careful.

Be careful with your words, my dear
Be careful with your sighs
Be careful with confessions,
With your omissions and your lies

Be conscious of your promises
Your encouragements and ย  s m i l e s,
Be wary of the kindness
That is hurting all the while

Take caution with your lips, my dear
Your truths are full of dust
From the disuse of a month, a year-
And Iโ€™m all out of t.r.u.s.t.

Your foolish words are empty, dear
You know this to be true
And if you do not take more care
Theyโ€™ll all catch on to you
