Verse 1
I went on thinkin
everything was perfect
that was until I
was hit with the truth

Chorus
I loved her
with all my heart
but pain is all i got
love and pain
dont you understand
work hand in hand

Verse 2
she said shed been thinkin
she had to grow up
didnt have time for games
shed had enough

Verse 3
she said sry baby
i cant handle this now
i said i can help you sweetie
you just have to show me how

(Chorus)

Verse4
I went through the days
just wonderin why
and I found myself
ready to cry

(Chorus)

Bridge
But now that its over
I'm feelin fine
livin my life
one day at a time

(Chorus)
#3
really good job, but i dont understand a couple things.

in the chorus you say,
Don't you understand
Work hand in hand

what is the meaning of those 2 lines? are you asking her to compromise with you so you can stay together?

EDIT: i love the bridge, its a great turnaround for the song. You realize its time to move on and live your life.

#5
Chorus
I loved her
with all my heart
but pain is all i got
love and pain
dont you understand
work hand in hand

its all well and fine but i would personally change two of the lines around so it goes

dont you understand love and pain go hand in hand

to me it flows better that way, when i hum it in my head theres something about the flow that doesnt work

Verse 1
I went on thinkin
everything was perfect
that was until I
was hit with the truth
not a bad start.....

Chorus
I loved her
with all my heart
but pain is all i got
love and pain
dont you understand
work hand in hand
i don't really understand the phrasing of the last few lines here, what exactly they're supposed to mean

Verse 2
she said shed been thinkin
she had to grow up
didnt have time for games
shed had enough
another solid verse, nothing special, but nothing terrible

Verse 3
she said sry baby
i cant handle this now
i said i can help you sweetie
you just have to show me how
another average verse

(Chorus)

Verse4
I went through the days
just wonderin why
and I found myself
ready to cry
i really think you could do better than this here

(Chorus)

Bridge
But now that its over
I'm feelin fine
livin my life
one day at a time
nothing really to say here
(Chorus)


i don't really know what to say on this one, you have a solid complete song and i give props on that, but the lyrics were pretty bland, nothing really stood out at all in even the least bit, but i commend you for doing your thing man it was decent just pretty generic

take a look at mine and lemme know what u think?
much appreciated
