Standby For Pain

words and music: D. Snider

PAIN IN MY HEART
PAIN IN MY SOUL
THE KIND OF PAIN I PRAY THAT YOU
WILL NEVER KNOW

THERE AIN'T NO RIGHT
THERE AIN'T NO WRONG
YOU NEVER KNOW JUST WHAT TO FEEL
OR FOR HOW LONG
SAY YOU'RE A SMOOTH OPERATOR
YOU KEEP YOUR MOTOR CLEAN
SOONER OR LATER IT'LL BRING YOU TO YOUR KNEES

WHEN YOU FIND LOVE
STAND BY FOR PAIN
WHEN YOU FIND LOVE
STAND BY FOR PAIN
STAND BY FOR PAIN

YOU NEVER KNOW
WHEN IT WILL CHOOSE
BUT YOU CAN BET THE BANK ON THIS BOY
YOU'RE GONNA LOSE

YOU GOT NO CHOICE
YOU GOT NO SAY
THERE AIN'T A CHANCE IN HELL OF LEAVIN'
YOU BETTER PRAY

SO IF YOU THINK YOU'RE THE EXCEPTION
YOU THINK YOU'LL WALK AWAY
DON'T FALL FOR THAT DECEPTION
EVERYBODY'S GOT TO PLAY

(REPEAT CHORUS)

SAY YOU'RE A SMOOTH OPORATOR
YOU KEEP YOUR MOTOR CLEAN
SOONER OR LATER IT'LL BRING YOU TO YOUR KNEES

(REPEAT CHORUS)
