In a Manner of Speaking
Nouvelle Vague Lyrics


In a manner of speaking
I just want to say
That I could never forget the way
You told me everything
By saying nothing

In a manner of speaking
I don't understand
How love in silence becomes reprimand
But the way that I feel about you
Is beyond words

Oh give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me nothing
Oh give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me everything

In a manner of speaking
Semantics won't do
In this life that we live
We only make do
And the way that we feel
Might have to be sacrificed

So in a manner of speaking
I just want to say
That like you I should find a way
To tell you everything
By saying nothing

Oh give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me nothing
Oh give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me everything

Oh give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me nothing
Oh give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me everything

In a manner of speaking
I just want to say
That I could never forget the way
You told me everything
By saying nothing

In a manner of speaking
I don't understand
How love in silence becomes reprimand
But the way that I feel about you
Is beyond words

Oh give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me nothing
Oh give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me everything

In a manner of speaking
Semantics won't do
In this life that we live
We only make do
And the way that we feel
Might have to be sacrificed

So in a manner of speaking
I just want to say
That like you I should find a way
To tell you everything
By saying nothing

Oh give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me nothing
Oh give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me everything

Oh give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me nothing
Oh give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me everything

Be my friend if you have discovered this by yourself.

@wayfaringshaman Ha ha I love your anger. And you are absolutely right.

What does it matter how anyone discovers anything? The only thing that matters is that you found it and you enjoy it. This faux sense of esprit de corps that you people derive from being anywhere "first" is moronic and to be laughed at. It is elitism without merit. This is a cover band, which means these songs had literally all been discovered long ago. It is the age of the internet, you can't "discover" anything anymore—not in the traditional sense—everything is right there, because someone put it there, and everyone is everywhere. There is no mystery in this world anymore. You didn't "discover" this "by yourself." You may think that it is you who clicked on the button that led you here, but someone put that button there first for you to click, some machine, some math equation tracked your online activity and potential tastes and placed things on the surface for you to "discover" so easily.

No, I will not be your friend, I just want to listen to music and turn off all of today's bullshit.
