Permanent Hurt

What is that fallin' out of your eyes
What is that rollin' on down your shit
Thunder and lightning from the bloodshot skies
This time its feeling like a permanent hurt

What is that lipstick up on his sleeve
Wheres the forgiveness thats stronger than dirt
Tearin' the words out when you ask him to leave
This time its gonna be a permanent hurt

A permanent hurt, yeah a pemanent hurt
The pain and the memories do the dirty work
Promises broken hearts on red alert
The surface will heal
But its feelin' like a permanent hurt

What were you thinkin when you fell in love
What were you thinkin in that little black skirt
Bet you a rainbow you werent thinkin of
Suffin' your heels up on a permanent hurt

A permanent hurt, yeah a pemanent hurt
The pain and the memories do the dirty work
Promises broken hearts on red alert
The surface will heal
But its feelin' like a permanent hurt

It's all temporary like the big book tells
Ashes to ashes, baby dirt to dirt
Something gets scary
Someone runs like hell
Somebody winds up with a permanent hurt

A permanent hurt, yeah a pemanent hurt
The pain and the memories do the dirty work
Promises broken hearts on red alert
The surface will heal
But it's feeling like a permanent hurt
