Words are not my friend

Words, words are not my friend
Words, words only take
They never live

So whisper if you say them
Or maybe don't speak them at all
'Cause they'll watch as you stumble
Then laugh when you fall

Words, words, words expose you
As a fool
Words, words have been the means
For every voice I've ever heard be cruel

--Dwight Yoakam
