Words

Words show me brightest of lights
Words show me darkest of nights

Words make tender my heart
Words tear my heart apart

Words make me without wings fly
Words make me break down and cry

Words make me build castles in the air
Words throw me into the world of despair

Words water my sweet dreams
Words dry my ambition’s streams

Words can heal the wound of swords
Words cannot heal the wound of words

Words are so powerful
Words are so wonderful
