did i really think i knew pain?

current struggle.

did i really think i knew pain?

verse one
did i really think i had it hard?
did i really think i was hurting?
did i really think i deserved love?

did i really think i had it hard?
did i really think i was deserving?
did i really think enough?

chorus
look all around me at the people i see
everyone's trying so hard to believe
that maybe, maybe we can make it through

but then i see myself and how i complain
come on, did i really, did i really think i knew pain
 or maybe i made it up so i could be held, too

verse two
did i really need to cry like that?
did i really have a need for tears?
or maybe i wanted undeserved care...

did i really need to cry like that?
did i really need someone near?
maybe i just thought i needed someone there!

chorus
look all around me at the people i see
everyone's trying so hard to believe
that maybe, maybe we can make it through

but then i see myself and how i complain
come on, did i really, did i really think i knew pain
 or maybe i made it up so i could be held, too

bridge
i know i shouldn't compare
i know i shouldn't hold myself to nonexistent standards
but do i really deserve help
do i really deserve love
have i gone through enough pain to claim to be hurt?

chorus
look all around me at the people i see
everyone's trying so hard to believe
that maybe, maybe we can make it through

but then i see myself and how i complain
come on, did i really, did i really think i knew pain
 or maybe i made it up so i could be held, too

The End
