Creative Brief

James Tanner is such a big inspiration to me with his wise words! I truly believe he's a lyrical genius!

 

Words Are Knives    James Tanner

 

Wield words wisely, knowing they can be sharp,

don’t use them as a weapon for cutting on a heart.

Say your piece in calmness, harsh tones rarely work

It makes hearts go on defense, when they’re nicked and hurt

 

Words are knives

that we can feel

Words are knives

without the steel

Our words can save

or destroy lives

Metaphorically

Words are knives

 

Many fights are started, not by “what” is said;

it’s “how” things are spoken, that can start a fight instead

How we put it matters, as much as what we say

Either way can cut us, and some cuts don’t go away

 

Words are knives

that we can feel

Words are knives

without the steel

Our words can save

or destroy lives

Metaphorically

Words are knives

 

(Bridge)

This is just the way that I see things

I’m just saying what I believe is true

We should learn to think before we speak;

become the person we’re talking to;

 

hear how they’re hearing you

 

Words are knives

that we can feel

Words are knives

without the steel

Our words can save

or destroy lives

Metaphorically

Words are knives
