Lyrics : Sticks And Stones
Chorus:
Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me
These are the words that I so often used to say
But I failed to realize, I couldn’t run and hide
For the words still cut deeper than the longest sharpest knife
Those words cut deep and changed my very life.
 
Fatty, fatty two by four, couldn’t get through the washroom door
These were some of the many words of death I heard each day
But I determined from the start, to avoid the fiery darts
By building up a fortress all around my aching heart.
 
Chorus:
 
Standing on the outside, forever looking in
Somehow I always felt that I could never win
And as the years went by, I learned how not to cry
By building up my fortress walls so strong and deep and high.
 
Chorus:
 
Not so many years ago, I gave my life, heart, and soul
To the only One who had the power to set my spirit free
And in His own sweet gentle way, Jesus took away the pain
And brick by brick my walls came down and I’ve never been the same.
 
Chorus:
Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me
These are the words that I so often used to say
But since I’ve met the Lord, my life has been restored
And those words that cut so deeply don’t matter anymore
Those words that cut so deeply just don’t matter anymore.
