lyrics

In an instant, your statue'd gaze
If I f'ed up, then I'll say, then I'll say it was me
Here I play and seem in merry ways
But in my heart, in my heart I am mourning with ache and sigh
And sighs resound through heartless ground
O! my earth is emptied of love and life

It's supposed to hurt,
That's the point

I remember a dawning day
I walked up and I said, and I said, "Get close to me"
In the dizzy desert, we sweat our prayers
And in my heart, I felt the spark, in my heart there came the morning, I'm on the rise
Now sighs resound through heartless ground
O! my earth is emptied of love and life
And there it stays until my cause is found
or till I feel the sting of your lovely knife

It's supposed to hurt,
That's the point

O alas, your ashen face
If you ever held our warm words dear
Don't let one cross steal all our days
Were it not for this, to you I would be near
But if you want it without redress
Then you gotta know your end is stuck in endlessness

It's supposed to hurt,
That's the point
