Words Hurt Worse

Words hurt worse than most things
Words hurt worse than anything

Words hurt worse than stick and stones
Words hurt worse than broken bones

Words hurt worse spoken by a lover
Words hurt worse spoken by a brother

Words hurt worse than physical pain
Words hurt worse when they sink into your vein

Words hurt worse than mom and dad
Words hurt worse than any man can

Words hurt worse when it’s the truth
Words hurt worse, when they’re about you.
