Rascal Flatts – Let It Hurt lyrics

7: 42 in the morning, 8 seconds before it all sinks in.
Put your best face on for the world. Fake another smile and just pretend.
But you're just puttin' off the pain, nothing's ever really gonna change.

Chorus:

So let it hurt, let it be, let it take you right down to your knees, let it
Burn to the worst degree
May not be what you want, but it's what you need
Sometimes the only way around it, is to let love do it's work. And let it
Hurt. Yeah, let it hurt.

3: 28 in the morning. Counting up the spaces between the rain.
You're getting use to the rocks at the bottom, your heart goes numb but the
Lonely stays the same.
And that's price your bound to pay, and there's
Really nothing anyone can say. Oh there's only just one way

Chorus

So let it hurt, let it be, let it take you right down to your knees, let it
Burn to the worst degree
May not be what you want, but it's what you need
Sometimes the only way around it, is to let love do it's work. So go on,
Yeah let it hurt.

You might just find your better for it, when you let go and you learn,
Let it hurt, let it bleed
Let it take you right done to your knees

Ohhhh... Sometimes the only way around it, is to let love do it's work (let love do it's work) so go on (go on) and let it hurt, Oh let it burn.

7: 42 in the morning, 8 seconds before it all sinks in...

    My take on this song is that while you're going through a tough time, for me, Anxiety, and Depression, and Major cutting along with an eating disorder, is that it takes a lot of time for these type of things to heal, if they even could. My self-harming has stopped but not the anxiety or depression or eating disorders. It says to let it hurt, to let these things happen, and to let it bleed, those are the correct words, that while cutting is a horrible thing to do, it may help you get though something for the time being. This song says to me that many of us fake smiles everyday, yes we do many things that are not benefiting our health positively but they are part of a recovery, in the ultimate end.

    This song means alot to me as well. The love of my life was having an affair that I found out about that lasted over 2 years. We have a son together and I come from a broken family so I'm doing all I can to keep us together. I don't want my boy to have split holidays, or to have step mothers or fathers. It's been 2 years since I found out and It's still hard. All I can do is let it hurt.

    I lost my husband of 35 years in an explosion in march 2012. When I first heard this song it has so much meaning for me. I start work at 7: 30 in the morning and I have to fake another smile each day. The hurt is at the bottom of my stomach. It was such a tragic death and he was the love of my life. We kissed each other goodbye each morning and now I hurt each morning. I don't know when the pain will ever go away. Thank you rascal flatts for a song that has true meaning for me.
