Cure


A Cure for the Pain
Jon Foreman


I'm not sure whyit always goes downhill 
Why broken cisterns never could stay filled 
I've spent ten years singing gravity away 
But the water keeps on falling from the sky 

And here tonight while the stars are blacking out 
With every hope and dream I've ever had in doubt 
I've spent ten years trying to sing these doubts away 
But the water keeps on falling from my eyes 




And heaven knows, heaven knows 
I tried to find a cure for the pain 
Oh my Lord, to suffer like You do 
It would be a lie to run away 

So blood is fire pulsing through our veins 
We're either riders or fools behind the reigns 
I've spent ten years trying to sing it all away 
But the water keeps on falling from my tries

And heaven knows, heaven knows 
I tried to find a cure for the pain 
Oh my Lord, to suffer like You do 
It would be a lie to run away 
A lie to run, it would be a lie 
It would be a lie to run away 

It keeps on falling 
Water keeps on falling from my eyes 

And heaven knows, heaven knows 
I tried to find a cure for the pain 
Oh my Lord, to suffer like You do 
It would be a lie to run away
