Verse 1

You know it very well that I've been sensitive all my life.

So why do you say words that have the edge of a knife?

Your words are like darts thrown directly at my heart.

And you have an excellent aim, cause it tears me apart.

Chorus

But nobody gave you the license to act like this-

Being harsh and hurtful in the name of speaking the truth,

You'd be an expert sniper if words could be used to shoot.

Verse 2

I know it'd take you a lot of effort to be nice and sweet.

It's something you should be willing to do in a heart-beat.

Cause it takes just a few words to break a fragile heart.

But it takes a million seconds to rebuild trust from the start.

Chorus

And nobody gave you the license to act like this-

Being harsh and hurtful in the name of speaking the truth,

You'd be an expert sniper if words could be used to shoot.

Bridge

And when I bleed and bleed,

You're unapologetic about it.

How can you not feel remorse?

Guess I don't mean as much to you as I thought I did.

I should have known, of course.

Chorus

But nobody gave you the license to act like this-

Being harsh and hurtful in the name of speaking the truth,

You'd be an expert sniper if words could be used to shoot.
