Verse 1

You can work magic with words.

You know just what to say to charm me,

You know just what to say to end fights,

You're really good at it, baby, but see.

Chorus

Words, they can make everything right,

Or they can be the start of a fight,

If somehow they end up coming out wrong.

So don't joke about things I've been waiting to hear for so long.

I grew up hearing this saying some days,

If you don't have nice things to say,

Then it's best for all if you just don't speak.

So don't joke about things that can make my knees grow weak.

Don't joke about things like love…

Verse 2

I'm not heart-broken, but I'm hurt.

Cause when I say those words, I mean it.

But who am I to teach you right and wrong?

So you can do whatever you deem fit.

Chorus

But words, they can make everything right,

Or they can be the start of a fight,

If somehow they end up coming out wrong.

So don't joke about things I've been waiting to hear for so long.

I grew up hearing this saying some days,

If you don't have nice things to say,

Then it's best for all if you just don't speak.

So don't joke about things that can make my knees grow weak.

Don't joke about things like love…

Bridge

I've always been impulsive,

But even I think twice before I tell you something.

Because I don't want to be the reason you hurt.

So don't joke about sensitive things unnecessarily.

Before you know it, another drama may start.

Chorus

Cause words, they can make everything right,

Or they can be the start of a fight,

If somehow they end up coming out wrong.

So don't joke about things I've been waiting to hear for so long.

I grew up hearing this saying some days,

If you don't have nice things to say,

Then it's best for all if you just don't speak.

So don't joke about things that can make my knees grow weak.

Don't joke about things like love…
