--dedicated to my friend Laura Breidenthal... I really wish I could be there for you more...

Pain is here
Pain is there
Pain is in the mind
Pain is kind
Pain is cruel
Makes us a fool

Your pain
My pain
our pain
her pain
his pain
their pain

Pain is life
Pain is the edge of the knife
Pain is worry and strife
Pain is knowing I cannot comfort you
Pain is doing all I can do
To try and help anyway

Pain is sorrow
Pain is today, yesterday, and tomorrow
Pain is always and forever
Pain ends never
Pain is the smile on the face
That vanishes without a trace

Your pain...
it's the worst pain
I wish to take your pain
Drown it with the rain
I wish
I wish
Pain does not comply
It remains...a calloused lie
Pain is there
Pain is here

Pain is the worry that tomorrow
Tomorrow will only bring sorrow
Pain is the futile attempt to make that smile appear to you
Pain is knowing it's all to no avail
Pain is know I just fail

Pain is here
Pain is there
Your pain
My pain

Pain are the tears that constantly flow behind the closed eyes
Pain is hoping we never have to say goodbye
Pain is strife
Pain is life
Pain is the series of irrational cuts on the skin
Pain is the forced stretched fake grin

Pain I see in your eyes
Pain I wish was all a lie
Pain I wish to take away
And allow happiness to stay

Pain is always there
But if I could
I'd take all your pain away...
