Yeah, maybe words don't say much Maybe we don't need words to communicate our love Maybe All I wanted a perfect life Some perfect kids and a perfect wife Some perfect days and some perfect nights Even though I'm flawed, I should be alright A child with special needs didn't fit in my plans I'm a needy man, wanting more that what you put in his hands All I wanted was a perfect family core Now I'm envying the family next door Trying not to trust therapy more than God I am walking the street where fear and love collide I am learning in weakness, you still gotta serve And my connection with my boys is way deeper than words But damn, words, I thrive with 'em Words are my life, my career, I survive with 'em I'm given a life sentence that words can't fix Now we both live in a world that don't make sense Yeah maybe words don't say much Maybe we don't need words to communicate our love My sons are not a punishment or an accident Just a little abstract masterpiece of what the master did I try not to doubt the power of prayer But sometimes, I just feel like the power ain't there Some days I'm feeling good, some days I'm feeling torn I'm getting praise for activities a father should perform I get applause when I excel, thank you Is there grace for me when I fail and I'm feeling shameful Yeah, well maybe words don't say much Maybe we don't need words to communicate our love My father said he needed greater trust in the Lord And the Lord used cancer so he could trust in Him more He died without complaining, that's when I understood He taught me more in his silence, that a sermon ever could Words can be lies to help us disguise our phoniness Feeling insecure, in the midst of pride and loneliness I learned the meaning of contentment really fast Wanting change, while appreciating everything that you have Yeah maybe words don't say much Maybe we don't need words to communicate our love Maybe words don't say much Maybe I should just learn to shut up Only you know Only you know Oh oh oh Only you know Only you know Oh oh oh Truth is your presence speaks much louder than when a choir sings I never knew I'll find joy up in the smallest things The counsellor said "Live long, love strong, stick together" This is a thorny rose you two will carry forever Find value in your interactions, and not in your treasure Find strength in Jesus, increase your faith in good measure Avoid evil, your kids need a home that is peaceful Don't be a passive man, understand that your family needs you Pray for healing, hoping they find a cause But after all, I resolved, you are not a problem to solve Maybe I wouldn't change you Maybe I'm just unable to see your potential Because I'm blinded by the labels Yeah maybe words don't say much Maybe we don't need words to communicate our love Maybe words don't say much In that moment, we had a breakthrough Silence, I want to thank you In that moment, we had a breakthrough Silence, I want to thank you
