"OFFENDING PAIN"

Verse 1
"Did you see it, what he did?"
"Did you hear the latest fib?"
These are words I hear some days,
And these are words that I, too, say;
And I've been guilty of verbal assaults,
And I'm ashamed to admit these faults.
Verse 2
I know there's damage that I've done.
Oh my God, what have I become?
Spreading rumors from ear to ear;
How the story can become unclear,
Telling people of another's life,
And using words that cut like a knife.
Chorus
I don't want to slander, don't want to accuse,
And I don't want to let my mouth abuse;
I will be silent, yeah, I'll refrain,
And I will put an end to offending pain.
Verse 3
Stop for a minute and hear her cry,
See the tears dripping from her eyes.
Her heart is wounded from the words I said,
And the tongues of fire that I've fed.
Repeat Chorus
Verse 4
I wish that I could take back everything
That left a scar and an unfriendly sting,
'Cause I've been reaping everything I sowed,
And on my conscience is a heavy load.
Repeat Chorus two times
