WORDS Words & Music by John Mollenhauer, c. 2015
They can take a wicked man and make him holy
They can make the difference between war and peace
They can comfort you in silent desperation, they can make your trembling cease
Put a tear of joy into your eye, they can make you laugh until you cry
Take a heart of stone and make it melt
Words mean something. Words mean something. Words mean something
if you choose them well.
Now Jesus Christ, His words are in the Bible
He healed the sick and even raised the dead
And the people killed him not for all the things he did, but for the things he said
Ever since the birth of Palestine those words have stood the test of time
People still fight over them today
Words mean something. Words mean something. Words mean something.
No matter what you say
Some of them teach us, we call them wise
Some of the deceive us, we call them lies
Some of them can lead us, yeah, some words criticize
So it should not come as much of a surprise
The right one cuts with surgical precision
Directly to the jugular vein
All it takes is “baby how I love you,” next to someone else’s name
Oh sticks & stones can break your bones but words can break your heart, your home
Give me broken bones any day
Words mean something. Words mean something. Words mean something.
So be careful what you say.
