Louder Than Words lyrics

Louder Than Words

JONATHAN
Why do we play with fire?
Why do we run our finger through the flame?
Why do we leave our hand on the stove,
Although we know, we're in for some pain?

Oh, why do we refuse to hang a light,
When the streets are dangerous?
Why does it take an accident,
Before the truth gets through to us?

Cages or wings,
Which do you prefer?
Ask the birds

Fear or love, baby
Don't say the answer
Actions speak louder than words

Why should we try to be our best
When we can just get by and still gain?
Why do we nod our heads

MICHAEL and JONATHAN
Although we know

MICHAEL
The boss is wrong as rain?

JONATHAN
Why should we blaze a trail
When the well worn path Seems safe and

JONATHAN and SUSAN
So inviting?

SUSAN
How, as we travel, can we

JONATHAN and SUSAN
See the dismay
And keep from fighting?

JONATHAN MICHAEL AND SUSAN
Cages or wings, Cages or wings,
Which do you prefer?
Ask the birds Ah:

ALL
Fear or love, baby
Don't say the answer

JONATHAN MICHAEL AND SUSAN

Actions speak louder than Louder than, louder than:
Words

What does it take
To wake up a generation?

ALL
How can you make someone
Take off and fly?

JONATHAN
If we don't wake up
And shake up the nation
We'll eat the dust
Of the world wondering why

SUSAN
Why do we stay with lovers

SUSAN and JONATHAN
Who we know, down deep

SUSAN
Just aren't right?

JONATHAN
Why would we rather

ALL
Put ourselves through hell
Than sleep alone at night?

JONATHAN
Why do we follow leaders who never lead?

MICHAEL
Why does it take catastrophe to start a revolution

MICHAEL and SUSAN
If we're so free?
Tell me why

JONATHAN
Someone tell me why
So many people bleed

JONATHAN MICHAEL AND SUSAN
Cages or wings, Cages or wings,
Which do you prefer?
Ask the birds Ah:

ALL
Fear or love, baby
Don't say the answer

JONATHAN MICHAEL AND SUSAN
Actions speak louder than Louder than, Louder than,
Louder than, Louder than

ALL
Cages or wings,
Which do you prefer?

JONATHAN MICHAEL AND SUSAN
Ask the birds Ah:

ALL
Fear or love, baby
Don't say the answer

JONATHAN MICHAEL AND SUSAN
Actions speak louder Louder than, Louder than
They speak louder Louder than, Louder than
Actions speak louder than words!
