"Get Off On The Pain" as written by Bill Luther, Brett James and Justin Weaver....
I don't know why I love women
That love to do me wrong
I don't know why my life sounds like
A heart broke country song
I ain't really happy
Unless the sky starts driving rain
Maybe I just get off on the pain

And my whole life I been picking fights
There ain't no way to win
There's a hundred scars I should have run away
Now tattooed on my skin
There's a side of me that just won't stop
Dancin' in the flame
Maybe I just get off on the pain

'Cause I love the long shot
And the left out lost causes
And hanging out in the back of the pack with the dark horses
I ride the wrong road just as fast as I can
God knows there's no one else to blame
Sometimes I think I get off on the pain

I wake up every morning, a thousand miles from home
Praying for forgiveness
For this aching in my bones
It would be so easy
To find a better way
Oh but I know I'll never change

'Cause I love the long shot
And the left out lost causes
Hanging out in the back of the pack with the dark horses
I ride the wrong road just as fast as I can
God knows there's no one else to blame
Sometimes I think I get off on the pain

'Cause I love the long shot
And the left out lost causes
Hanging out in the back of the pack with the dark horses
I ride the wrong road just as fast as I can
God knows there's no one else to blame
I know I'm the only one to blame
Sometimes I think I get off on the pain

    General CommentThis song is me. I don't know why I try and go for girls out of my league or pick fights I'll never win or try an do things a I can't. But maybe it's the pain from failure that I love, not the things themselves.

    General CommentProbably one of the edgiest heartache songs I've heard. I love the music and singing, it really comes together to something bigger than the sum of its parts. It's the very definition of country rock. Probably my favorite song from this artist.
