Lyrics

It Still Hurts

Written By: Rick Malis

It Still Hurts

It still hurts, I can’t lie
When I see you pass me by
With that cold indifferent stare
Like you don’t see me standing there
Baby it still hurts
Baby it still hurts

I remember every kiss
Like a tattoo, like a fist
Every heartache, every lie
Still tears me up inside
Baby it still hurts
Baby it still hurts

Bridge

They say time heals all wounds
Why can’t it heal me
Every time I see you face
I lose a piece of me

I still want you sad but true
It’s so hopeless but I still do
And what’s worse, I think you know
I can’t bear to let you go
Baby it still hurts
Baby it still hurts

They say time heals all wounds
Why can’t it heal me
Every time I see you face
I lose a piece of me

I still want you sad but true
It’s so hopeless but I still do
And what’s worse, I think you know
I can’t bear to let you go
Baby it still hurts
Baby it still hurts
