Fill in the Words        


You play a C, you get a C
That's simple, that's easy
And there was you, and there was me
Not so simple, not easy

I'm never quite able to say what I feel
I know that sounds absurd
The only way you can hear me
Is to listen to my song without words

That's what I'm feeling right now
And I'm writing this love song
Just for you to
Fill in the words

You were everything good
I know you love me
I just couldn't make "us" work out
And all I could do was leave it to you
To fill in the words

If I had the words I'll have a song
And maybe it could tell me where I belong
With you I have the words for free
It's just in loving you I was losing me

I'm hoping you'll understand
That until I could find those words for myself
Will you fill in the words?

If I had the words I'll have a song
And maybe it could tell me where I belong
With you and me I wasn't sure
Was I less, were you more?

I'm hoping you'll give me some time
If that kid on the coat rack wants to come back
Wants one more try
Where will you be?
Will you still fill in the words?
Will you fill in the words?

from the musical, "They're Playing Our Song"
