What are words

american.idolblog.com

Yesterday's President's Star Charity Show saw Chris Medina of American Idol fame performing his signature song "What Are Words". This song's been done to death over the radio and the web, but doesn't change the fact that it's what it is - amazing.

The story behind it is also a poignant one.





What Are Words by Chris Medina

Anywhere you are, I am near
Anywhere you go, I'll be there
Anytime you whisper my name, you'll see
How every single promise I'll keep
'Cause what kind of guy would I be
If I was to leave when you need me most

What are words
If you really don't mean them
When you say them
What are words
If they're only for good times
Then they're torn
When it's love
Yeah, you say them out loud
Those words, they never go away
They live on, even when we're gone

And I know an angel was saved
Just for me and I know I'm meant
To be where I am and I'm gonna be
Standing right beside her tonight
And I'm gonna be by her side
I would never leave when she needs me most

What are words
If you really don't mean them
When you say them
What are words
If they're only for good times
Then they're torn
When it's love
Yeah, you say them out loud
Those words, they never go away
They live on, even when we're gone

Anywhere you are, I am near
Anywhere you go, I'll be there
And I'm gonna be here forever more
Every single promise I'll keep
'Cause what kind of guy would I be
If I was to leave when you need me most

I'm forever keeping my angel close
