I shape the words
Then push them out
Never quite knowing
How fierce they will sound
My eyes may deceive
How i truly feel
But my own sharp tongue
Can't decide what is revealed
Speak when spoken to
But i speak when i please
And when the words come out
They all fall to their knees
I try to say sorry
But my tongue it deceives
The one true meaning
Of all I believe
When some words are spoken
Though they're not meant to be
These words bring us torture
The words aren't from me
What possesses me to say that?
What possessed you to leave?
Were these words oh, so cruel?
Did they crush all your dreams?
That wasn't my intention
Surely not in my plan
I left you suspending
From the palm of my hand
These words that i shape
It's not really me
I am being controlled
By something unseen
I push out these words
With all the strength in my lungs
But when they leave my mouth
It really isn't what i want
