SOMETIMES THE RIGHT CURE
TAKES A LITTLE MORE PAIN

I tried to save them
But no one seemed to care
I've been robbed by men in need
I've been robbed by millionaires
And I earned my anger
Always playing dumb and meek
Always turning the other cheek
Til I was beat up

Sometimes the right cure takes a little more pain
Sometimes they help you to your feet
Just to kick you down again, yeah
Sometimes the right cure takes a little more pain
Sometimes it takes a lot more pain

I get nostalgic
Every time I hear that song
For a past that isn't mine
And a chance that's long gone
You wake up on that big stage
And you don't feel like a star
It's just sad girls in bars
That wont stop talking

Sometimes the right cure takes a little more pain
Sometimes you gotta bloody your knuckles
To get out of the fight you're in, yeah
Sometimes the right cure takes a little more pain
Sometimes it takes a lot more pain

And late at night
The wind rushes through her bones
I hold her tight, pile blankets but she's still cold
I say,
The future's gonna barge right in with
Demands we can't foresee
Ah but our love is strong so we don't
Always have to be, baby

Sometimes the right cure takes a little more pain
Yeah nobody falls in love
You gotta climb it day by day, yeah
Sometimes the right cure takes a little more pain
Sometimes it takes a lot more
Sometimes it takes a whole lot more
Sometimes it takes a little,
More pain
