Isakov, Gregory Alan - Words Lyrics




Words mean more at night
Like a song
And did you ever notice
The way light means more than it did all day long?

Words mean more at night
Light means more
Like your hair and your face and your smile
And our bed and the dress that you wore

So I’ll send you my words
From the corners of my room
And though I write them by the light of day
Please read them by the light of the moon

And I wish I could leave my bones and my skin
And float over the tired tired sea
So that I could see you again

Maybe you would leave too
And we’d blindly pass each other
Floating over the ocean blue
Just to find the warm bed of our lover

And I’ll send you my words
From the corners of my room
And though I write them by the light of day
Please read them by the light of the moon

    for all of Gregory's songs, they are beautiful, but there is something so beautiful about the simple album cover that suits them so much. There's just something about it, I love it, as I do this corner of youtube.

    We only experience life when we know we are leaving soon 💔

    Aah this song i dont know, its just brings me so much things in my mind, in my heart, i've just told to my best friend that i am so grateful to have her in my life, she has changed me and gave me so much, idk i am simply happy to have her by my side. I feel so much gratitude..
    Sorry english is not my first language 😊

    Reddit brought me here

  17. R.... C....

    Thanks reddit

  18. b.... e....

    this song made me feel like i wasn’t happy being myself. a year ago i would listen to it and just think it was cute but now i feel like i should go back to my old self where i felt like i was more comfortable in my own body and mind. i even rearranged my room to when life was good for me i’m trying to get my old music like this back. it’s a little hard to stay happy but one thing at a time i guess. i feel like my life fell apart in the summer and i’ve changed. im not who i want to be, and i keep trying to convince myself that it’s gonna be okay and soon i will be comfortable being me but i don’t think it’s working much, as much as this song hurts me i love it. it’s so beautiful and it makes me think of when i was happy, i only get sad because i wish i had stayed the same.

    b.... e....

    Things will get better! Don't worry 💛😊 I'm very sorry you haven't been feeling yourself lately. Just know that everyone goes through hard times like that and you aren't alone 😊
    Wishing you a wonderful 2020! 😁

    Eu sinto tanto tua falta, a gente se vê todo dia na escola, mas não dá.... Tudo acabou de uma forma tão estranha, agora somos estranhos, as poucas vezes que nos falamos é pra falar sobre algum assunto de física aleatório ou sobre alguma música nova, estamos no último ano do ensino médio, logo iremos embora pra lugares diferentes e depois de anos, vamos ainda nos lembrar daqueles momentos incríveis, mas mesmo assim, sei que você vai encontrar alguém pra te amar pra sempre e cuidar de você melhor do que tentei... Enquanto eu, ficarei só, com uma angústia tão profunda que machuca e me faz não querer mais conversar com ninguém, nem mesmo levantar da cama, eu já estava assim antes de te conhecer, mas depois que te perdi, voltei a estaca zero, e depois de dois anos, tudo ficou pior...Enquanto você tem pessoas pra conversar ainda, você consegue amar alguém ainda, sente calor quando abraça alguém..... mas eu fico contando os dias pra ter coragem de acabar com isso.


    Edit: ninguém vai ler, mas.... Na vdd ela voltou a falar um pouco mais comigo nesse fim de ano, mas mesmo assim.... Não tanto quanto antes.

  20. K.... S....

    Songs likes this make me nostalgic about things and moments I never had

  21. A.... J....

    I love her, but I’ll never tell her that. I’ll send my words from the corner of my room. Hopefully, one day you’ll feel them sent from me, and finally see. Until that day, I’ll see your beautiful smile from across of room, and pray. Pray that, that happiness will be shown for me soon. I love you, Claire. Please feel them soon, it’s so hard to wait, but I’ll do it. Only for you.

    A.... J....

    You sound like a lovely person! I hope you and Claire are happy together now 💛
    Just make sure you don't wait too long to tell her how you feel! I know the feeling of missing the chance to be with someone because of being afraid or not being sure. Take the chance!
    Best of luck to you! 😊🌸

  22. J.... A....

    im sad n this is the perfect music i need

  23. A.... M....

    I am listening this at midnight... and I guess I can feel the song !

  24. H.... J....

    late night, just accidentally (i would call it a beautiful accident) found this guy, Gregory Alan Isakov, while me doing my homework.... I enjoy every second of it

  25. S.... W....

    I comes here when I want to sleep, it works

  26. j.... c....

    At the moment I’m writing a letter to an old friend. I abandoned her when she needed a friend the most. I have felt guilt and loss for too long. The ghost of her has haunted me for sometime. I don’t know what will come of it. I just hope she can forgive me.

    j.... c....

    Wishing you luck with your friend! It's sad to hear you lost contact with her, but reaching out to her again is very kind! I hope your message reached her well 🌸

    Ma anche quando la luna sembra calare... in realtà non cambia mai forma. Non dimenticarlo mai.

