Words

Words

Sherrié Austin

Words, they don't mean nothing
So tell me why they hurt so much
I meant to tell you something
It was on the tip of my tongue

Words rush by so quickly
And it's too late to take them back
I tried to say I'm sorry
And that goodbye was just an act

But all my words got in the way
And all the things I meant to say
Were not the things you heard
Oh, why'd you have to go
And take me at my word

Words come back to haunt you
Yeah, they just keep hanging around
I still can hear the echo
I still can hear their angry sound

But all my words got in the way
And all the things I meant to say
Were not the things you heard
Oh, why'd you have to go
And take me at my word

Words can say I love you
Oh, words can break a heart
I should have stopped you leaving
And told the truth right from the start

But all my words got in the way
And all the things I meant to say
Were not the things you heard
Oh, why'd you have to go
And take me at my word
