Words, words
A linguistic form that can
meaningfully be spoken in isolation
Conversation, expression, a promise,
a sigh
In short, a lie
A message from heaven, a signal from hell
I give you my word I'll never tell
Language that is used in anger
Personal feelings signaling danger
A brief remark, an utterance, information
Don't mince words, don't be evasive
Speak your mind, be persuasive
A pledge, a commitment, communication, words

'Words' by Madonna
