Happiness, its been no friend to me
But forever after aint what its all cracked up to be
Yeah, I had a taste, you were my fantasy
But I lost my faith when I hit reality
I dont need no guru to tell me what to do
When your feeling like a headline on
Yesterdays news

Come on, come on, come on
Give me something for the pain
Give me something for the blues
Give me something for the pain when
I feel Ive been danglin from a hang-mans noose
Give me something I can use
To get me through the night
Make me feel all right,
Something like you

Loneliness has found a home in me
My suitcase and guitar are my only family
Ive tried to need someone, like they needed me
I opened up my heart, but all I did was bleed
I dont need no lover, just to get screwed
They dont make a bandage, thats going to cover my bruise

Come on, come on, come on
Give me something for the pain
Give me something for the blues
Give me something for the pain when
I feel Ive been danglin from a hang-mans noose
Give me something I can use
To get me through the night
Make me feel all right,
Something like you

Pull me under (help Im falling)
Run through my veins (night is calling)
To a place (feels like Im flying)
Where I feel no pain (christ Im dying)
Be the pillow under my head
Cover me when Im in your bed
Take me higher than Ive ever been
Take me down and back again
Come to me, be my disguise
Open your coat, let me crawl inside
Come on, come on, come on

Come on, come on, come on
Give me something for the pain
Give me something for the blues
Give me something for the pain when
I feel Ive been danglin from a hang-mans noose
Give me something I can use
To get me through the night
Make me feel all right,
Something like you
