Words You Say, Hurt Badly
You can get hurt in a lot of ways.
Words hurt badly, and your heart decays.
Many things go wrong, and people anticipate.
I think people should appreciate.
Getting hurt is hard to get over.
Some people just do it without thinking, because they feel you are a pushover.
Say what you mean, and mean what you say.
It hurts sometimes to hear the words come out that way.
You try hard to do what you do.
And then everybody says the hell with you.
When you get older, the words hurt more.
But then again, who the hell wants to keep score.
Words hurt once, and then its twice.
I think you shouldn't say anything, if it's not nice.
People say things wrong, and they know they do.
You forgive, because that's you.
So in the back of your mind, you let go.
And sometimes the words that hurt, go away real slow.
So use your words wisely, and choose your words carefully, the way you should do.
Because one day those words will come back and climb in bed with you.
