Yes thought it might be holds faith but still cannot see where the speech bit comes in.

I think this may be
Holds forth

It would be ok with 'Show' and to make a speech, but still working on the full parse

If your letters were the other way round -
?a?t? ?o?d? the answer could be
Waste Words which would fit the clue perfectly?!

Do the words go into two separate places on the grid? If so can you check that you have them in the right order :-)
