Tell you 'bout a man I borrowed twenty-six cents from
I wanted to ask what the extra penny is for
I needed a quarter for the next two minutes with you
He said, "I was making a wish but I've been listening, I think you need it more"
And it's the same damn thing
The stuff you put me through
I walked across a bridge and almost right past a suicide
You could say I'm a hero depending on the light that you put me in
What changed her mind was when I took the time to tell her 'bout you and me
She heard my tale and climbed off the rail and then she tried to push me in
And it's the same damn thing (Thing)
I hope I'm doing it to you
And it sounds like thunder and it feels like rain
But I've been so thirsty that I can't explain
You feel me and grow me
And no one has known me to complain
For you are my blessed pain, you are my blessed pain

Girls need candy and flowers and monogamy from someone who makes them feel worthwhile
Boys need food and five minutes with his right hand free
But only the girl gonna make him smile
And it's the same damn thing (Thing)
The stuff you put me through
And it sounds like thunder and it feels like rain
But I've been so thirsty, that I can't explain
You feel me and grow me
And no one has known me to complain
For you are my blessed pain, blessed pain

Girls need shoes and attention and monogamy from someone who makes them feel worthwhile (Makes them feel worthwhile)
Boys need food and basically five minutes with his right hand free
But only the girl gonna make him smile (But only the girl gonna make him smile)
And it's the same damn thing (Thing)
I hope I'm doing it to you
And it sounds like thunder and it feels like rain
But I've been so thirsty that I can't explain
You feel me and grow me
And no one has known me to complain
You are my blessed pain, you are my blessed pain (You are my blessed pain)
My, my blessed pain (You are my blessed pain), my blessed pain
My blessed, blessed pain (You are my blessed pain), my blessed pain
