I think I bit my tongue today
No sign of blood
But this taste won't go away
Even if a wound does heal
Its scar might never fade

Unwelcome words can pierce
And drain the soul
Like aphids on the blossoms, leave a hole

Sometimes the heart and mind won't work together
And one gets left behind
While the other pulls ahead
Naive of where it treads

The residue of harmful words outlasts a seeming pardon
Little can undo the work of aphids in the garden

[Chorus:]
I can't believe that I hurt You with the words I've said
I can't conceive how I fooled my heart and lost my head
But as I watched with wonder as your jaw seemed to hit the ground
I realized that I stuck my foot right in my mouth
And what a big foot it is...

I wish that I could turn back time
Alter memory or pay some kind of fine
Anything to make amends
Fix this break to where it bends

The residue of harmful words outlasts a seeming pardon
Little can undo the work of aphids in the garden

[Chorus]

These words are fugitives
Too harsh or too honest
A little pain will gain
If I bite my tongue for your sake
