Lyrics

You Taught Me The Word

Written By: Tom Clement

Verse 1:

I wish we knew what to say
Without letting every day
Slip away
Cos these are precious times together
I wish you’d say how you felt
We should be free to be ourselves
Life is about sharing
It’s unfair if we live like strangers

I regret we’re not as close
As my soul wants us to be
Maybe a part is down to you
But most is down to me
I’m scared to hold on to something
That I know I could well loose
But I might never really love
If I don’t tell you the truth

Chorus:

You taught me the word

Love

You showed me the word

Love

I might never have known

Love

If it wasn’t for you

Verse 2:

We are only human
And don’t always know the best route to take
But the pains of yesterday
Are not as inviting as your embrace today
I know that fate could not be seen
But you’ve always wanted the best for me

I know it’s not been easy
The greatest journeys never are
But it would amount to nothing
If I don’t say what’s in my heart

You taught me the word

Love

You showed me the word

Love

I might never have known

Love

If it wasn’t for you

Bridge:

This Journey into the unknown
Has helped both of us grow
But we both want something better
And I hope we find it together
We’ve stood side by side
While others have gone their separate ways
Because somewhere inside of us
We’ve always kept the faith

You taught me the word

Love

You showed me the word

Love

I might never have known

Love

If it wasn’t for you
