The War On Drugs – Pain lyrics
[Verse 1]
Go to bed now I can tell
Pain is on the way out now
Look away, a domino falls away

I know it's hard lookin' in
Knowin' that tomorrow you'll be back again
Hang your head and let me in, I'm waitin'
So long

[Verse 2]
I was staring into the light
When I saw you in the distance, I knew that you'd be mine
Am I movin' back in time?
Just standin' still?

I met a man with a broken back
He had a fear in his eyes that I could understand
I can't even shake the pain without breakin'

[Chorus]
I've been pullin' on a wire, but it just won't break
I've been turnin' up the dial, but I hear no sound
I resist what I cannot change
And I wanna find what can't be found

[Verse 3]
I'm aware you're tired and lost
Like a demon in a doorway, waiting to be born
But I'm here all alone, just beggin'

Pull me close and let me hold you in
Give me the deeper understanding of who I am
Yeah, I'm going back again, I'm waiting here

[Chorus]
I'm just pullin' on a wire, but it just won't break
I've been turnin' up a dial, but I hear no sound
I resist what I cannot change, own it in your own way
Yeah, I wanna find what can't be found
