"Words Are Not Enough"/"I Know Him So Well" is the fifteenth single from the British group Steps, and their fifth double A-side single. The former is a new song taken from the Gold: Greatest Hits compilation, while "I Know Him So Well" appeared on the Abbamania compilation and later Steps' own The Last Dance collection. The song "Words Are Not Enough" was slightly edited for a more radio friendly sound for the single release. This was their last single to be released before their Boxing Day split later that same month. The B-side was Bittersweet, which member Lisa and then-fiancé Johnny wrote together.

Music video[edit]

The video for "Words Are Not Enough" was almost fully animated, apart from a brief appearance from the band at the beginning and didn't feature a dance routine much like the rest of their music videos did. The video begins with the real Claire being sucked into a magic mirror and the rest of Steps following them. As they enter the magical world, they transform into computer animated characters. Meanwhile, the live Abbamania performance was used for the "I Know Him So Well" video.
