Aguilera, Christina - Empty Words Lyrics

The funny thing about hurting people
Is they tend to hurt people
The funny thing about lies is
They're only lies
The funny thing about hearts is
They tend to break easy
The funny thing about healing is
I'm alright

Your voice was like a knife
It used to make me cry
You tried to cut my pride
Not this time

So go ahead and say the things you gotta say
You know you're only throwing empty words my way
Cause you won't break me, you won't break me
You can't take me down, no

The funny thing about listening is
I don't have to hear you and the
Funny thing about talking is
Your words are tired
Now I've come to realize that
Life can be cruel but
The only approval that I need is mine

Your voice was like a knife
It used to make me cry
You tried to cut my pride
Not this time (yeah)

So go ahead and say the things you gotta say
You know you're only throwing empty words my way
Cause you won't break me, you won't break me
You can't take me down, no

So go ahead and say the things you gotta say
It's only empty words a million miles away
Cause you won't break me, you won't break me
You can't take me down, no

The hardest part of this
Cannot be heard or seen
This journey starts when I begin loving me

So go ahead and say the things you gotta say
You know you're only throwing empty words my way
Cause you won't break me, you won't break me
You can't take me down, no

So go ahead and say the things you gotta say
It's only empty words a million miles away
Cause you won't break me, you won't break me
You can't take me down, no

So go ahead and say the things you gotta say
You know you're only throwing empty words my way

    Mental abuse I do not see what they've been doing to me I've been physically abused I've been imprisoned I've been verbally harassed and beaten every single day for over 3 months none of you would have been as patient as I have been none of you would have shown the kindness I have shown and none of you has spent the time and been real and been generous and I've loved his people as much as I have now that I'm mad now that I don't want nothing to do with all of this I get called a rapist and every girl on here hates me craft assholes that's exactly why I don't trust any of you I know who I can trust and who I can't Genji when I knock you out I'll help you back up and kiss you on the cheek I love you brother bro whenever you're down you can call me I always have your back no matter what the rest of y'all eat it I'm done with the sideshow you're right I have to be about me because I can't be about anyone else until I do

  47. Judy Krynn Edwards

    This song gives me the POWER to not let another person hurt me

  48. Rofskee Banua

    I just wonder why this kind of song with beautiful melody and lyrics didn't become popular and should get a lot of awards

  49. MaRiece Allen

    Physical abuse leaves visual bruises. But verbal abuse hurts mentally, and if you can overcome it then you are strong. Just know that you are loved by others in your life. And please get away from that negativity! It hurts and never stops until we realize that the words they say, are only their self doubts. REMEMBER THAT YOU ARE MORE THEN WHAT THEY SAY!!!

  50. Mary swords

    Funny thing is. I don't ?

  73. Kamilla Iqbal

    Why not show the pretty pic throughout the whole video instead of just black????

    countrygirl countrymusiclover

    Kamilla Iqbal how the fuck is this a VIDEO???? It's literally a blurred almost shadow like picture of Christina a bunch of words on the screen and a song in the background. That means that this has LITERALLY NOTHING to watch. VIDEOS have stuff to watch. This is an AUDIO not a VIDEO dumb shit. Get a fucking dictionary and learn the difference. Both AUDIO and VIDEO are in the dictionary with the definitions of.the words out beside them for those that don't know the difference between the two words. Course I thought by now everybody knew the definition and difference of the two words

  74. Joy Walker

    Her lyrics are so sad and uplifting at the same time people forget that she's actually human and they don't care what they say

  75. Marsha Hopson

    This song help me get over the love of my life that man hurt me like no other

  76. Marinelle Chulsuwan

    My exbf was very absuive verbally to where he would push my button and bring up family matter and the whole hiv thing knowing he himself slept around and that’s how he got it. Now he’s blaming his entire life that it’s all my fault. I’m still battling with this Asshole he’s Ruined my reputation took every confidence I worked so hard for from my last relationship 2 years in the making. I shouldn’t blame that on him cuz that makes me a hypocrite but when is he going to stop and just realize that he’s doing me wrong if so using me for his convenience and benefits. I’m the candle wax and he’s the flame. I was so in love still am with him but eveytiem we run into each other nothing but anger and physical abuse welcomes my way. How do I help him cope with accepting and apologizing? I love this man but 2 years of being there for him brought nothing but pain now. Jail time. And now I’m having a hard time getting a job let alone deal with my hiv and all his threats to my family and my well being. Sometimes I don’t feel human anymore that’s how much he damages people and people still linger around him like he’s angel. There’s nothing more I can say now. Thank you. Goodbye and I love you

    Marinelle Chulsuwan

    Resa thank you so much. I am crying now realizing how ducked up I am for allowing someone like that to happen I felt bad for him I fed him I snuck him around so he stay warm I did what I could and he didn’t see any of what I did or even appreciated any of them. It still hurts I’m still bleeding. But knowing therrr are people out there like you I’ll keep going strong and will keep fighting even tho these tears are just tears and they hurt I’m getting stronger and soon I’ll find thst love of my life

  81. Mario OVALLE Romero

    My friends and family
    How is it that a struggle is worth awhile. A thousand WORDS could add up for a life time. Being defeated In A circumstance that Man may not know of.. In deliberate sadness. I AM.. HOW TO PROCEED IN WHAT WE PURSUE IN LIFE.... AN THAT'S THE TRUTH OF MY IMMORALITY IN SPIRIT OR IN THA BODY. FOR THE FLESH NO EXistance in Me ....
