[J.Loren]
The world it just ain't right
It keeps me up at night
A good man's paralyzed
He's everything to me,
What else could he be?
He paid for all we do
He paid for all we get
Just try not to forget,
If it hasn't happened yet

[Shaun Morgan]
A gambler pays his dues
A gambler pays his debts,
Placed upon a bet,
A brand new red corvette
But he just lost Juliet
He paid for all he'd do
He paid for all he'd get
And how could I forget,
When it hasn't happend yet?

[Both]
Would you show me the meaning of love,
So it doesn't affect me much?
What you do unto us,
I never expected,
All my hopes and dreams,
To fall apart at the seams
To fall apart at the seams

[J.Loren]
The kindest man I knew
The kindest man I've seen
Was tied to a machine,
Year tied to a machine,
The kind that make you breathe

[Both]
So could you show me the meaning of love,
'Cause it doesn't affect me much?
What you do unto us,
I never expected,
All my hopes and dreams,
To fall apart at the seams
To fall apart at the seams

[J.Loren]
The world it just ain't right
It keeps me up at night
Try to be satisfied
But I'm still in love with you
But it's not like you want me to

    General CommentAmazing song. I think it's about a good friend of J. Loren who was paralyzed. Also when Shaun sings it's about the same guy who's gambling his money away after his wife left him, not knowing yet what will soon happen to him.

    General CommentI think this song is about yourself. you try to be a good person. A good man's paralyzed the more you try and see things go wrong the less you feel yet your faith in trying to do what is right...He's everything to me... stands for it is everything in me. we all take our chances and now matter how many chances we take its the ones we loose that stand out the most.... those are the ones we remember and when everything blows up from the one bet we shouldnt have bet. we feel alone beg for a second chance we feel like it altered our life so dramaticly a second chance so i would feel what i loss before i lost it. i know now that i loved you i made my mistakes first love is the only love show me the meaning of love because theres no going back to love once is to never love again so after you have lost your first whats the point you will never feel what you did the first time . i will tell you i love you but its not what it was the first time so it doesent affect me much

    General CommentThis song is about J's father. There is a great half hour interview with J and Paul on wjjo.com under podcasts in which they do the acoustic version of this song and discuss the meaning(very rare that they do this). Excellent insight into the mind of J Loren. All hurt fans need to check it out. Keep it up Hurt you guys are simply amazing.
