Take it For Pain

© Jeffrey Hellman 1991

 

Living in the loving on

Love has come and love has gone

Take a step get stepped upon

Without regret you move along

 

You know you take it for pain

And you pretend that it's a game

Gonna drive you insane

You know you take it for pain

 

Sometimes you live sometimes you don't

Sometimes you tumble, Sometimes you don't

Something inside won't leave you alone

It's with your lies that your life can't cope

 

You know you take it for pain

While you contend that it's a game

Feel the guilt attack your brain

You know you take it for pain

 

The meaning goes down through the window above

Touches the mockery it makes of your love

The sands of the hours are all that you hold

And the light shrinking further from eyes that are closed

 

You know you take it for pain

You're just a pawn inside their game

Happy to know that you insane

You know you take it for pain
