"Pain" as written by and James Christopher/burch Adkins....
I don't feel the way I've ever felt
I know
I'm gonna smile and not get worried
I try but it shows

Anyone can make what I have built
And better now
Anyone can find the same white pills
It takes my pain away

It's a lie A kiss with opened eyes
And she's not breathing back
Anything but bother me
(It takes my pain away)
Nevermind these are horrid times
Oh oh oh
I can't let it bother me

I never thought I'd walk away from you
I did
But it's a false sense of accomplishment
Every time time I quit

Anyone can see my every flaw
It isn't hard
Anyone can say they're above this all
It takes my pain away

It's a lie A kiss with opened eyes
And she's not breathing back
Anything but bother me
(It takes my pain away)
Nevermind these are horrid times
Oh oh oh
I can't let it bother me

I can't let it bother me
It takes my pain away

It's a lie A kiss with opened eyes
And she's not breathing back
Anything but bother me
(It takes my pain away)
Nevermind these are horrid times
Oh oh oh
I can't let it bother me
It takes my pain
It takes my pain
It takes my pain away

    General CommentI love this song too, but can I suggest a correction to the lyrics posted above. To me, it sounds like:
    "It's a lie, A kiss with opened eyes
    And she's not breathing back
    Anything but bother me
    (It takes my pain away)
    Nevermind, these are horrid times
    Oh, oh, oh
    I can't let it bother me"

    should read:
    "...Nevermind, these are hurried times
    Oh, oh, oh
    I can't let it bother me"

    It's like the speed, busyness and complexity of the narrator's life are being used as an excuse, and they are temporarily dismissing their fears... Not letting it bother them. I'd welcome anyone else's thoughts?
