This Is Gonna Hurt

Album: Fight Or Flight (2012)
  • I've been living for too long
    With a feeling something's wrong
    Like a thorn stuck in my side
    Just out of reach for me to pull it out
    Now the picture's crystal clear
    I can see that the end is near
    We no longer to have pretend
    All things have got to come to an end

    This is gonna hurt
    This is gonna hurt you
    This is gonna hurt you
    More than it hurts me.
    And I don't wanna hurt
    That's why I'm gonna hurt you
    That's why I'm gonna hurt you
    That's how it's gonna be.

    And they say what doesn't kill you
    Well, I'm sure you know the rest
    If you'd shut up for a second
    I could get this off my chest
    Cause I've been though way too much
    And we've grown so out if touch
    Now we can't see eye to eye
    It's time to kiss it goodbye.

    This is gonna hurt
    This is gonna hurt you
    This is gonna hurt you
    More than it hurts me.
    And I don't wanna hurt
    That's why I'm gonna hurt you
    That's why I'm gonna hurt you
    That's how it's gonna be.

    This is gonna hurt you
    That's how it's gonna be
    This is gonna hurt you

    Can't you see the writing on the wall?
    One more step before I end it all.
    Closing my eyes, holding my breath,
    Finish it now, get it over with.
    Can't you see the writing on the wall?
    One more step before I end it all.
    Closing my eyes, holding my breath,
    Finish it now, get it over with.

    This is gonna hurt
    This is gonna hurt you
    This is gonna hurt you
    More than it hurts me.
    And I don't wanna hurt
    That's why I'm gonna hurt you
    That's why I'm gonna hurt you
    That's how it's gonna be. Writer/s: CHRIS LIGHT HESSE, DANIEL B. ESTRIN, DOUGLAS SEAN ROBB
