Hurt By Words of Love

No one falls forever
But just now you can't see
When random anger flashes
Bright as bright can be

Old this feeling
Felt so many times before
A heart so certain now
Is suddenly unsure

And in the night you are seeing things
In the night you are whispering a name

Hurt by words of love
You've been hurt by words of love
Hurt by words of love
You've been hurt by words of love

All these shadows follow
Even in the day
What brought you low?
And lost for simple words to say?

Are you waiting for a sign?
For your dreams to fall in line?

Hurt by words of love
You've been hurt by words of love
Hurt by words of love
You've been hurt by words of love

You gave so much and now
You're weightless, on your own
The daily things you do
Are done for you alone

Clothes are crumpled
Lying random on the floor
You hope tomorrow
Will forget the day before

In the night you are seeing things
In the night you are whispering a name

Hurt by words of love
You've been hurt by words of love
Hurt by words of love
You've been hurt by words of love

Hurt by words of love
You've been hurt by words of love
Hurt by words of love
You've been hurt by words of love
