The Meaning Of Hurt
 
Lyrics
VERSE
I'd been hurt before, but there you were
Angels could not look as good as you
I was totally amazed at the way that my love grew
The whole next year was like a total blur

VERSE
I gave myself to you without reserve
There was nothing I would not do for you
But in the path of love stood an evil I never knew
And the love we had could not be preserved

VERSE
No, you were not the girl you seemed to be
But you were more than just a lesson learned
Now this is the hell of my own choice in which I burn
By choosing to believe you could love me

BRIDGE
If you can't give yourself completely to love
The meaning of hurt you'll never know
If you could know the meaning of hurt
We might still be in love

VERSE
Sometimes it can be hard to face the truth
Why was I so easy to deceive?
Wanting you so bad made love so easy to believe
But believe me now, I'll be leaving you

RIDE

VERSE
Love and hurt are more than just mere words
They're a story words can never tell
So until you know the sorrow of heaven becoming hell
You can't know the meaning of hurt

TAG
Oh, no, you can't know the meaning of hurt

Description
Short Song Description:
If a person cannot give themselves completely to love, then when the "love" falls apart, that person will not understand what happened. She never really connected and that's a sadness.
Long Song Description:
If a person cannot give themselves completely to love, then when the "love" falls apart, that person will not understand what happened. In other words, if you can't love, you can't hurt when it's over. Very sophisticated hook on the part of my co-writer.
Story Behind the Song:
No back story. Just pure craft.
