Alias - More Than Words Can Say - About the song
This power ballad became a #2 hit in the United States, and reached #1 in Canada in 1990. The actual title of this song is "More Than Words Can Say," but many thought the name of this song is "I Need You Now" because this phrase is repeated many times in the chorus. There is also a lot of erroneous information about which band this song belongs to; some lyrics websites get their hair metal mixed up and credit it to FireHouse or Winger.
This song was written, arranged and co-produced by former Sheriff vocalist and bandleader Freddy Curci and guitarist Steve DeMarchi. At the time, their dissolved band had hit #1 with "When I'm With You," and the other band members had refused to come back together. Sensing the need to follow up the hit, Curci and DeMarchi joined ex-Heart members, guitarist Roger Fisher, bassist Steve Fossen, and drummer Mike DeRosier to form Alias. This tune, bearing striking similarities to "When I'm With You" (including a sustained last note), was a result.
More than words can say - Lyrics
Here I am at six o'clock in the morning Still thinking about you It's still hard, at six o'clock in the morning To sleep without you And I know that it might Seem too late for love All I know I need you now More than words can say I need you now I've got to find a way I need you now Before I lose my mind I need you now Here I am, I'm looking out my window I'm dreaming about you Can't let you go, at six o'clcok in the morning I feel you beside me And I know that it might Seem too late for love For love Oh, Oh, Oh I need you now More than words can say I need you now I've got to find a way I need you now Before I lose my mind I need you now More than words can say I need you now Oh I got to hear you say I need you now Before I lose my mind I need you now I need you now
