Lyrics:

If words were strings I would
Sing some together
I would
Tie them with rhymes
Then I'd throw you a line
You would
Hang on my words as I
Pulled us together
And wherever you were
You would always find

A way
Back to me
If you just
Held the string

You would smile at the things
I had said
At the strings I had thread
You'd be amazed at just how strong they were
They could hold the weight of the world
Like a pendulum from the moon
All from what I'd said
About how much I love you

Well the next thing I'd do
I would knit you a sweater
That would keep out the cold by the warmth of my words
It'd be stitched up with love
And light as a feather
It would hold you tight
Wherever you were

If you unraveled
It all
You'd be amazed
At what you saw

You would smile at the things
I had said
At the strings I had thread
You'd be amazed at just how strong they were
They could hold the weight of the world
Like a pendulum from the moon
All from what I'd said
About how much I love you

As I spoke from my heart
I would string up a harp
That would play the most beautiful
Music you've heard
And a chorus of cellos
Would then chime in
With the violins I had
Strung with my words

We would sing right along
We would shout out together
Getting all tangled up in the
Words of our song
I would
Lasso your heart
And to it be tethered
So that forever more
We'd be tied in our love

We would laugh
As we found
Little strings
All around

You would smile at the things
I had said
At the strings I had thread
You'd be amazed at just how strong they were
They could hold the weight of the world
Like a pendulum from the moon
All from what I'd said
About how much I love you
