REM: "Everybody Hurts" lyrics 1992

There are some days when I feel that
my heart is very, very heavy and worse,
and I can listen this songs because
it touches the pain that is within.

It doesn´t make me feel better...
I feel wet eyes...and can cry later
when alone...something I didn´t do
until I was in Vietnam and after.

I´m divorced, and was a wonderful and
loving father. I have very little contact
with my children. My daughter hasn´t spoken
to me in over three years.

I feel like someone who has no family,
and in a way it´s true when it´s like
this. I had more of a family in Vietnam
the first time. We cared for each other...
and every loss hurt deeply...even those
we didn´t know.

And, recently, I had one all to human
experience with a wonderful woman that
had there was misunderstanding over...
another relationship where someone
won´t talk.

I can only do what someone told me to
do in Vietnam on my first operation as
I struggled up the base of a mountain,
and one of the veterans in my platoon
came over to me and said..."don´t look
up. Just keep putting one foot in front
of the other.

Sometimes that gets hard...but it´s all
I know. I know I could go through life,
and may have to, without ever seeing my
children, or having a relationship with
them because I have survived so much
already, especially in Vietnam.

It´s not their´s what bitter
women say after separation and divorce.

As for my Brasilian amiga there is a choice
between two people to talk or try to hurt
the other, and in reality each.

I wish all well.

"Everybody Hurts"

When your day is long
And the night, the night is yours alone
When you're sure you've had enough
Of this life, well hang on

Don't let yourself go
'Cause everybody cries
And everybody hurts sometimes

Sometimes everything is wrong
Now it's time to sing along
When your day is night alone (Hold on, hold on)
If you feel like letting go (Hold on)
If you think you've had too much
Of this life, well hang on

Everybody hurts
Take comfort in your friends
Everybody hurts
Don't throw your hand, oh no
Don't throw your hand
If you feel like you're alone
No, no, no, you are not alone

If you're on your own in this life
The days and nights are long
When you think you've had too much of this life to hang on

Well, everybody hurts sometimes
Everybody cries
Everybody hurts sometimes
And everybody hurts sometimes

So hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on
Everybody hurts
