  • Don't tell me that you are ready to change
    Don't tell me from now it won't be the same
    It doesn't matter, 'cause at the end of the day,
    It isn't what you say, it's what you do

    Yea!

    What you say will be forgotten some day
    (What you do will be remembered)
    Empty promises always fade away
    (What you keep will last forever)

    Don't tell me you'll make things better for us
    (Don't tell me)
    Don't tell me that you're someone I can trust
    (Don't tell me)
    It doesn't mean a thing to me just because,
    It isn't what you say, it's what you do
    Your actions will speak louder than you

    What you say will be forgotten some day
    (What you do will be remembered)
    Empty promises always fade away
    (What you keep will last forever)

    Forever!
    (What you keep will last forever)

    So show me that you really figured it out,
    And show me everything that you are about
    If you can't then you should just shut you mouth,
    'cause I don't care what you say or what you do
    You can't take back what you've put me through
    Your actions will speak louder than you

    What you say will be forgotten some day
    (What you do will be remembered)
    Empty promises always fade away
    (What you keep will last forever)

    What you say will be forgotten some day
    (What you do will be remembered)
    Empty promises always fade away
    (What you keep will last forever)

    Forever!
    (What you keep will last forever)
    Forever!
    (What you keep will last forever)
