ONLY HURTS WHEN I LAUGH

MUSIC BY BRIDE
LYRICS BY DALE THOMPSON

MY MIND WORKS ALL THE TIME IS THAT WHY YOU'RE AFRAID OF ME
OR IS IT MY TATTOOS THAT YOU CAN'T HELP BUT TO SEE
THEY SAY THAT I AM COMPLEX DON'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING I READ
AND SOMETIMES IT IS SO HARD TO EXPLAIN ALL THAT I HAVE SEEN

IT ONLY HURTS WHEN I LAUGH

I DON'T SMILE FOR PICTURES, MY SUCCESS IS OVERDONE
GOD WATCHES OVER ME,YOU KNOW, I'M THE FORTUNATE ONE
GIVE ME WINGS OF ANGELS RISE ABOVE SELF RIGHTEOUSNESS
THERE'S ONLY SO MUCH OF THIS OL' WORLD THAT MY SOUL CAN DIGEST

IT ONLY HURTS WHEN I LAUGH

YOU CAN LOOK A MAN DEAD IN THE EYE
SEE DEEP WITHIN HIS SOUL
YOU CAN WALK A MILE IN HIS SHOES
YOU'LL NEVER KNOW ALL HE KNOWS

MY SONGS AREN'T ALWAYS PRETTY CAUSE THE TRUTH IT SOMETIMES HURTS
AND EVEN THOUGH IT'S PAINFUL YOU KNOW ALL THE WORDS
I'VE LEARNED TO SHUT THE WORLD OUT AND TO LET THE SPIRIT IN
IT'S ONLY WHEN I'M HONEST THAT MIRACLES BEGIN

IT HURTS WHEN I LAUGH
