Lyrics
I know that you're hiding things
Using gentle words to shelter me
Your words were like a dream
But dreams could never fool me
Not that easily

I acted so distant then
Didn't say goodbye before you left
But I was listening
You'll fight your battles far from me
Far too easily

"Save your tears 'cause I'll come back"
I could hear that you whispered as you walked through that door
But still I swore to hide the pain when I turn back the pages
Shouting might have been the answer
What if I'd cried my eyes out and begged you not to depart?
But now I'm not afraid to say what's in my heart

Though a thousand words
Have never been spoken
They'll fly to you
Crossing over the time and distance holding you
Suspended on silver wings

And a thousand words
One thousand confessions
Will cradle you
Making all of the pain you feel seem far away
They'll hold you forever

The dream isn't over yet
Though I often say I can forget
I still relive that day
You've been there with me all the way
I still hear you say

"Wait for me, I’ll write you letters"
I could see how you stammered with your eyes to the floor
But still I swore to hide the doubt when I turn back the pages
Anger might have been the answer
What if I'd hung my head and said that I couldn't wait?
But now I'm strong enough to know it's not too late

'Cause a thousand words
Call out through the ages
They'll fly to you
Even though I can't see, I know they're reaching you
Suspended on silver wings

Oh, a thousand words
One thousand embraces
Will cradle you
Making all of your weary days seem far away
They'll hold you forever

Oh, a thousand words
Have never been spoken
They'll fly to you
They'll carry you home and back into my arms
Suspended on silver wings

And a thousand words
Call out through the ages
They'll cradle you
Turning all of the lonely years to only days
They'll hold you forever
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
A Thousand Words

Great performance and production
Jade, you haven't given much information about the band or equipment you used to record this, but it sure does sound pro on both counts. Amazing voice you have there.

I Get the Picture...
or at least the 1,000 words that it's worth.

Lucky you... to get to go into a studio and just concentrate on performance and not all the knob-twiddling and hand-wringing most of us go through.

Nicely written and sung. ;)

excellent Jade
I will aim my remarks toward your songwriting... being that this is the area that you had the most influence on this post... you tell the story very well... a true union of melody and lyric to draw out the emotion... wrapping up a common shared experience, in a way that really accents the high drama of those moments...

I'm impressed that at a young age, you have this intuitive grasp of songwriting... and I will keep an ear cocked your way for more...

It also doesn't hurt that you can really sing.. very well

I really don't like this kind of music ...
but there's no denying the talent coming through. Your voice has that rare intimate quality that lesser singers would kill for. Excellent work. A solid 8 on the Roca Scale (pro quality).

First song?! Damn!
davisamerica said 3913 days ago (March 31st, 2008)
wow
right then ... so any body ever commented on your voice? ... lol .. do believe your voice is professional as i have heard in awhile .... classic pop!
the song itself is strong musically and lyrically. and very passionate performance ices the cake ... wow .... just great!
