  COULDN'T HAVE SAID IT BETTER

And you said 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

Little lady, I think there's something on your mind
I've known you long enough to know the words are not that hard to find

And the harder you try and the longer you go
Well, there's nothing but love in those eyes any more
You know what to say but you never know how
You can keep your mouth shut
Because it doesn't really matter right now

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

You have the right to remain silent
I'll get the lights… you get that smile

And you said 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 said 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 said nothing at all
(well, I couldn't have said it better myself)
Girl: I love you…
(tonight the conversation takes the fall)
Girl: Like nobody else…
(just love me like you love nobody else)
Well, I couldn't have said it
No, I couldn't have said it—oh—better myself

(you said 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

You said 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 said nothing at all
Well I couldn't have said it better myself.
