So Much Pain

SO MUCH PAIN - I want to cry
SO MUCH PAIN - I want to die
SO MUCH PAIN - Why no goodbye?
SO MUCH PAIN - I need to scream
SO MUCH PAIN - It is extreme
SO MUCH PAIN - Up my bloodstream
SO MUCH PAIN - Is this a dream!

Yes! I feel so much pain
It hurts, It hurts and it hurts

I loved you as I hold your hand
I wish you can see and understand
Open your eyes I command
Don't leave me I demand

Yes! I feel so much pain
It hurts, It hurts and it hurts

But it is too late!
To set things straight
Too late to reverse the hate
Too late to descend upon faith

My tears will flow carelessly no more
Hope cannot restore what I had before
My heart is broken beyond pieces of broken pieces
Left now are only souvenirs of unforgettable kisses

How can I live this life again?
Like a passing wind you've made your exit
I bow my head to the ground in defeat
So much pain has once more overwhelmed me again
