I Create My Pain  

My world didn’t look the same this morning, ya see the colors all had changed

Rearranged and started to fade to grey

It took everything I had just to stand up, out of bed, because I had no will

It could kill me just to be

 

But I always had a friend in you watching out for me

Nothing seems to change

The love I feel rushes out of you and washes over me

But I’m standing in the rain.

Because I create my pain

 

My life didn’t mean that much this morning, the history all had changed

Bent to blame the man I used to be

It took everything I had just to speak up and be heard, a self without a tie

So far behind, in just being me

 

But I always had a friend in you watching out for me

Nothing seems to change

And the love I feel rushes out of you and washes over me

But I’m standing in the rain.

Because I create my pain

 

And when the time comes and you think we both have lost it

And reality sets in this love is just shy of caustic

Pause and reflect on a very simple truth

My heart belongs to you

 

You’ll always have a friend in me watching over you

Regardless of life’s change

the love we feel pours out of me and is here for you

To shield you from the rain

Because I create the pain
