about

Words and music by Mike Surber

lyrics

She's got a way with words, a heart-stopping verbal curse
When her volume's up I want to turn the lights down
She's got a way with words - when she talks in prose I dream in verse
The trouble is, she don't know how she sounds

Wade across the ocean like a kiddy pool, I've got the inside track on the local fools
If you'd like an introduction I could show you around this town
But the clock's ticking like a dirty bomb, you're gonna have to get moving, gonna have to put your shows on
I tried to stop it, but that's where we went wrong

There's more to the music than lyrics and strings
There's more to a wedding than dresses and rings
There's more to a bird than a couple of wings
There's more to you and there's more to me

There's more to I'm sorry than getting on your knees
There's more to a forrest than climbing some trees
There's more to a lover than good company
There's more to you and there's more to me

She's got a way with words, her lips are the doctor and her tongue is the nurse
They'll fix you up and send you on your way
She's got a way with words - It don't get better but it don't get worse
And I have never been one to complain
