Lyrics

YOUR PAIN WORE YOU IN
Charles Pike and Carlene Thissen, Copyright 2010


At first glance try to remember what you said
Drugs and chance - you're a woman livin' on the edge
Betrayal, regret, you don't know the meaning
Lust for another you're so damn deceiving

Your pain wore you in
The shame it shows your sins
You're lost, you can't keep touch
Still to me, you mean so much

Fear is the flaw that rules them
It is a state that you yourself create
Time stands still, take another pill
Living in awe, so we create law

Your pain wore you in
The shame it shows your sins
You're lost you can't keep touch
Still to me, you mean so much.

You've aged 10 years just to kill your fears
When you let it in, it all begins
For what you've exchanged, Your body has changed
The youth is gone, it doesn't take very long

Your pain, it wore you in
The shame, it shows your sins
You're lost, you can't keep touch
Still to me, you mean so much

My love is why we fight
It's not your right to end your life

Your only shelter is a yellow burning powder
You could stop it, I know you have the power
You see memories clouded by years of pain
It turns those thoughts away but you are not the same

Your pain, it wore you in
The shame, it shows your sins
You're lost, you can't keep touch
Still to me, you mean so much
