Speak the Word
Tracy Chapman Lyrics


Unsettled hearts
Promise what they can't deliver
Bring me the wine
And the cold night air to clear my head
Gray matter memory house
Master of this trembling flesh
Steady still my doubts
Let me speak the word that precedes bliss
Let me speak the word
Let me speak the word

Love love love love love love love love

Let me speak the word
Let me speak the word

Love love love love love love love love

Let me speak the word
Let me speak the word

Let me speak the word
Let me speak the word

These weakened knees
Have not touched ground or pew in ages
I haven't bowed my head
To offer thanks to any god or to ask for favors
But watch me now
I'm falling down
Praying
To speak the word that precedes bliss
To speak the word
To speak the word

Love love love love love love love love

Let me speak the word
Let me speak the word

Love love love love love love love love

Let me speak the word
Let me speak the word

Let me speak the word
Let me speak the word

Speak the word
Let me speak the word
Let me speak the word
La la la, la la la la
Let me speak the word
Let me speak the word
La la la la, la la la la la
Let me speak the word
Let me speak the word
La la la, la la la la
Let me speak the word
Let me speak the word
La la la la, la la la la la
Let me speak the word
Let me speak the word
La la la, la la la la
La la la la la la la la (speak the word, speak the word)
La la la la la la la la (speak the word, speak the word)
La la la la la la la la (speak the word, speak the word)

Tracy-absolutely incredible. This song is espectacular

Jaycinth Massey

Tracy Chapman...lyricist, musician and singer...so underrated as an artist in a industry of marketable untantelened auto-tuned singers who have never put pen to paper to write a word or note for any song.
