This Chronic Pain

he said my pain is chronic
it's killing me every day
and all I want is
to make everything OK
another cup of coffee
another mile to run
doesn't make it better
cause I'm still alone here
hungry for anything

and the time will pass
but love will remain
cause nothing is so sweet as
this chronic pain
one moment you're laughing
and then your eyes fill with rain
and nothing will ever be as sweet as
this chronic pain

he said my life had meaning
somewhere my heart could lay
you could be dreaming
and suddenly things can change
I still hear her whisper
it's for all time
with eyes wide shut
my love is blind
I can hear her calling

and the time will pass
but love will remain
cause nothing is so sweet as
this chronic pain
one moment you're laughing
then it rips your heart again
and nothing could ever be as sweet as
this chronic pain

and I would give anything
just for a place to stand
my own con-fusion
is all that I've ever known
you and I, well...
we're like the shifting sand

he said my pain is chronic
it's killing me every day
and all I want is
to make everything OK

and the time will pass
but love will remain
cause nothing is so sweet as
this chronic pain

and this too shall pass...(in rideout)
