Lyrics

Words
They cut like a knife
Cut into my life
I don't want to hear your words
They always attack
Please take them all back
If they're yours I don't want anymore

You think you're so smart
You try to manipulate me
You try to humiliate with your words
You think you're so chic
You write me beautiful letters
You think you're so much better than me

But your actions speak louder than words
And they're only words unless they're true
Your actions speak louder than promises
You're inclined to make and inclined to break

Words
They cut like a knife
Cut into my life
I don't want to hear your words
They always attack
Please take them all back
If they're yours I don't want anymore

You think you're so shrewd
You try to bring me low
You try to gain control with your words

But your actions speak louder than words
And they're only words unless they're true
Your actions speak louder than promises
You're inclined to make and inclined to break

Words
They cut like a knife
Cut into my life
I don't want to hear your words
They always attack
Please take them all back
If they're yours I don't want anymore

Friends they tried to warn me about you
He has good manners, he's so romantic
But he'll only make you blue
How can I explain to them
How could they know
I'm in love with your words
Your words

You think you're so sly
I caught you at your game
You will not bring me shame
With your words

But your actions speak louder than words
And they're only words unless they're true
Your actions speak louder than promises
You're inclined to make and inclined to break

Words
They cut like a knife
Cut into my life
I don't want to hear your words
They always attack
Please take them all back
If they're yours I don't want anymore

Too much
Blinding light
Your touch
I've grown tired
Of your words

Words (words)
A linguistic form that can meaningfully be spoken in isolation (words)
Conversation
Expression
A promise
A sigh
In short
A lie
A message from heaven
A signal from hell
I give you my word
I'll never tell
Language that is used in anger
Personal feelings signaling danger
A brief remark
An utterance
Information

Don't mince words
Don't be evasive
Speak your mind
Be persuasive
A pledge
A commitment
Communication
Words
