A word is dead
When it is said,
Some say.
I say it just
Begins to live
That day.
- Emily Dickinson

2 AM and I'm still awake, writing a song
If I get it all down on paper, its no longer
Inside of me, threatening the life it belongs to
And I feel like I'm naked in front of the crowd
Cause these words are my diary, screaming out loud
And I know that you'll use them, however you want to
-Anna Nalick ("Just Breathe")

LORD POLONIUS: What do you read, my lord?
HAMLET: Words, words, words.
-William Shakespeare

I felt he found my letters and read each one out loud.
I prayed that he would finish but he just kept right on ...
Strumming my pain with his fingers,
Singing my life with his words,
Killing me softly with his song,
Killing me softly with his song,
Telling my whole life with his words.
- Robert Flack
