Couldn’t Have Said It Better (radio version)

Boy: You have the right to remain silent
I’ll get the lights … you get that smile

And you say nothing at all
Well—I couldn’t have said it better myself
Tonight the conversation takes the fall
Just love me like you love nobody else

I see the angels, they’re standing right outside your door
Girl:They’re watching over me, they’re watching over us all
You can send them home tonight ‘cause you won’t need them anymore
Girl:In your arms I think I’ve found the safest place to fall

When I step in the door and I stare at your face
There are so many things that I wish I could say
Well, I struggle with words but they put up a fight
You can keep your mouth shut, because it doesn’t really matter tonight

I will guide you all the way
Because I know exactly what you’re trying to say

Girl: You have the right to remain silent
I’ll get the light … you get that smile

And you say nothing at all
Well—I couldn’t have said it better myself
Tonight the conversation takes the fall
Just love me like you love nobody else

And I know you feel the same
You’ve been searching for the words
Now you know what to say, oh yeah…

Just say nothing
(don’t say a word)
(silence is gold)
(don’t say a word)
Shhh....

Oh—this is the moment we’ve been waiting for, oh yeah
Girl:If I exercise my right
I will take your body language and hold it against it you tonight, oh yeah

And I know you feel the same
I’ve wondered all my life
If this moment comes, would I know what to say?

Then you say nothing at all
Girl:So many times I stumbled on the words that I wanted to say
Yeah, you say nothing at all
Girl:So many thoughts, that I should have just let my heart explain
Yeah, you say nothing at all
Girl:So many ways we could turn the words around
You said nothing at all
Girl:So many nights our hearts came crashing to the ground
You say nothing at all
Girl:So many dreams that are finally coming true
Well, I couldn’t have said it better myself
Girl:Now you finish me off when you finish my thoughts the way you do!

Oh, you say nothing at all
(well, I couldn’t have said it better myself)
Girl:I love you…
Tonight the conversation takes the fall
(just love me, just love me, just love me like you love nobody else)
Just love me like you love nobody else

You say nothing at all
Well, I couldn’t have said it better myself
Tonight the conversation takes the fall
Just love me like you love nobody else

Hey, you say nothing at all
Well I couldn’t have said it better myself....

Unsaid

I should have told you how good it felt to hold you
But I, I just never took the time to express it to you
I assumed you knew
Should have said: I love you baby
Instead
Instead it went

Instead it went unsaid
All the things I should have told you
It went undone
All the things I should have done
Should have told you how much I care

But it went unshared
All the love I should have shown you
It went unheard
All the words I kept inside
It was there on my mind but it went… unsaid

I had the chance to tell you how glad I was to have you
But I, I just blew that chance away, locked those feelings inside
Now I cant sleep at night
Should have said: I love you baby
Instead
Instead it went

Instead it went unsaid
All the things I should have told you
It went undone
All the things I should have done
Should have told you how much I care

But it went unshared
All the love I should have shown you
It went unheard
All the words I kept inside
It was there on my mind but it went… unsaid

I thought you knew (I thought you knew)
That you were my reason
My reason for breathing
If I could just see you again

I’d say what went unsaid
All the things I should have told you
It went undone
All the things I should have done
Should have told you how much I care

But it went unshared
All the love I should have shown you
It went unheard
All the words I kept inside
It was there on my mind
But it went… unsaid
But it went… (unsaid)
But it went… (unsaid)....
