Shut My Mouth

Shut My Mouth 

I've been worried 
That my smart mouth
And sharp tongue
Were causing you harm
Slicing beneath the skin

So I started watching my words
And locking my lips
To prevent further damage
I gave it some time
The chance to sink in

But in doing so 
I tied more than my tongue
So from this moment on
I shan't shut my mouth
And I'll live with the sin
