Bring on the pain

Bring on the heartache

My heart is weak but will not break

It is open and willing but you will not take

You say ‘I love you’

I say ‘You too ..’

Go on your way

For I am afraid of what else I might say

Bring on the pain

Bring on the heartache

Tears are flowing

My heart is sobbing

I refuse to sit around and take the bullshit

I refuse to hear the lies

I refuse to wet these dry eyes

I refuse to feel the pain

I refuse to be the reason you went insane

I refuse the notion I will love again

Bring on the pain

Bring on the heartache

I have opened my eyes to what is greater

I have been able to find that there is something better

Nothing will compare to him

Everything will compare to him

Nothing could ever be worse

Everything could be a curse

Love’s sweet curse will forever haunt me

Love’s sweet surrender will forever taunt me