  28. M.... L....

    Our nighttime talks were the only happy times and I can’t stand how much I miss them.
    I will always always love you because I didn’t love you enough when you were there.

  29. .... ....

    Damn.. I wish I could find more songs like this or at least with a similar vibe. Any suggestions?

  30. L.... D....

    In love with my long distance lover but insecurities are killing me. And I cannot eat drink or even concentrate ok anything. I feel lifeless. I aspire to meet her soon and live happily. Because she is tue peace of my heart. In this life if its not her there won’t be anyone else.

  31. J.... A....

    I love this song.

  32. d.... m....

    why are their so many dying people here?, I'm already dead, dead inside and broken, but I love this song and it feels like im laying in bed losing myself again

  33. M.... _....

    my favorite song.

  34. C.... M....

    this song is so beautiful and damn it gets me in the feels. my boyfriend lives thousands of miles away from me. across the sea in a different country. i send him my words everyday but it isn't the same as being together. when he said "i wish i could leave my bones" i felt that

  35. X.... 1....

    haahhh.....akhirnya...:)

  36. P.... A....

    When I read the stories in the comments, I feel the pain they try to express. And I feel the sweet memories too. I hope each and everyone of you find the love you deserve...

    P.... A....

    You sound like a very lovely person! 😊 Wishing you the very best 🌸

  37. L.... R....

    Keep your head up, beautiful

    I usually listen this song before I sleep and I love his melody that bring me to deep emotional. Can anyone recommend some song like this one for me pls?

  43. M.... A....

    Funny how im writing my diary at night listening to this and missing my boyfriend who is in another country and i haven't seen him for two years...

    M.... A....

    Thats rough

    M.... A....

    @Dhanush Hegde yea pretty messec up

  44. P.... ....

    My friend died of autoerotic asphyxiation (jerkin w/ noose around neck with no spotter). Always have a spotter. This song reminds me of that.

  45. Y.... R....

    I’ve always felt this, but I couldn’t ever express it. This is it. This is it.

  46. L.... ....

    I thought I had heard every song from this album, years ago - only discovered it a couple of months ago! I cannot get over it.

  47. M.... K....

    Everytime I play this song I think of
    someone I cared
    about very much...
    Someone I so blindly gave my all to
    ... Tu sabes bien quien Eres... Te extrañe
    cuando intentaba dormir en la noche que dejamos de ser
    me impuse tanto a ti, recuerdo tu guitarra y como me cantabas....
    Si un dia me recuerdas no dudes en que Te quize mucho.

  51. S.... O....

    I'm a super saiyan.

  52. G.... F....

    my girl just broke up with me for the third time in the week, this time I think its forever, we've been together for about 2 years and things started to change, I don't get why but I guess she lost interest, btw im really unintelligent so it might be that, I don't really know what the song is about, im drunk af, don't expect those things from me lol

  53. C.... E....

    Destê we sax be

  54. N.... E....

    It's harsh being a human.... Having so much to live for.... I hope someday to understand my way and grow old... I hope death's as pleasant as it sound....... Don't fear The reaper my Brothers and Sisters.

  55. N.... S....

    I just discovered this song. After turning a new leaf and coming back after being gone a very long time it gives me a lot of hope that theres still more to experience out down here in the everyday, to be nostalgic over.

  56. D.... K....

    How could you be so grounded to roots in such a materialistic timeline...I shed my tears all the time listening to your simplicity

    D.... K....

    Quite true. Good to see that fellow Indians share the same taste. Have a great day. )

  57. Z.... ....

    I lost someone very precious to me and this song reminds me of him. I hope one day we can meet again. Please let my words reach his soul by the light of the moon.

    Kinda makes me remember the good times and the pain that came with those good times

  60. F.... t....

    I am suffering from an eating disorder and this song just fucking hit hard home 😭😭😭😭

  61. a.... ....

    Isn't it beautiful,this part of YouTube?
    Looking at the comments here,the genuineness,the hope,the love,everything;I feel so at home.
    I don't feel like I am alone anymore.
    It makes me smile and my heart smile and flutter in gentle happiness that such beautiful people exist ❤️

  62. D.... ....

    i love this side of youtube

  63. e.... b....

    I was here .🌙
    Bella🖌

  64. J.... R....

    This had 100k views 2 years ago. Not that it matters, tho im glad that people finally noticed.

  65. T.... L....

    I found heaven on earth

  66. L.... E....

    This is what music should be. Filled with soul and passion. Using words to take people to other worlds.......or memories.......
    The power to make someone think of something or someone that they haven't thought of in years. Music is so amazing in so many ways. Connecting people through the power of sound. This is pure

  67. i.... ....

    This song is the only song that can comfort me. My Best friend is tired of me and He doesn't even hang out with me anymore... My mom doesn't understand when I am in a bad mood, even tho she went through the same thing with my dad... He died 5 years ago, and I lost my boyfriend in a car wreck almost 3 years ago... We lived together for 2 and half years. I miss him so damn much. I feel so alone.

