lyrics

love is an impetus, it brings you to a place that's dear
that you don't know
Love grows every day, still it's enough to sway the fear
of the unknown

people tell you what to think, what's on your mind
they're convinced that they know best, really i guess, they're just being kind
nothing betrays an empty stance more than a strong word
makes it hard to hear the little voices in your heart that must be heard

people have nothing to say, they keep saying it anyway.
i'd rather listen, i'd rather listen to the wind

beat the ephemeral with its own fist
'til it points to something you might have missed
try to take the long view now
step outside and travel through somehow

every waking minute is a minute that you've never had before,
it's like a little piece of chocolate with a cherry at the core
Love is an active force, you're swimming in stream that changes course
it's never what you think, no-one can tell you any more

people have nothing to say, they keep saying it anyway.
i'd rather listen, i'd rather listen to the wind blow the clouds around
people have nothing to say, they keep saying it anyway.
i'd rather listen, i'd rather listen to the wind blow the clouds away

you don't know your heart, it's right inside of
you can't see your life, it's right behind
you don't know your way, it's right in front of
you can't see your fear, it's right beside
you could feel your love, it's all around
you

maybe I've got nothing to say, I'm gonna say it anyway
