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
