Life In The Pain

Album: These Times (2012)
  • Now you're out there with no target
    So your friends become your aim
    But there is no one left around you
    So there is no one left to blame

    And what you don't know, it won't hurt you
    And what you don't know will save you from some pain
    But if I could choose I'd let it hurt you
    'Cause there's something bout life in the pain

    Yeah there's something inside you starting
    Like there's a fight coming your way
    But there'll be no fists you'll be throwing
    Just some words you got to say

    And you'll scream for our repentance
    Or you'll hide behind what's fake
    But there ain't nothing to forgiveness
    And you give as freely as you take

    And what you don't know, it won't hurt you
    And what you don't know will save you from some pain
    But if I could choose I'd let it hurt you
    'Cause there's something bout life in the pain

    And I don't need to know you stories
    Don't need to understand your pain
    'Cause I've been here since the beginning
    And I'll be here the rest of the way
    And I'll be here the rest of the way

    Now you've tried your hand at running
    But don't you try your hand at fate
    'Cause there's a moment to be taken
    But it's right before you break

    And what you don't know, it won't hurt you
    And what you don't know will save you from some pain
    But if I could choose I'd let it hurt you
    'Cause there's something bout life in the pain
    'Cause there's something bout life in the pain
    Is there something bout life in the pain Writer/s: DOUGLAS HAMILTON BROWN
