Our words have power and we must wield this power wisely because once the words leave our mouths no amount of love or money can take them back.


I can't find the poetry inside of me for sorry
I don't know what I said I was seeing red and my memory gets so blurry
I didn't think I'd ever see the day that I was hateful
Now I understand that energy for angers only wasteful

And I’m hoping I can put things right before the night is over
I can't expect your full respect I'm just trying to find some closure

The spoken word so quickly turns
Into broken worlds spinning in reverse
A sentence hurts and paragraphs can burn
I fall face first 'cause I never learn

My hasty words had intent to hurt it's a web of lies I've woven
And now I don't feel right inside after all the shit I've spoken
I wish I could rewind this track erasing yesterday
But the words I said behind your back are pacing through my brain

And it's gonna take a miracle to clear it all away
If you let me in forgive my sin I swear I’ll do the same
