More than words (Renga)

Carpe Diem's "Remember This Music?" #1
I have chosen a song that I have loved for years. My children were teens when it came out and I remember purchased the Tape (yes it is that old).  I was shocked when I heard the other songs so hard and loud compared to this one song.  So I gave the tape to my son and my daughter made a tape of mixes with this song on "each" side,  for my long drive to and from Toronto.
The guitar and  the music speak to me "more than words".
I've included the lyrics at the end.
The goal is to write a four stanza renga inspired on the song of our choice
Extreme - More Than Words
 
that look
in blue liquid eyes
so much promise
our union spontaneous
communion of souls
engaged, in silence
touching, transcending
authentic love
exhaling you with each pore
you inhale, more than words

Extreme – More Than Words Lyrics


Saying I love you
Is not the words I want to hear from you
It's not that I want you
Not to say, but if you only knew
How easy it would be to show me how you feel
More than words is all you have to do to make it real
Then you wouldn't have to say that you love me
'Cause I'd already know
What would you do if my heart was torn in two
More than words to show you feel
That your love for me is real
What would you say if I took those words away
Then you couldn't make things new
Just by saying I love you
More than words
Now that I've tried to talk to you and make you understand
All you have to do is close your eyes
And just reach out your hands and touch me
Hold me close don't ever let me go
More than words is all I ever needed you to show
Then you wouldn't have to say that you love me
'Cause I'd already know
What would you do if my heart was torn in two
More than words to show you feel
That your love for me is real
What would you say if I took those words away
Then you couldn't make things new
Just by saying I love you
More than words
