Song Description

inspirational, precious, easy listening pop or contemporary folk song...depending on how it was produced. This version available to you is unproduced. This song was recorded with Ellyn performing solo with her acoustic guitar

Story Behind the Song

Thi song is about not being so self-involved in ones' own pain and problems that you become blind to the heartache of others. Rising above your own troubles to reach out and help somebody else in need.

Lyrics

I ain't no virgin when it comes to heartache
So this is really nothing new
But baby what ya done this time
Has really got me blue
And here I am down on my knees
An I'm begging please

Help me see through my pain
Long enough to feel somebody elses
Let me walk through my rain
Strong enough to hold somebody else up
And give me strength not to act
The way that I despise
Give me strength not to close my eyes

They said that Trudy was tutie fruity
oh they said she'd gone insane
She ate your garbage and she begged for money
And she died out in the rain
An when she went to sleep that night
The church walls heard her say
What did they mean when they told me
everything was gonna be o.k.

Help us see through our pain
Long enough to feel somebody elses
Help us walk through our rain
Strong enough to hold somebody else up
And give us strength not to act
The way that we despise
Give us strength not to close our eyes

My friend is dying
I saw him lying in his bed just yesterday
There's no denying
That he'd been crying
And I wished that I could say
They found a cure and it's for sure now
You're gonna be o.k.
You fought the war for everyone
And honey now you're gettin' paid

Oh - wished I could say

Help us see through our pain
Long enough to feel somebody elses
Help us walk through our rain
Strong enough to hold somebody else up
And give us strength not to act
The way that we despise
Give us strength not to close our eyes
Give us strength not to close our eyes
