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

 

She's 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

 

Saw me kneel down and cry

 

Then she lay down right next to me

 

Kissed my joy good-bye

 

 

 

Pain became my friend today

 

Aquainted me with sorrow

 

Who showed me how to dwell in agony

 

And fear the break of tomorrow

 

 

 

Pain became my friend today

 

She's making my heart cold

 

Pain became my friend today

 

The only hand I hold
