lyrics

When you wake every morning,
only wanting for the night to come,
with hopes that you can do it better next time,
Take comfort in knowing
that we're all hurting, except for those of us
who haven't had the chance to live enough yet

To live is to love,
to love is to hurt
to hurt is to learn

That you're not alone when your light's gone out,
and all your happiness has turned to doubt,
and you turn and say,
“I don't think I can do this anymore.”
You're not alone when you've lost your fight,
scared to death of a wasted life,
and you're afraid, you're terrified, but you can make it.
You're not alone.

Yeah I've felt it plenty,
that I've wasted my twenties on trying to find
the youth that somehow got left behind
Each day keeps compounding,
the throb in my head resounding, but there's things in life
I know I'm not ready to give up yet

The more I try to fix things wrong with me,
the more I seem to find about myself that I don't like

You're not along when all you see is dark,
the touch of hopelessness has left its mark
that won't seem to fade
But I know we can make it.
You're not alone.

Lift your head and say,
“I know we can make it.”

To live is to love,
is to hurt,
is to learn that.

Val Bauer Portland, Oregon
