You can’t lie away the pain
But you can hide it for a while
Whitewash covers up a stain
Like a fresh coat of denial

You can’t drink away the pain
It’s such a sad and silly goal
And if you don’t go insane
You might just wash away your soul

You can’t laugh away the pain
By insisting it’s not real
When your dreams go down the drain
You can’t pretend that you don’t feel

I can’t love away your pain
But I can help you through the day
We’ll walk together in the rain
It’s never gonna go away

Richard W. Bray
