Lyrics
Sometimes (I write a Song) (words and music by Alan Gillis)


Words alone are not enough
Sometimes they can't explain
A love that grows with every thought of you

And you are always on my mind

Sometimes words roll off the tongue
So easily - can they reveal
The feelings that come over me
Every time your eyes meet mine

Bridge
When you've heard it said a hundred thousand times or more
You may be listening too fast
The meaning going past and
So I sing my love in every song I ever wrote
You're the word that rhymes - you're every note

Chorus
I write a song to find a way
To give my words their meaning
A song can make it all so clear
Sometimes a song's the only way
To help you to believe in me and so to you
I write a song
Sometimes I write a song

Bridge 2
When you've heard me tell you so a million times or more
The phrase may seem the same
When I'm whispering your name but
If I give my words a melody and verse that rhymes
Will you feel the love in every line?

Chorus
I write a song to find a way
To give my words their meaning
A song can make it all so clear
Sometimes a song's the only way
To help you to believe in me and so to you
I write a song
Sometimes I write a song
