lyrics

Here’s a girl whose soul is roadworn
Here’s a girl whose heart has been torn again and again
If life were fair she wouldn’t have these thorns
Stuck in her hands, stuck in her heart stuck in her mind

But again and again she finds
Every single thing she does reminds her
Pulls up memories best left behind
Of where’s she’s from, of what she’s done, and who she’s become

Can’t you see she’s got it rough enough
Without you making her life more tough
Sticks and stones can break through bones
But words cut deeper in the long run

She beats down on herself
Keeps her heart locked away inside a box on her shelf
Doesn’t matter what anyone does or says
It’s locked up for the rest of her days

Will she ever open up again
Will she ever find a friend
Who she can trust
Who doesn’t turn and walk away

Can’t you see she’s got it rough enough
Without you making her life more tough
Sticks and stones can break through bones
But words cut deeper in the long run
But words cut deeper in the long run
Yet words will keep her safe in your arms
And words will heal her wounds and scars
