"Pleasure And Pain" as written by and Charlie Harper....
I'm leaving here on the morning train
And I will never see this world again
I've felt pleasure
And I have felt pain
And I know now
That I can never be the same

How I wonder why the world can be so cold
And if only good die young
Then left with me cruel here to grow old
And I felt pleasure
And I felt pain
And I know now
I can never be the same

And if someday I find my peace of mind
I will share my wealth with all of human kind
I've felt pleasure
And I have felt pain
And I know now
That I can never be the same

So if the sun does shine or rain does fall
I give thanks I've had my sight to see through it all
And I've felt pleasure
And I've felt pain
And I know now
That I can never be the same

    General CommentI think this means that through all of the good times and the bad times, hes just thankful that hes lived through this world. the good times have overcome the bad ones... and hes learned to take both kinds of experiences and get something out of them.

    General CommentDid you know he wrote this song when his grandmother died?
    He says it in a live concert on youtube.
    As for the meaning, I think Socratesjohnson is pretty much right!
