i lived in constant fear
too much of  this life
fleeting glimpses
still come and go

i recognize it
but it’s unfamiliar
i remember feeling it
but not what it felt like

sorrow was once
my most loyal companion
in reality i was alone
though i clung to my illusions

i recognize it
but it’s unfamiliar
i remember feeling it
but not what it felt like

there are wisps of  anger,
shame and loss behind my eyes;
a faint taste of  pain
lingers on my tongue

i recognize them
but they’re unfamiliar
i remember feeling them
but not what they felt like

“The Pain is Gone”   Black Lab

lyrics ~

I’ll take a photograph
Whatever makes you laugh
But come on step out of the rain
You’d hate to catch your death
All the life that you got left
Lit up like a candle on your face

There are words that are fadin’
And I’m trying not to say  ’em
Before they fall into the fog
But every single day, once or twice an hour
The shadow falls away and I see you walking in a straight line

And the pain is gone, the pain is gone
I recognize it but it’s unfamiliar
Now the pain is gone, the pain is gone
I recognize it but it’s unfamiliar

Every year there’s a place
Only you and I go
I didn’t mean to push you
I didn’t mean to laugh when you fell
I didn’t mean to shout when you got hurt
I didn’t mean to argue
I didn’t mean to criticize you
And I’m sorry for saying I didn’t like your skirt

There are demons that are screaming
And I’m trying not to feed them
As I carry water for us through the dirt
I always need you near me, I always need you near me
I don’t know what I’d do if I was walking here without you

And the pain is gone, the pain is gone
I recognize it but it’s unfamiliar
Now the pain is gone, the pain is gone
I recognize it but it’s unfamiliar

Every year there’s a place
Only you and I go
There are things about me
Only you will ever know

And the pain is gone, the pain is gone
I recognize it but it’s unfamiliar
Now the pain is gone, the pain is gone
I recognize it but it’s unfamiliar

Send all my love, send all my love
I recognize it but it’s unfamiliar
Send all my love, send all my love
I recognize it but it’s unfamiliar

There are things about me
Only you will ever know
And this sweet dream will end
And I will wake from this life
Again… and again…
And again… and again… and again

  1. even sorrow and anger are feelings
    and once we are numb and no longer feeling
    we miss even them….
