Mary Gauthier - Sweet Words Lyrics




I don't trust my eyes anymore
They don't know what they're looking for
Thinking back on what they didn't see
I think my eyes were blinding me

Some people never really love
They don't mean the sweet words they say
Other people can't see the truth
Didn't know I was that way
Didn't know I was that way

And I don't trust my ears anymore
They don't know what to listen for
They don't hear the spirit for the sound
My ears only serve to bring me down

Some people never really love
They don't mean the sweet words they say
Other people can't hear the truth
Didn't know I was that way
Didn't know I was that way

And I don't trust my heart anymore
It's busted open, bruised, beat up and sore
Even while it's limping 'round in pain
All it wants to do is reach for you again

I don't trust my eyes, I don't trust my ears
I can't trust my heart, it lied to me for years

Some people never really love
They don't mean the sweet words they say
Other people won't accept the truth
I didn't know I was that way
Didn't know I was that way

    There's a lot of suffering in this old world. There just is.
    Mary you are such a gift. Thank you for your raw honesty.
    And with all I have learned about you in the past several weeks there is one thing you are really wrong about.
    Yes you are an amazing story teller but you have one he'll of a voice!
    My god I love to listen to you.

    My judgements for finding a relationship seem to be always wrong,and end up getting hurt. This song reminds me of the mistakes I have made. Mary, I am sure there is alot of people that can relate to your music. You are the best song writer and the voice of an angel,and always sing with such feeling that comes from your heart. You are top of my list,and never tire of listening to your music. Please keep it coming, you are such a very talented lady.
