A popular love-ballad, "More Than Words" topped the charts around the world in 1990 and has since been covered by Westlife and parodied on TV shows.  It's been a tricky one to work out as parts are sung in duet, so I focused on the notes of the lead singer - I hope you enjoy the music notes below :)

 

B-^D  ^D-B  ^E-^D  ^D
Saying     "I     love    you"

^D   ^D   ^E     ^D
Are not the words

^D  ^D  ^D-^E ^D   ^C    ^D
I     want   to    hear   from   you...

 

B      B    ^D   ^D-B  ^E-^D  ^D
It's   not   that   I    want  you

^D  ^D  ^D
Not  to  say,

^D ^D  ^D-^E  ^D-^C  B
But   if   you   only   knew

A-B  ^C-B-A ^D   ^E    ^D
How   easy   it   would   be

^C     B       B       B    ^D      ^G-^F#-^G
To  show  me  how  you  feel    ~

 

^E        ^E     ^E-^C
More than words

^C ^F#  ^F#  ^E   ^F#-^G   ^F
Is    all     you   have   to    do

^F    ^F   ^G-F   ^F-^E
To     make   it   real...

 

^D      ^C   ^G-^D#
Then you wouldn't

^D   ^C   ^C-^D-^C-B
Have to say   ~     ~

B           B    ^D   ^D-^E
That you love me

^E     ^E   ^C-^F#-^D    ^G
'Cause I'd already know...

 

B            ^A     ^G    ^E-^F#
What would you do

^D  ^C  ^A  ^G   ^A   ^A-^B  ^G
If my heart was torn in two

^E         ^E     ^E     ^E   ^E-^D  ^C   ^E-^D-^E
More than words to show you feel   ~

^E      ^E     ^F#   ^F#  ^F#  ^E-^D  ^D
That your  love   for    me     is      real

 

B              ^A     ^G    ^E-^F#
What would you say

^D  ^C   ^A    ^G        ^A       ^A-^B-^G
If      I     took  those  words away   ~

^E       ^E     ^E-^E    ^E-^D    ^C     ^E
Then you couldn't make things new

^E   ^E   ^F#-^F#   ^F#   ^F#-^G  ^G
Just   by   saying       " I       love     you "

 

^C  B  A    B  ^C ^D  ^E  ^D  ^C   B
La  di  da,  da  di  da,  di  dai  dai  da

More than words

^C  B   A    B  ^C  ^D
La  di  da,  da  di  da

 

B     ^D  ^D-B  ^E-^D  ^D
Now that I've tried to

^D ^E ^D
Talk to you

^D   ^D  ^D-^E  ^D-^C-^D
And make you understand...

 

B-^D ^D-B ^E ^D ^D
All you have to do

^D   ^D   ^E    ^D
Is close your eyes

^D    ^D  ^D-^E  ^D  ^C-B   B
And just reach out your hands

A-B   ^C    ^C-B-A
And touch me

^D    ^E   ^D
Hold me close

^C-B   B-B   B   ^D  ^G
Don't ever let me go....

 

^E        ^E   ^E-^C
More than words

^C   ^F#  ^F#    ^E-^F#-^G
Is        all          I            ever

^F-^      ^F   ^G-F   ^F-^E
Needed you to show

^D     ^C   ^G-^D#     ^D   ^C   ^C-^D-^C-B
Then you  wouldn't  have   to   say     ~     ~

B         B     ^D    ^D-^E
That you love me

^E   ^E   ^C-^F#-^D  ^G
'Cause I'd already know...

What would you do

That  your  love  for  me  is  real

 

B    ^A   ^F#-^G   ^E-^F#
What would you say

Just   by     saying    " I       love     you " ...
