Lyrics To Sweet Pain

If Cyrano De Bergerac fell prey to the blades of fifty men
With a heart and a sword he’d drive them back
Perchance to see Roxanne’s eyes light up the sky again

When Beauty kind and full of grace again denied the Beast her hand
The Beast, he turned and hid his face
And tried with all his might and magic to understand

And once upon a time, you know I used to wonder why
You know no one should need to cry
In pain of a heart forbade to fly but you learn to say goodbye
As you whisper beneath a sigh

Sweet pain, can’t you plainly see?
Sweet pain, you know it matters to me
Sweet pain, won’t you make me feel at home?
Sweet pain, don’t you dare leave me alone

Sometimes a life that seems hard to take
Is soothed for a while by an old friend
Leaving a bad need in its wake
Sad, how some friendships never, ever seem to end, never end

Well, all of my heroes up and died
Songs and a dream are left for me
What did them in, not suicide
Just a lengthy friendship and a dream of how it could be

And isn’t it a crime? Was it more than they could bear?
You know they did not even care
And they might have something there but I’m here and I don’t see where
All I hear is their silent prayer

Sweet pain, is it so terribly wrong?
Sweet pain to want to come along
Sweet pain, won’t you make me smile?
Sweet pain, if only for a while

Can you feel what I can feel?
So we can establish that the pain is real
Don’t be afraid and I’ll do the same for you
And we’ll just hang on and we’ll make it, make it through

There’s got to be a reason it works out this way
And there’s something deep inside me
That makes me have to play for you, for you

In no position to give advice
My heart, it spoke and I wrote it down
You know every wisdom has its price
My head up in the stars and my feet planted firmly on the ground

When will I embrace this life, I see
I’ve been wondering for so long
Thinkin’ back, the truth may be
I’ve been unaware but I’ve been livin’ it all along

And it didn’t cost a dime, no, it did not come for free
It just would not let me be but it never conquered me
Just a doorway and a key and I think that we both agree

Sweet pain is sometimes what you need
Sweet pain, it allows the blood to bleed
Sweet pain, from the moment of your birth
Sweet pain, you know it keeps you here on Earth
