Everybody hears
What they want to hear.
It makes them feel so big.
Secrets in their ears.

Gossip, gonna get you down.
You can't stop it flying through the town. Yeah

It's hard to find a friend.
That you can talk to.
You can count on me.
I'll stand beside you.

Gossip, gonna get your down.
You can't stop it flying through the town.

Try so hard to do what's right.
Turn around and it comes to bite.
Woah, gossip.
I talk to you, you can talk to me.
Don't go to them, and speak for me.
Woah, a messenger ain't what it used to be.
Why did you feel the need? It ain't pretty.

I thought that we were tight.
You proved that I was wrong.
It's hard to find a friend
That you can count on.

Gossip, gonna get your down.
You can't stop it flying through the town.

Now it hurts when I see your face.
It's the kind that you can't erase.
Woah, gossip.
I trusted you
And you trusted me.
Now I can't tell you anything.
Woah, a messenger ain't what it used to be.
Why did you do this to me? It ain't pretty.

Gossip,
Gossip, (Flying through the town)
Gossip, (You know it's gonna get you down)
Gossip, (Oh)
Gossip, (It's flying through the town)
Gossip
