Dirty Words

Why did you say that; why didn't you think?

Once spoken, your words, you can never get back

So hurtful to other's, so ridiculous to you

There's no way anyone could take them seriously, could they?

Oh, how you wish to take them back,

But the damage is considerable; the damage is done

Now you live with the consequences, a world of dark shadows

Judged by what you said, in what was supposed to be a joke

But your words were weapons, that cut someone else so deep

Once they're out there, there's no explaining yourself,

That they don't represent the way you really feel

They may not be cursing, but they're still dirty words!
