The Words Lyrics
All of the lights land on you
The rest of the world fades from view
And all of the love I see
Please please say you feel it too
And all of the noise I hear inside
Restless and loud, unspoken and wild

Colin (The man) had a childhood friend of whine he dated. As time passes the two drift apart and he moves into the city. He finds out that his old friend had passed away and left the house for him in her will. He struggles to say goodbye and to accept that she’s gone. Before he leaves, he takes some of her favorite flowers back with him so he could give them to people who knew her. Once he gets back into the city he immediately brings some flowers to a flower shop and gives it to a clerk who was probably one of her friends. That shows why he gave her a warm smile when he saw her and it faded after she turned away. Once he got back to the truck he gave a flower to the ghost which showed that he could finally say goodbye.

It sounds like two lovers knowing that there meant for each other and cant verbally admit it. Perri seems like the protagonist waiting for her lover to say the words to make it official.
