Sweet Pain

Music & Lyrics: John Popper


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

And 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 wondery 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

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 hot it could be


And isn't it a crime?

Was it more than they could bear?

You know they did not even care

At all 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 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

And 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

Thinking back, the truth may be

I've been unaware but I've been living it all along


And it didn't cost a dime

And 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
