Steve Smith

Music by Darrell Booth & Lyrics by Steve Simpson
All rights reserved/copyright 1997

 

When it hurts
hurts too much
walk away

When it hurts
hurts too much
walk away

Someone always throws the salt
I've been there and done that
can't bring the horse back

Please pardon the stupid clichés
but sometimes words you know
can soothe the stupidity... of things I can't fix

Don't ask me for my soul
it's too late to fix the irrepairable
resolution is the answer... of time to heal and...
Reliving bullshit... is just what it is...
it's just what it is...

When it hurts
hurts too much
walk away

When it hurts
hurts too much
walk away...
walk away...

The disjointedness of sound... creates the tension
love never dies... it just becomes awkward...
when betrayal happens... betrayal happens...

Reload... spend the time to find...
what is worth killing... what's better to
let walk away

God, I hate stupidity... especially my own
especially when the damage becomes...
irrepairable... irrepairable

Please let me NOT make the same mistake... again
but if I do...
don't let me see the replay
OVER and OVER and OVER
like Steve Smith... like Steve Smith...

When it hurts
hurts too much
walk away

When it hurts
hurts too much
walk away...
walk away...

Our circle... our coven of friends
no longer mean as much to you
as they do to me...

Now you look down and different at them...
does that mean you look the same way
at me?

When it hurts
hurts too much
walk away

When it hurts
hurts too much
walk away...
walk away...

 

 

Note: This song is NOT about hockey! It's not even about poor Steve Smith...
the infamous hockey player who scored the winning goal for the OTHER team
during some championship game! It's possibly about the way he may have felt...
it bears his name.

I love this song... I love these lyrics... I love the whole concept of this song!
The recorded version is seven and a half minutes long... the live version is only
about five minutes long... we haven't sped it up.. just cropped out some
spaces and slow bits... I love both versions.

Read it! If you only read ONE SONG today READ THIS ONE!!!!

Joanne
