It Was All Of That

I thought it was the words,

  but it was more than that

 

I thought it was the feelings,

  but it was more than that

 

I thought it was the understanding,

  but it was more than that

 

And I thought it was the insight,

  but it was more than that

 

I thought it was the lyric,

  but it was more than that

 

I then thought it was the melody,

  but it was more than that

 

I thought it was the joy they brought,

  but it was more than that

 

And I thought it was the talk I talked,

  but it was more than that

 

I thought it was the times,

  but it was more than that

 

I thought it was the friendship,

  but it was more than that

 

I thought it was the love,

 but it was even more than that

 

And on the day that I stopped

  thinking

    —it was all of that!
