About More Than Words

"More Than Words" is a song by rock band Extreme. It is the fifth track and third single from their 1990 album Pornograffitti. It is a ballad built around acoustic guitar work by Nuno Bettencourt and the vocals of Gary Cherone (with harmony vocals from Bettencourt). The song is a detour from the funk metal style that permeates the band's records. As such, it has often been described as "a blessing and a curse" due to its overwhelming success and recognition worldwide, but the band ultimately embraced it and plays it at every show.

Saying I love you 
Is not the words I want to hear from you 
It's not that I want you 
Not to say it, but if you only knew 
How easy it would be to show me how you feel 
More than words is all you have to do to make it real 
Then you wouldn't have to say that you love me 
'Cause I'd already know 

What would you do if my heart was torn in two?
More than words to show you feel 
That your love for me is real 
What would you say if I took those words away? 
Then you couldn't make things new 
Just by saying I love you 

La-di-da-la-di-da-dai-dai-dai
More than words 
La-di-da-da-di-da

Now that I've tried to talk to you and make you understand 
All you have to do is close your eyes 
And just reach out your hands and touch me 
Hold me close, don't ever let me go 
More than words is all I ever needed you to show 
Then you wouldn't have to say that you love me 
'Cause I'd already know 

What would you do if my heart was torn in two?
More than words to show you feel 
That your love for me is real 
What would you say if I took those words away? 
Then you couldn't make things new 
Just by saying I love you

La-di-da-la-di-da-dai-dai-dai
More than words
La-di-da-da-di-da-dai-dai-dai
More than words
La-di-da-la-di-da-dai-dai-dai
More than words
La-di-da-la-di-da
La-da-da-da-da-da
More than words
More than words
