The piece out of the archives I referred to in my last post.


IF WORDS COULD ONLY SPEAK

c2000 Brian Beecher


All that we hold should be
Easier than usual
And things have never been
Better than with you

Communication is essential
To every sphere of life
And when we relax this evening
Well know if we think alike

We have a lot to discuss
And decisions we must make
There is a chance of us
Being able to give and take

There is a chance of making progress
Since you have the will to put
More energy into the process
So as to make the most of it

To criticism that has a ring of truth
You may feel compelled o go to deep ends
In order to defend yourself

It may be more honest to own up
To our failing
And begin to put them right
To get the odds and ends sorted out
And then go somewhere special tonight

So what would it be like
If words could only speak
Would love give us the spark
To pursue those whom we seek

And would peace say to bring closure
To the sorrows of the past
And would caution tell us to go slowly
To make sure the love will last

To criticism that has a ring of truth
You may feel compelled
To go to deep ends
In order to defend yourself

It may be more honest to own up
To our failings
And begin to put them right
To get the odds and ends sorted out
And then go somewhere special tonight
