THE MIRACLE OF PAIN
(AL ROSE - WHEEL SEA MUSIC / ASCAP)


The x-rays were embarrassing
I’ve got nothing left to hide
There’s a dirt road running down my leg
Keeping everything inside
I am guilty to the bone like a skeleton in the rain
I cannot feel anything
That’s the miracle of pain

The x-rays were embarrassing
I’m just like a broken home
It’s a wonder that my food goes down
I am brittle to the bone
My veins are like the highway
Broken shoulders, twisted wrist
My fingers have a dozen joints
That roll into a fist

Every night I breathe a sigh and take the tonic cold
Your love is like the speed of light
You’ve broken hearts and broken molds
You always could see through me
Like some super human girl
You’re as solid as a sheet
You got me covered in this world

The x-rays were embarrassing
They can see right through my skin
It’s golden when the light shines through
Like parchment paper-thin
I tried to put the wall back up alone without a sound
But the x-rays were embarrassing
And the wall came tumbling down
