  • Couldn't you tell lies to me?
    Couldn't you say I'm pretty?
    Now that's enough
    Tells me that she hates the play ground
    How can they hurt, words are just sounds
    So take your shot.

    I don't want to see that they're making it hard for me
    At home I cry
    Bet that you think that you're on your own
    And you've no one's hand to hold
    Sticks and stones
    Hurt just a little
    Wouldn't it be wrong if we're all the same?
    Don't surrender don't you change
    Sticks and stones
    Hurt just a little

    With all the mean words they're ugly
    Starting to see I'm lucky
    And that's enough
    I'd rather be alone in my world
    I'd rather be the girl that gets hurt
    So take your shot

    I don't want to see that they're making it hard for me
    At home I cry
    Bet that you think that you're on your own
    And you've no one's hand to hold
    Sticks and stones

    Hurt just a little
    Wouldn't it be wrong if we're all the same
    Don't surrender don't you change
    Sticks and stones
    Hurt just a little

    Too young to buy my own bottle of vodka
    So I'd beg the driver please I need another
    How funny that I was too young for so many things
    Yet you thought I'd cope with being told I'm ugly
    Over and over I'd read it believe it
    Said no to the shrink I can fix me I think
    I got friends in my head they've got me on the mend
    I am pretty in my mirror, easy to pretend
    17 and thought that I'd won the jackpot
    Seems I didn't read between the lines of this one
    I can't think why I could of made you so, so angry
    Your bullets I don't feel them come on and fire at me

    Bet that you think that you're on your own
    And you've no one's hand to hold
    Sticks and stones
    Hurt just a little
    Wouldn't it be wrong if we're all the same
    Don't surrender don't you change
    Sticks and stones
    Hurt just a little Publisher: CONCORD MUSIC PUBLISHING LLC
