Lyrics to song Empty Words by Christina Aguilera

Oh
Oh, yeah

The funny thing about hurt people
Is they tend to hurt people
The funny thing about lies is
They're only lies
The funny thing about hearts is
They tend to break easy
The funny thing about healing is
I'm alright

Your voice was like a knife
It used to make me cry
You tried to cut my pride
Not this time

So go ahead and say the things you gotta say
You know you're only throwing empty words my way
'Cause you won't break me, you won't break me
You can't take me down, no

The funny thing about listening is
I don't have to hear you
And the funny thing about talking is
Your words are tired
I've come to realize that
Life can be cruel but
The only approval that I need is mine

Your voice was like a knife
It used to make me cry
You tried to cut my pride
Not this time, yeah

So go ahead (go ahead) and say the things you gotta say
You know you're only throwing empty words my way (my way)
'Cause you won't break me (won't break me)
You won't break me (can't break me)
You can't take me down, no
So go ahead and say the things you gotta say (I wanna say it)
It's only empty words a million miles away
'Cause you won't break me (won't break me)
You won't break me (oh, you can't take me)
You can't take me down, no

The hardest part of this
Cannot be heard or seen
This journey starts when I begin loving me

So go ahead and say the things you gotta say
You know you're only throwing empty words my way
'Cause you won't break me (you're never gonna break me)
You won't break me (you're never gonna take me)
You can't take me down, no
So go ahead (say it) and say the things you gotta say (you gotta say it)
It's only empty words a million miles away (a million miles away)
'Cause you won't break me (won't break me)
You won't break me (never break me, oh, never, never)
You can't take me down, no

So go ahead and say the things you gotta say
You know you're only throwing empty words my way
