World Of Hurt

Album: A Blessing And A Curse (2006)
  • Once upon a time, my advice to you
    Would have been go out
    And find yourself a whore
    But I guess I've grown up
    'Cause I don't give that kind of advice anymore

    Gonna be a world of hurt
    Gonna be a world of hurt
    Gonna be a world of hurt

    I was 27 when I figured out
    That blowing my brains out wasn't the answer
    So I decided, maybe I should find a way
    To make this world work out for me

    And my good friend Paul was 83
    When he told me that, "To love is to feel pain"
    I thought about that a lot back then
    I think about that again and again

    Gonna be a world of hurt
    Gonna be a world of hurt
    Gonna be a world of hurt

    "To love is to feel pain" there ain't no way around it
    The very nature of love is to grieve when it's over
    The secret to a happy ending is knowing when to roll the credits
    Better roll 'em now before something else goes wrong

    No, it's a wonderful world
    If you can put aside the sadness
    And hang on to every ounce of beauty upon you
    Better take the time to know it
    If you feel anything at all

    Gonna be a world of hurt
    Gonna be a world of hurt
    Gonna be a world of hurt

    So if what you have is working for you
    Or you think that it can stand a reasonable chance
    And whatever's broken seems fixable
    And nothing's beyond repair

    If you still think about each other
    And smile before you remember
    How screwed up it's gotten
    Or maybe dream of a time less rotten

    Remember, it ain't too late to take a deep breath
    And throw yourself into it with everything you got
    It's great to be alive

    Gonna be a world of hurt
    Gonna be a world of hurt
    Gonna be a world of hurt
