Tried to express myself in the most articulate way possible
No matter how articulate I was, my expressions fell short
I wish you could have heard my heart speak
'Cos when my mouth tried to form the words, they fell short
Alas, my words failed me.
They say out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks
My heart is full of many beautiful words
But this mouth does not always convey the right message
And my words come out in spurts
It's only a semblance of the image I would like to paint
Only a shadow of what my heart projects...
