World of Pain

about

I wrote "World of Pain" not long after the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington DC.

lyrics

Why live in a world so full of sorrow
why live in a world so full of pain
why love must be begged stole or borrowed
why so many die young and so few remain
so few remain
so few remain
I ain’t got no one to talk to any more
I ain’t got no one who’s gonna stand on my shore
well my howling heart is just longing to be freed
I stay up late every night just to feel it bleed

Why live in a world full of sorrow
oh why live in a world so full of pain
my only fear is to be robbed of tomorrow
my only burdens well they’re too few to name
too few to name
too few to name
I ain’t got no one I can talk to any more
I ain’t got no one who’s gonna stand on my shore
my howling heart is just longing to be freed
I stay up late every night just to feel it bleed...
