Happiness, it's been no friend to me
But forever after ain't what it's all cracked up to be
Yeah, I had a taste, you were my fantasy
But I almost lost my faith when I hit reality
I don't need no Guru to tell me what to do
When your feeling like a headline on yesterday's news

Come on, come on, come on
Give me something for the pain
Give me something for the blues
Give me something for the pain
When I feel I've been danglin' from a hang-man's noose
Give me shelter from the rain
Give me something I can use
To get me through the night
Make me feel all right
Something like you, come on, come on, come on

Loneliness has found a home in me
My suitcase and guitar are my only family
I've tried to need someone, like they needed me
But I opened up my heart, but all I did was bleed
I don't need no lover, just to get screwed, oh yeah
They don't make no band-aide that's gonna to cover my bruise

Come on, come on, come on
Give me something for the pain
Give me something for the blues
Give me something for the pain
When I feel I've been danglin' from a hang-man's noose
Give me shelter from the rain
Give me something I can use
To get me through the night
Make me feel all right
Something like you, come on, come on, come on

Pull me under (Help I'm falling)
Run through my veins (Night is calling)
To a place (Feels like I'm flying)
Where I feel no pain (Christ I'm dying)
Be the pillow under my head
Cover me when I'm in your bed
Take me higher than I've ever been
Take me down and back again
Come to me, be my disguise
Open your coat, let me crawl inside
Come on, come on, come on

Come on, come on, come on
Give me something for the pain
Give me something for the blues
Give me something for the pain
When I feel I've been danglin' from a hang-man's noose
Give me shelter from the rain
Give me something I can use
To get me through the night
Make me feel all right
Something like you

Give me something for the pain
Give me something the blues
Give me something for the pain
When I feel I've been danglin' from a hang-man's noose
Give me shelter from the rain
Give me something I can use
To get me through the night
Make me feel all right
Something like you
Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on

Give me, give me something for the pain
Give me, give me something the blues, oh yeah
Give me doctor give me something for the pain, baby
Give me

    General CommentThere is a mistake in the lyrics...

    In the Chorus, the second 'something for the pain...' is actually "Gimme shelter from the rain..."

    General CommentThis song has gotten me by so many times when I've been down. It's a great song about feeling your worst.

    General CommentThis song has some really cool lyrics! It's about being down, but it has a slight happy twist to it...

    Give me something for the pain, give me something I can use
    To get me through the night make me feel alright, something like you

    This song also has really cool part where Richie gets a lead vocal part...

    Pull me under run through my veins
    To a place where I feel no pain
    Be the pillow under my head, cover me when I'm in your bed
    Take me higher than I've ever been
    Take me down and back again
    Come to me be my disguise
    Open your coat and let me crawl inside

    Very cool song! Gets me livened up!!!
