More Than Words

Words & Music:

Nuno Bettencourt & Gary Cherone (Extreme)


G  Cadd9  Am7  C  D  G


G          C(add9)      Am7             C       D         G

Saying, "I love you" is not the words I want to hear from you.

G               C(add9)   Am7             C      D    Em

It's not that I want you; not to say, but if you only knew.

Bm7 Am7  D              G       D/F#    Em

How easy it would be to show me how you feel.

Bm7       Am7      D7              G7    G7      C

More than words is all you have to do to make it real.

C        Cm               G            Em7             Am7    D7   G

Then you wouldn't have to say that you love me, 'cause I'd already know.



G             D/F#      Em        Bm      C

What would you do if my heart was torn in two?

C                  G/B      Am7            D7             G

More than words to show you feel that your love for me is real.

G               D/F#    Em7        Bm7    C

What would you say if I took those words away?

C                     G/B     Am7         D7              G

Then you couldn't make things new just by saying, "I love you."


Now, that I've tried to talk to you and make you understand.

All that you have to do is close your eyes & 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.
