Words, Words, Words.

 

Words, words, words, oh my, what do I hear!

Words, words, words, are they from you my dear?

Words, words, words, oh my, what do I feel!

Words, words, words, my heart did steal?

Words, words, words,  oh my, what do I see!

Words, words, words, have you become me?

-Mae Archila
