Heal The Pain

Written by: Laura Breidenthal

The smooth guitar strings lurk into visions
Sweeping sounds and soothing incisions 
The piano marks its day in the light
Each chord of brilliance owning the night

It’s difficult to imagine your kind of life
Emptied of thought I live among strife
So much to do and so little time
But still in a whirl we watch it all fly

And I’ll just walk on by in the cool of day
For there’s no backstage, there’s just today
Before you storm over and wash me away
Surely music will heal the pain
Heal the pain 

Get out of your stupor, don’t run out tonight
I invited you here as a way to be kind
Yesterday we smiled and today we cried 
Break away the nerves and come right inside

And I’ll just walk on by in the cool of day
For there’s no backstage, there’s just today
Before you storm over and wash me away
Surely music will heal the pain

You think I’m the savior—get out of my tide!
I realize that merriment only lives blind
There’s no need to collect the treasures I find
Living moments and making them is all that I’ll try

And I’ll just walk on by in the cool of day
For there’s no backstage, there’s just today
Before you storm over and wash me away
Surely music will heal the pain
Heal the pain

Each chord of mastery owning the night
The piano shines brilliantly in the light
Bursting sounds and effortless incision
The smooth guitar molds its life to your vision
