Well it was brave of you
To go out alone,
To come here all alone.

And it was brave of you
To stay and stand your ground,
To not back down.

Your neighbors prayed for you
While you were all laid up -
Though it was all your fault.

And no one prayed for me
Though you put me out.
You pulled me down.

Those were the sharpest words!
They cut through more than bone!
Those were the sharpest words!
They cut through more than bone...

Now I can't shake the words
From your bloodied mouth;
Just keep coming out.

Someone please speak to me!
Wake me from my thoughts.
Face what I have wronged.

Those were the sharpest words!
They cut through more than bone!
Those were the sharpest words!
They cut through more than bone...
