This song was written to focus on the power of the tongue and the damage it can cause. Most importantly, it underscores the lasting injury and "scars" often caused by an individual's words in contrast to the forgiveness and healing power found in the Word of God.

Lyrics

Sticks and Stones
By Kindra In Christ

Verse 1
Does it make you feel powerful
To make me feel small?
Would it make you feel better if
I felt nothin’ at all?
Do you feel like a winner if
You believe that I lose?
Drawing blood with your tongue
Through the words that you use

Chorus
For sticks and stones may break my bones
But it’s your words that break my heart
They cut me to the very quick
For your tongue is razor sharp
And though you may forget those words
You spoke to me in haste
I can’t forget so easily
They carry too much weight
For sticks and stones may break my bones
But it’s your words that break my heart

Verse 2
Does it make you feel better when
You make me feel worse?
Does it make you feel valuable
When you question my worth?
Do you feel you’re superior
When you make me feel weak?
Putting me in my place
With the words that you speak

Chorus
For sticks and stones may break my bones
But it’s your words that break my heart
They cut me to the very quick
For your tongue is razor sharp
And though you may forget those words
You spoke to me in haste
I can’t forget so easily
They carry too much weight
For sticks and stones may break my bones
But it’s your words that break my heart

Bridge
The tongue holds the power
To wound and devour
To wield as a weapon
So let’s learn this lesson
It isn’t
Just chatter
Words matter
For sticks and stones may break my bones
But it’s your words that broke my heart

Final Chorus
Yes, sticks and stones may break my bones
But it’s your words that broke my heart
You can’t take back those things you said
And now I have lasting scars
And though you have forgotten all
Those words you spoke in haste
I never have forgotten them
But I forgive you just the same
For sticks and stones may break my bones
But God’s Word has healed my heart
Yes, sticks and stones may break my bones
But God’s Word
Mm-mm-mm-mm-mm
Has healed my heart
