Thousands

Thousands of words have flowed from my lips and your lips
Thousands of grains of sand between my toes
Thousands of days i’ve waited for the sun’s eclipse
Thousands of hours i’ve waited for you, heaven knows

Thousands of breaths i have inhaled and have exhaled
Thousands of smiles i have smiled today
Thousands of times i know it is you i have failed
Thousands of thoughts that never have a say

Thousands of salted tears have run across my face
Thousands of lovers will make up and break up
Thousands of runners will not complete the race
Thousands of drinks i take from the same empty cup

Thousands of children will not heed the warning
Thousands of men have smiled and told me their lies
Thousands of widows will carry on with their mourning
Thousands of people question why yet nobody replies

Thousands of raindrops will dance upon my head
Thousands of dreams haunt me when i wake
Thousands of desires will be left unsaid
Thousands of fires in my soul are burning without mistake

Thousands of sounds remind me of your sweet voice
Thousands of kisses will never be given to me
Thousands of memories of you leaving, your choice
Thousands of expressions of love lost into the sea

Thousands of thousands of thousands of thousands
But only one way to say i love you.
Thousands of thousands of thousands of thousands
But only three words to say i love you.
