WORDS

 

I still hear you soft and clear

Your lips close to my ear

Whispering how much you loved me

 

You never told me a lie

Meant it all once upon a time

Tryin’ to write that storybook ending

We were happy then

               

Chorus:

Told each other we were forever

The stay up all night dreams that we made

But promises always sound better

When the heart can stand behind what you say

You love, you lose, you learn

They’re only words

 

Can’t shake away that goodbye

Echoin’ around in my mind

Over and over and over

 

Part of me wants to believe

We said things we didn’t mean

Just sticks and stones we were throwing

In the heat of the moment


           

 

     Bridge:

They’ll only bruise us if we let ‘em

Only words

And I could easily forget ‘em

If you want me to

Do you want me to

 

And we could go back to forever

To the stay up all night dreams that we made

Promises always sound better

When the heart can stand behind what you say

We could take ‘em back,

And heal what we hurt

Cuz they’re only words
