Words Don’t Mean A Thing

Words Don’t Mean A Thing
Words & Music - Pat James

Seven years of wondering what life’s about
Standing here just screaming let me out
Face to face with ineffectuality
I was there for you but you were never there for me

In my heart you were to be the only one
My rising star and my setting sun
Comfortable but never satisfied
You say the words but all I hear is lies

How much will it take you to see what’s at stake here my love
You sing a song to me but all the words keep telling me I’m wrong
Sometimes the words don’t mean a thing

I have given all that you have asked of me
Never questioned your integrity
I played the fool and I know it’s true
Now I see the only fool is you

How much will it take you to see what’s at stake here my love?
You sing a song to me but all the words keep telling me I’m wrong
Sometimes the words don’t mean a thing

Everybody’s always talking’ bout
Where you from
How you been
Where you are going
Searching for some piece of mind
Take your time
Tell me now how will you ever know?

How much will it take you to see what’s at stake here my love?
You sing a song to me but all the words keep telling me I’m wrong
Sometimes the words don’t mean a thing
