRING
AND NOW EVERY DAY
EVERY DAY

( CHORUS 2X)

WORDS UNSPOKEN STILL PLAY IN MY HEAD
PHOTOS NOT TAKEN LETTERS NOT READ
STANDING HERE SO LOST AND ALONE
YOU GAVE YOUR ALL AND YOU'RE NOT COMING HOME
I TOOK THINGS FOR GRANTED NOW I HAVE REGRETS
AND IT SQUEEZES MY HEART LIKE A TOURNIQUET
I CAN'T GO BACK NOW THE BRIDGES ARE BURNED
WORDS UNSPOKEN LESSONS LEARNED

WORDS UNSPOKEN STILL PLAY IN MY HEAD
PHOTOS NOT TAKEN LETTERS UNREAD
STANDING HERE SO LOST AND ALONE
YOU GAVE YOUR ALL AND YOU'RE NOT COMING HOME
I TOOK THINGS FOR GRANTED NOW I HAVE REGRETS
AND IT SQUEEZES MY HEART LIKE A TOURNIQUET
I CAN'T GO BACK NOW THE BRIDGES ARE BURNED
WORDS UNSPOKEN WORDS UNSPOKEN
WORDS UNSPOKEN.......
