For killing the past and coming back to life”

Is not the words I want to hear from you
It’s not that I want you

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
Cos I’d already know”
As the title suggests, this ‘Extreme’ song urges lovers to show feelings of love with actions, in turn making them real .
