VERSE 1
UPON A PAGE, THERE IN BLACK AND WHITE
WE ARE LIES DISGUISED AS TRUTH
YET THERE ARE FOOLS WHO TRUST THE PEN
NEVER ASKING FOR OUR PROOF

PRE-CHORUS
WE ARE JAGGED KNIVES THAT PIERCE THE HEART
OF SOMEONE YOU SAY YOU LOVE
WE LEAVE SCARS AND DRAW FIRST BLOOD

CHORUS
WE ARE WORDS, WE CAN HURT
WE CAN A BRING A MAN TO HIS KNEES
STRUNG TOGETHER, HOWEVER YOU PLEASE
WITH POWER TO CHANGE YOUR WORLD
WORDS

VERSE 2
WE ARE WHISPERS IN THE STILL OF NIGHT
AS LOVERS UNCOVER THEIR SOULS
SHOUTS OF JOY WHEN THE RACE IS WON
TO THE VICTOR GO THE SPOILS

PRE-CHORUS
WE ARE WHAT YOU NEED WHEN YOU NEED US MOST
THE SOUND OF A MOTHER’S VOICE
WE ARE HOPE THAT DROWNS THE NOISE

CHORUS
WE ARE WORDS, WE CAN BURN
LIKE THE BRIGHTEST LIGHT YOU SEE
STRUNG TOGETHER, HOWEVER YOU PLEASE
WITH POWER TO CHANGE YOUR WORLD

BRIDGE
WORDS THAT WILLIAM SHAKESPEAR WROTE SO BEAUTIFULLY
WORDS THAT MARTIN LUTHER SPOKE TO MAKE A NATION DREAM
GOSPEL TO THE FAITHFUL, MEDICINE THAT HEALS
SOMETIMES YOU’LL FORGET US, BUT NOT HOW WE MAKE YOU FEEL

CHORUS
WE ARE WORDS, WE CAN STIR
AND MOVE A CROWD TO ITS FEET
WE’RE AT YOUR MERCY, SO HAVE MERCY PLEASE
THE START AND THE END OF WARS
NO POWER THAT’S QUITE LIKE OURS
WORDS, WE ARE WORDS, WE ARE WORDS
