There's A Nail In The Bottom Of My Shoe. - Poem by Edwina Reizer
There's a nail in the bottom of my shoe.
But it's not as painful as losing you.
There's a splinter embedded in my skin.
But it's not as painful as the place I'm in.
*** Can you take my pain away?
Does it have to stay?
Can you take this pain away from me?
There's an echo in the night ringing in my ear.
But it's not as painful as not having you near.
There's a scar I see that's on my knee.
But it's not as painful as the rest of me.
REPEAT *** followed by Hum and piano
There's a black cloud hanging over my head.
But it's not as painful as my bed.
There's an eyelash caught inside my eye.
But it's not as painful as saying goodbye.
You can take my pain away.
It doesn't have to stay.
Just come on home and be with me
and never will I say
That there's a black cloud over my head
or it's painful now in my bed,
or there's an eyelash caught inside my eye.
Nothing's painful now ‘cause we don't say goodbye.
