Wish You Pain

  • I hope your doubts come like monsters
    And terrorize your dreams
    I hope you feel the lonely hopelessness
    'Cause no one else believes
    I hope you question whether you ever really had a chance at all

    I hope your fear is thick like poison
    It gets into your blood
    I hope you push until you cannot breathe
    And it's still not enough
    I hope you put your life out on the line
    And everybody watches while you fall

    'Cause I love you more than you could know
    And your heart, it grows every time it breaks
    I know that it might sound strange

    But I wish you pain
    Wish you pain
    It's hard to say
    But I wish you pain

    I hope people break their promises
    Leave you in the cold
    I hope they beat your heart to pieces
    Worse than you've ever known
    I hope you finally arrive, only to find you're nowhere close

    I hope you cry and tears come streaming down your face
    I hope this life traps you in more than you thought you could ever take
    I hope the help you want never comes and you do it on your own

    'Cause I love you more than you could know
    And your heart, it grows every time it breaks
    I know that it might sound strange

    But I wish you pain
    Wish you pain
    It's hard to say
    But I wish you pain

    I love you more than you could even know
    Been here before and I just wanna see you grow
    Want you to grow

    'Cause everything that matters most
    That's where it goes by a different name
    I know that it might sound strange

    But I wish you pain
    I wish you pain
    It's hard to say
    Wish you pain

    I love you more than you could even know
    I've been here before and I just wanna see you grow
    Want you to grow Writer/s: Andrew Grammer, Ryan Met, Thomas Meredith
