“Sometimes the Pleasure is the Pain” – by Kent Mayhew (1999)

Thanks but I can’t get numb yet
‘Cause I still need my pain
It guides me like a lighthouse
Through the stormy nights
And it’s a much a part of me as where I’ve been

Chorus:
But it’s killing me to get through this
But I’m getting better just the same
Tell me how twisted is this
Sometimes I think the pleasure is the pain

Thanks but I’ll pass on your free ride
The satisfaction achieved would be in vain
And I want to own the courage
To get back on my feet
And I believe it lies within the climb between

Chorus:
But it’s killing me to get through this
But I’m getting better just the same
Tell me how twisted is this
Sometimes I think the pleasure is the pain

Thanks but I can’t get numb yet
‘Cause I still need my pain
I get my kicks from the expressions on their face
When I say no to that scene

Chorus:
But it’s killing me to get through this
But I’m getting better just the same
Tell me how twisted is this
Sometimes I think the pleasure is the pain
Sometimes I think the pleasure is the pain
