Lyrics

Temporary Pain (Lyrics & Music by Steve Laurie: 7/23/98)

Sitting on a shelf, waiting for a sign
That I’m not losing my mind
Little broken cup, no one to fill me up
Now I’m just falling to the floor

Shattered at Your feet, my heart has lost its beat
Lonely, scattered fractures of my heart
Blowing’ in the wind, into the desert again
No water, sun behind the clouds

I hope it’s temporary pain for extraordinary gain
Cause I feel just like I’m going down the drain
I hope it’s temporary pain for extraordinary gain
Lord don’t let my life and prayers be all in vain

Walkin’ on a wire, blind-folded over the fire
I feel the flames beneath my feet
Like a dried up well, sitting’ waiting for a fill
Oh let the rains pour down on me

Crying’ in the night, rejected and contrite
Numb from the days without her love
In my despair, oh God I know You care
I’ve got nothing left, please hold me up

I hope it’s temporary pain for extraordinary gain
Cause I feel just like I’m going down the drain
I hope it’s temporary pain for extraordinary gain
Lord don’t let my life and prayers be all in vain

Sitting on a shelf, waiting for a sign
That I’m not losing my mind
