I'll Take Sticks and Stones

© 2016  Charly Humbolt

capo third fret

(INTRO)
Iíll take sticks and stones 
Iíll take sticks and stones

***

the loudest thing I ever heard was
good bye I don't love you anymore

the hardest thing I ever said was
be gone with you do you think I care

I'll take sticks and stones
I'll take sticks and stones
I'll take sticks and stones
yes

it's the words that will
harm
you

yes I'll take sticks and stones
yes

I'll take sticks and stones any
day

so put on the mask with those
big smiling eyes
hiding the falling tears and
muting those cries

but no disguise can fully conceal
the hurt we feel
no disguise can conceal
what our hearts reveal

no free riders on this moving train
each carries their own share of pain
who says what first will hear the other say
what they believe must be said last

I'll take sticks and stones
I'll take sticks and stones
yes

it's the words that will
shame you

yes I'll take sticks and stones any
day

so put on those dark shades to
cover those red eyes
hiding the sad after
so many tries

but no disguise can fully conceal
oh the hurt we feel
no disguise can conceal
hearts are not made of steel

I'll take sticks and stones
yes I will I'll take sticks and stones
yes I will - I'll take sticks and stones
it's those words that will
scar you
scar you (damn words)
(damn words)

it's the words that will
scar you

It's those damn words
yes I'll take sticks and stones any
day
