Words, they cut like a knife Cut into my life
I don't want to hear your words They always attack Please take them all back
If they're yours I don't want anymore 
You think you're so smart You try to manipulate me
You try to humiliate with your words You think you're so chic
You write me beautiful letters
You think you're so much better than me

But your actions speak louder than words And they're only words, unless they're true
Your actions speak louder than promises You're inclined to make and inclined to break 
Words, they cut like a knife Cut into my life
I don't want to hear your words They always attack Please take them all back
If they're yours I don't want anymore 
You think you're so shrewd You try to bring me low
You try to gain control with your words 
But your actions speak louder than words And they're only words, unless they're true
Your actions speak louder than promises You're inclined to make and inclined to break 
Words, they cut like a knife Cut into my life
I don't want to hear your words They always attack Please take them all back
If they're yours I don't want anymore  Friends they tried to warn me about you
He has good manners, he's so romantic But he'll only make you blue
How can I explain to them
How could they know
I'm in love with your words Your words 
You think you're so sly
I caught you at your game
You will not bring me shame with your words 
But your actions speak louder than words And they're only words, unless they're true
Your actions speak louder than promises You're inclined to make and inclined to break 
Words, they cut like a knife Cut into my life
I don't want to hear your words They always attack Please take them all back
If they're yours I don't want anymore 
Too much blinding light
Your touch, I've grown tired of your (words)
Words, words 
A linguistic form that can meaningfully be spoken in isolation (words)
Conversation, expression, a promise, a sigh
In short, a lie
A message from heaven, a signal from hell
I give you my word I'll never tell Language that is used in anger Personal feelings signaling danger A brief remark, an utterance, information (I've grown tired of your words)
Don't mince words, don't be evasive Speak your mind, be persuasive A pledge, a commitment, communication, words
