The word that hurt you was a word of mine.
I didn't mean to say it, though I meant it at the time.
Now I'm alarmed at what I've done to you.
I feel like such a brutal man.

The word that hurt you came from deep inside.
I didn't want to say it, but I gave into my pride.
Now I watch you hold yourself in tight.
You look so awfully black and blue.

Wake up! Why won't you make up?
Will you forget what I said last night and
Kiss me! Why won't you miss me?
Did you decide this was our last fight, baby?

Better be more careful from now on.
Another word like that and she'll be gone.
Better learn to keep my tongue in place.
Never want to see that look on her face.

Yeah... [guitar solo]

Feel like such a brutal man.
The word that hurt you I can't defend (can't defend...)
It wasn't right to say it to a true and faithful friend.
Now I see the lines in your face change.
You look like you have things in mind.

Wake up! Why won't you make up?
Will you forget what I said last night and
Kiss me! Why won't you miss me?
Did you decide this was our last fight, baby?

Now that you've climbed into your aerie,
Safety encircled, bitter as coffee.
If I have no key to unlock your injury,
Darling, forgive me.
