"Words" as written by Aristazabal Emi Chen Hawkes, Fyfe Dangerfield Hutchins, Ricardo Bombine Pimentel and Greg Stewart....
This night, this night just like the rest
These same thoughts running through my head
The same reckless phrase with a different face
They say, they say that I am worthless
But I'm not listening
I swear, and yet
Round round they spin like a record now
Same false hopes built to be broke down
Around and around
I'm falling down, again

Sticks and stones
May break my bones
Your words they surely kill
They surely kill

This feels the same
Complications in different situations
I am holding out for love
Is it worth it
To die a little each day
All for unseen grace

Sticks and stones
May break my bones
Your words they surely kill
They surely kill
Your words they surely kill
They surely kill
Your words are breaking down now

I would say
Where I've been to where I am
It is worth it
His grace
When all else fades
You can see it
His face
So now

Round round they spin like a record now
Same false hopes meant to be broke

These thoughts were meant to be broke down
These thoughts were meant to be broke down
These thoughts were meant to be broke down
These thoughts were meant to be broke down
These thoughts were meant to be broke down
These thoughts were meant to be broke down
These thoughts were meant to be broke down
These thoughts were meant to be broke down
These thoughts were meant to be broke down
These thoughts were meant to be broke
These thoughts were meant to be broke down

Sticks and stones
May break my bones
Your words they surely kill
They surely kill
Your words they surely kill
They surely kill
Your words are breaking down now

    This night, this night’s just like the rest.
    Thsese same thoughts just runnin’ through my head.
    Same reckless phrase with a different face.
    They say, they say that I am worthless, but I’m not listening.
    I swear, in the end.

    Round, round they spin like a record now.
    Same falsehoods built to be broke down.
    Around and around, I’m falling down, again.

    Sticks and stones may break my bones;
    Your words they surely kill, they surely kill.
    This feels the same.
    Complications and different situations.
    I am holding out for love.
    Is it worth it to die a little each day? All for unseen grace.

    Sticks and stones may break my bones;
    Your words they surely kill, they surely kill.
    Your words they surely kill, they surely kill.
    Your words are breaking down now.

    I would say, where I’ve been to where I am,
    It is worth it; it is grace.
    When all else fades, you can see it, this place.
    So now…

    Round, round they spin like a record now.
    Same falsehoods built to be broke down.
    These thoughts were meant to be broke down. (x 12)

    Sticks and stones may break my bones;
    Your words they surely kill, they surely kill.
    Your words they surely kill, they surely kill.
    Your words are breaking down now.

    It’s all for her, again. Yeah.

    General CommentThe person is nore important than any other. they are in love. and her words mean more to him than anyones. so if she says something hurtful, it hurts 10X more. your words will surely kill.

    General CommentI just think it means that words can kill a person.
    like bullying someone to the point of breaking. "Your words surely kill" as in the person dying inside because of the nastiness of the words

    General Commentit's about the words of god

    society slams christianity all the time and creates a doubt
    but nothing compares to the words of god
    i am surprised no one got this one earlier but probably because of the mistranslation

    "It is worth it; it is grace."
    is suppose
    "It is worth it; it his grace"

    people don't realize they're all christians, they use to lead worship at my youth group before they started touring all the time

    General Commentthis is my first time looking at the lyrics,
    ilike this song alot
    to me i think its about how people tell him he is worthless all the time [[this nights just like the REST; same RECKLESS phrases with different FACES]]
    and he has tried to not care about it, but he does.
    he is just saying that this one person who is saying this to him, her words hurt him more than ever,
    her words are killing him inside.
    he is trying to keep himself together for love but then thinks that maybe dieing inside isnt worth it, that she will never change.
    [i am hold out for love; is it worth it to die a little each day all for unseen grace]

    ahaha well i dont think i made to much sence in thattt,
    but im tried, it makes more sense to me !
    ahah im not good at explaining things.

    General Commenti think that someone is bulying him and its killing him on the inside "your words they surely kill. and he is trying to take it to change it "holding out for unseen grace" also he is saying that its the same thing every day and he is getting tired of it "round round they spin like a record now same falsehoods built to be broke down" but he is doing this to show them gods love. as anthonybooyay said its "it is worth it in his grace" thats just how i take it.

    My InterpretationI see it as both bullying and my very first (and last) breakup. The kid dated me for 14 months, said I was his everything, and ditched me, only to date one of my best friends 6 weeks later. He said that he cared, but he just ignores me, and his voice hurts me now; it no longer sounds comforting and happy on those rare instances he talks to me, but is perfectly normal around others, so it kills me and I die a little bit more each day...
