You said I wasn't beautiful.
You said you didn't love me.
You called me all these nasty words.
I didn't believe in me, suddenly.
I cried and I cried
And I wished at night
That I could run away and die.
But then you came along and you said
That life is hard but there's no need to worry.
Even if that person doesn't say sorry.

[CHORUS]
But words can heal
As much as they can hurt.
They called you ugly.
But we called you beautiful.
Oh, words... they can heal.
Like they hurt.
Look around, this is real.
It's time that you learned.
That words can hurt.
But words can heal.
If you're smart enough
You'll smile and the world
Will smile along with you...

You said you didn't like me.
And I wondered what type you liked.
Skinny, blonde hair, bikini?
I'm sorry that I'm not what you like.
And they came on along.
And wiped away my tears.
The words that said I'm beautiful.
The words that washed away my fears.

But words can heal
As much as they can hurt.
They called you ugly.
But we called you beautiful.
Oh, words... they can heal.
Like they hurt.
Look around, this is real.
It's time that you learned.
That words can hurt.
But words can heal.
If you're smart enough
You'll smile and the world
Will smile along with you.

You called me ugly.
And it cut me like a knife.
You said I wasn't pretty.
No, I wasn't alright.
But they called me amazing.
The cut healed, they were my cure.
They said I was beautiful.
And wiped away my tears.

So, words can heal
As much as they can hurt.
They called you ugly.
But we called you beautiful.
Oh, words... they can heal.
Like they hurt.
Look around, this is real.
It's time that you learned.
That words can hurt.
But words can heal.
If you're smart enough
You'll smile and the world
Will smile along with you...

Words can heal...
As much as they can hurt.
If you're afraid this isn't real.
Look around, I'm right here...
