Lyrics [Chorus]:
THE HURT RUNS DEEP,
WHEN ANGRY WORDS
ARE SPOKEN,
AND COUNTLESS
NEEDLESS TEARS
ARE ALWAYS SHED.
FAR TOO OFTEN
TENDER HEARTS
ARE BROKEN,
ALL BECAUSE
THOSE ANGRY WORDS
ARE SAID.

[verses]:
(spoken):
HONEY, AS YOU KNOW,
I STORMED OUT
OF THE HOUSE
AGAIN THIS MORNING.
I SLAMMED THE DOOR,
AND DIDN'T EVEN STOP
TO TAKE YOUR USUAL KISS.
WELL, ANGRY WORDS
CAN MAKE US DO THINGS
AT TIMES
WITHOUT ANY WARNING,
THAT'S WHY
I COULD HARDLY WAIT
TO GET HOME FROM WORK
TO TELL YOU THIS:
(sung):
FIRST OF ALL,
BABY,
YOU'RE MY REASON
FOR LIVING,
WHY,
YOU'VE STUCK WITH ME
WHEN THINGS
WERE AT
THEIR VERY WORST.
OH,
I KNOW
YOU'VE GOT THE HOME
AND THE KIDS
AND ALL THE JOY
THEY'RE GIVING,
BUT HONEY,
YOU KNOW
YOU ALWAYS DID
AND YOU ALWAYS
WILL COME FIRST.
WE FOUND OUT
A LONG TIME AGO
THAT MARRIED LIFE
ISN'T ANY PARADISE.
AND I'M CERTAINLY
NO ANGEL,
OR ELSE
I'D HAVE
A PAIR OF WINGS,
BUT BABY,
YOU KNOW
THERE'S SOMETHING
I'VE JUST GOT
TO MAKE YOU REALIZE,
AND THAT IS,
I LOVE YOU,
HONEY,
IF THAT MEANS
ANYTHING.

[Chorus]:
THE HURT RUNS DEEP,
WHEN ANGRY WORDS
ARE SPOKEN,
AND COUNTLESS NEEDLESS TEARS
ARE ALWAYS SHED.
FAR TOO OFTEN
TENDER HEARTS
ARE BROKEN,
ALL BECAUSE
THOSE ANGRY WORDS
ARE SAID.
