Lyrics

Words Are Knives

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
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
