My pain is reoccurring
My tears are not uncommon
These cuts and scars will never disappear
The hole in my heart will never heal
True, my life still has love
True, my life still has happiness
True, at least once a day I can muster a smile and laugh
and be lightly whole for a few seconds
But, every time I smile, laugh, love, or happy…
is another smile or laugh I'll have to endure in pain later
Oh, this life…
Never will it come without pain
Never will it come without hurt
Never will it come without unhappiness
Never will it come without a price on love
Tell me, dear Lord in heaven
Why must we feel pain?
Why must we hurt?
Why must we be unhappy?
Why must we be unable to obtain love?
Pity the child born next
Wish him luck on this journey of hardships
Hope he does not give up and take the way out of this life
everyone wishes to take but only quitters do
Maybe he will be stronger than I
I hope he'll see the silver lining in the sky,
And not the red lining on his cuts and scars
If God willing I will guide him on the right path
I will guide him, I will
All I have to do now, is quit
