Tracy Lawrence – Sticks & Stones Lyrics Lyrics

 

[Verse 1]

You can take the house and everything in it

Keep the diamond ring ’cause that’s how I meant it

Sticks and stones are all they ever were to me

This material life with all it’s value

Don’t mean a thing to me without you

The love that we once had is all I need

 

[Pre-Chorus]

So take everything we have if it makes you happy

But darling let me say before I leave

 

[Chorus]

These sticks and stones ain’t all that makes a home

They don’t have arms to hold you when love goes wrong

Now you say we are through

Those sticks and stones may break me

But the words you said just tore my heart in two

 

[Verse 2]

Remember when we didn’t have a dime between us

You took my hand and said we don’t need much

Just as long as we’re together we would be fine

Now we’ve acquired all I thought would please you

I gave everything you know that I could

And still you’re telling me you’re not satisfied

 

[Pre-Chorus]

So take everything we have if it makes you happy

But darling let me say before I leave

 

[Chorus]

These sticks and stones ain’t all that makes a home

They don’t have arms to hold you when love goes wrong

Now you say we are through

Those sticks and stones may break me

But the words you said just tore my heart in two

 

[Tag]

These sticks and stones may break me

But the words you said just tore my heart in two
