Pain Became My Friend Today

Pain became my friend today She showed me how to hide She’d been watching from a distance Every tear I cried Pain became my friend today Reached out her hand to me Then pulled me into darkness Introducing misery Pain became my friend today Emptying my heart She’s now my constant companion Tearing me apart Pain became my friend today She isolates my soul Now without her I am nothing In her I’m consoled Pain became my friend today When she saw me kneel down and cry Then she lay down right next to me To kiss my joy good-bye Pain became my friend today She introduced me to the sorrow Who showed me how to dwell in agony And fear the break of tomorrow Pain became my friend today Making my heart cold Pain became my friend today The only hand I hold Written by Shannen Wrass Copyright © 1995 Shannen Wrass.
