What Are Words?

Indeed, what are words if we do not mean them? Are they just masks that we wear to hide our faces or hearts?

Today, I shared my blog post on ONE TO TOUCH YOU with one of my students who was touched and then insisted that I watched Chris Medina's music video on "WHAT ARE WORDS?"

I did and I must admit I am deeply touched not just by his voice or music but the emotions and love behind the writing of this song, his life and all that he is going through at this point of time. Most importantly, I am touched by his devoted love and commitment to the love of his life - that during the worst times, he is standing by her.

Those of you who follow the American Idol (I don't) would be aware that Chris Medina did not make it for the finals. Still, look at the way he has evolved and making waves in the music scene all because he is a sincere young man singing from his heart.




According to THIS SITE:

The achingly beautiful song reminds us a bit of James Blunt. The song features spare instrumentation, but it’s Medina’s big voice that takes center stage. This ballad will definitely have you wondering why he didn’t make the cut.


His words (“I would never leave / When she needs me most / What are words / If you really don’t mean them when you say them / What are words / If they are only for good times”) are a direct reference to staying by his fiancĂ©e Juliana Ramos’ side. She suffered brain damage from a car wreck two months before they were to be married. Knowing this back story, the song resonates and strikes even more of an emotional chord.


Medina performs the song this evening on ‘The Tonight Show With Jay Leno,’ proving that you don’t need to be a finalist on ‘Idol,’ much less the winner, to capture America’s heart.

What Are Words? by Chris Medina

Anywhere you are, I am near
Anywhere you go, I'll be there
Anytime you whisper my name, you'll see
How every single promise I keep
Cuz what kind of guy would I be
If I was to leave when you need me most

What are words
If you really don't mean them
When you say them
What are words
If they're only for good times
Then their done
When it's love
Yeah, you say them out loud, those words
They never go away
They live on, even when we're gone

And I know an angel was sent
Just from me and now know I'm meant
To be where I am and I'm gonna be
Standing right beside her tonight And I'm gonna be by your side

I would never leave when she needs me most

What are words
If you really don't mean them
When you say them
What are words
If they're only for good times
Then their done
When it's love
Yeah, you say them out loud, those words
They never go away
They live on, even when we're gone

Anywhere you are, I am near
Anywhere you go, I'll be there
And I'm gonna be here forever more
Every single promise I keep
Cuz what kind of guy would I be
If I was to leave when you need me most

I'm forever keeping my angel close