  68. S.... D....

    words in this song define beautiful

  69. A.... B....

    i’m falling in love and this song is gonna make me tell him.

  70. d.... o....

    i come here for healing, not having many friends 18 and alone in the USA for the first time about to start college, my mom struggles to work things out and the sad thing is i can't even help contribute cos i can't work yet, having an absentee father and basically just getting by on our skins , this song just makes me want to hang in there!

  71. S.... B....

    What a masterpiece love you guys 2019

  72. m.... ;....

    I’m not doing good at work. And I cannot find the comfort music gives me from anyone, not even him.

  73. L.... M....

    And the only thing i feel is numb

  74. J.... R....

    July 2019 anyone? What a song❤

  75. M.... E....

    This song will be my wedding song.

  76. R.... F....

    This song reminds me of the fact Ive been running away from all my life. That so many people are dying in this world not knowing true happines. Not knowing how to look at someone and just be happy seeing them. Not knowing how to be not sad. This song reminds you of the pain of existing in a world that felt so empty.

  77. S.... a....

    Listen to this song while laying down in a field starring up into the night sky with loved ones near by while telling stories.

  78. M.... M....

    Imysm. In the future, I'll find you & I'll love you. Idk if you still love me, but for me, you're still the one occupying my heart. As time passes by I will always cherish the moments we had together, and until then, I'll be patiently waiting until the wait is over.

  79. K.... A....

    YouTube you American beauty, I'm happy I give you a hundred twenty bucks each month.

  80. K.... A....

    Joint. Smoke. Beer. this song. My life the best life. First listen. Goodbye stranger.

  81. r.... l....

    God, I am twenty and I have never fall in love but this song makes me longing for someone nonexsistent and reminds me that I will be alone in my whole life.

    r.... l....

    Only if you keep thinking that way friend. Be patient and hope for the best, they'll come.

  82. A.... A....

    I fucking love her, but she's with somebody else. It hurts like hell.

  83. M.... K....

    Words mean more at night !! ❤

  84. I.... d....

    I feel sad for not knowing this masterpiece before!! Damn if you have any other songs like this please write it down so I can listen to it ❤️😣

    I.... d....

    Listen to "The Empty Northern Hemisphere" album in it's entirety.

  85. S.... B....

    Please don't write this kind of song ....😥😥😥

  86. L.... P....

    sometimes, between masks, lies, wickedness, division, money, perversion..... there are some pretty things in this world. very calm, a real moment of peace🧡

  87. n.... p....

    how come I just found out about this guy. OMG this song is amazing.

  88. c.... ....

    Those who matter to us only matter when they're gone. we dont realize the good things in our lives until they're gone only then do we feel regret and guilt for not appreciating their limited existence on this world and how everyone we ever knew and loved will fade away into eternal oblivion and you will never get the chance to show how much you actually appreciate them, so do it now.

  89. K.... B....

    I just hope he finds this song.

  90. B.... ....

    People in these comments are so kind why we can't live like this in real life!

  91. s.... p....

    its like I am touching the sound...…….like I touched you, its more than a song like I feel when I feel you....

  92. P.... E....

    This song is one of the most brilliant music I have ever heard. It's the most simplest.

  93. F.... T....

    How will we ever know if they’ll stay forever? If the love continues for eternity. Why’s love stop anyways? How can two people who truly love each other fade from that love? I don’t quite understand. I’ve never been in love but once I get there there’s no possible way I could stop. Nothing could get between me and my love. Her soft skin pressed against mine. Her lovely laugh and smile. That quiet peace when staring deeply into her eyes. Our naked bodies loving on each other all night. And all day we reminisce upon the memories we’ve built.

  94. J.... S....

    Enquanto escuto essa música penso na minha vida. Penso nas vezes que deixei de vivê-la. Eu sou um psicólogo recém formado que quer falar e não sabe com quem. Parece que eu me prendi num inferno de dor e sofrimento que eu não quero largar. E por mais dramático que isto seja é como eu me sinto, fazendo as mesmas escolhas todos os dias e reclamando de cada uma delas enquanto eu as faço. Como sair desse carrossel tão sombrio? Acho que quero vomitar há muito tempo. A vida já me mostrou coisas boas, mas não sei se consigo vê-las hoje, como se tudo o q eu visse virasse, automaticamente, parte desse inferno. Por que fiz o que fiz? Por que minhas escolhas me assombram e eu permaneço nelas. Eu quero fugir, mas não sei para onde e tudo o que sei é o que os meus olhos veem, existe um inferno em mim. E enquanto ouço essa música, repetidas vezes, me vejo sobre esse mesmo oceano, azul e profundo, mas sem ter as direções das estrelas para me levar a algum bom lugar. Eu deveria ser tbm uma estrela e não ficar mais aqui buscando uma para me salvar, sem que eu saiba do que ou para onde irá me levar.

  95. a.... z....

    this is the song that you should listen atleast once in ur lifetime
