Hawk Nelson - Words Lyrics




They've made me feel like a prisoner
They've made me feel set free
They've made me feel like a criminal
Made me feel like a king

They've lifted my heart
To places I'd never been
And they've dragged me down
Back to where I began

Words can build you up
Words can break you down
Start a fire in your heart or
Put it out

Let my words be life
Let my words be truth
I don't wanna say a word
Unless it points the world back to You

You can heal the heartache
Speak over the fear
(Speak over the fear)
God, Your voice is the only thing
We need to hear
(We need to hear)

Words can build us up
Words can break us down
Start a fire in our hearts or
Put it out

Let my words be life
Let my words be truth
I don't wanna say a word
Unless it points the world back to You
(Back to You)

Let the words I say
(Let the words I say)
Be the sound of Your grace
(Sound like Your grace)
I don't wanna say a word
Unless it points the world back to You

I wanna speak Your love
Not just another noise
Oh, I wanna be Your light
I wanna be Your voice

Let my words be life
Let my words be truth
I don't wanna say a word
Unless it points the world back to You
(Back to You)

Let the words I say
(Let the words I say)
Be the sound of Your grace
(Sound like Your grace)
I don't wanna say a word
Unless it points the world back to You
(Back to You)

Words can build us up
Words can break us down
Start a fire in our hearts
Or put it out

I don't wanna say a word
Unless it points the world back to You

    I love this song.
    .
    .
    I hate to nit pick...But...
    Can I say the artistic style in this video makes no sense. You have "prisoner", "free", "criminal" and "king" are beating like a heart but the word "heart" isn't! whats up with that?

    That said, Its still a beautiful song with wonderful word paintings. for eg 0:25 "they *LIFTED* my heart" the tone goes up. "They've dragged me *DOWN* " the tone falls. Not many songs can pull off good word paintings like this...AND that's why ppl are still listening 7 years later.

    This is a beutiful song. I think your right about we don't need to speak unless it points the world back to Jesus. I don't mean to not speak at all, but like songs. In 10 years from now, no one will know what look what you made me do by Taylor Swift even means! But this song has a real meaning to it that will be charished through decades!
