1. If it hurts


It was a night so dark
you couldn’t see the whites of your eyes in that mirror where you weep
it was a day so bright
you were blind to the result of that ego that you keep
you’re a paranoid freak and you make me so weak
but it doesn't make me feel any stronger saying it out loud
you never let me speak i got a mind full of things i wish i could have said
but i'll just leave them in the dark

well it wasn’t my idea and this probably makes me bitter
even though i feel better now, i should have known better
my high hopes fell, fell to the ground
and my faith in you is gone, i thought i knew you better
now there’s just one thing that you need to know about me
if it hurts i'll write a song about it.

Right about the same time
your treating me unkind I’m losing my mind
you’re not the only one
who's falling apart, in this humble life
it might be I, I'm losing one i love
and i don't know how to deal with this failure to cope
now you’re asking me to forgive you, but it can't
not right now


i want so bad, to write a happy song
so why is it that, the sad ones always come
so easy

If it hurts x4

If it hurts I’ll write a song about it
