Lyrics explained in details
We will have a look at the first verse to begin with
“It’s amazing how you can speak right to my heart."
In this line the singer talks about how his ladylove can understand him and his feelings completely.
“Without saying a word, you can light up the dark."
Here he says, how when a person feels very low and depressed, there’s always a special person in their life who can make them feel better just with their presence, without even saying a word.
“try as I may, I could never explain what I hear when you don't say a thing."
He says that when his lady love is with him, even when she is not saying anything, he can feel the love, affection support and warmth that she has for him.
Let’s look at the lines of the chorus
“The smile on your face lets me know that you need me. There’s a truth in your eyes saying you'll never leave me."
These lines convey the message that when he sees his love smiling at him, he can see how much she needs him and feels for him. The singer can look in to his lady love’s eyes and see how much she loves and cares for him.
“The touch of your hand says you'll catch me whenever I fall. You say it best when you say nothing at all."
So here he is not saying that his girlfriend will pick him up if he falls down literally. He means to say that whenever he is in a dark phase of his life or, whenever he feels low, his partner will always come to his rescue and help him come out of such thoughts and situations.
Let’s look at the second verse
"All day long I can hear people talking out loud, when you hold me near, you drown out the crowd."
Here the singer talks about how there are so many people in our lives and everyone has their opinions to share. But there’s that one person who just connects with us in a real way, not like the superficial friends we may have all around us.
“Try as I may I can never define what's been said between your heart and mine.”
Here he says that he can’t explain in words the bond that he shares with his girlfriend and it is very special and unique.
So this is what the lyrics of the song are trying to convey and we hope you have understood this information completely. You can listen to the lyrics of such songs and improve your English pronunciation and sentence formation.
