or
Drive-By Truckers

Once upon a time, my advice to you
Would have been go out
And find yourself a whore
But I guess I've grown up
'Cause I don't give that kind of advice anymore

Gonna be a world of hurt
Gonna be a world of hurt
Gonna be a world of hurt

I was 27 when I figured out
That blowing my brains out wasn't the answer
So I decided, maybe I should find a way
To make this world work out for me

And my good friend Paul was 83
When he told me that, "To love is to feel pain"
I thought about that a lot back then
I think about that again and again

Gonna be a world of hurt
Gonna be a world of hurt
Gonna be a world of hurt

"To love is to feel pain" there ain't no way around it
The very nature of love is to grieve when it's over
The secret to a happy ending is knowing when to roll the credits
Better roll 'em now before something else goes wrong

No, it's a wonderful world
If you can put aside the sadness
And hang on to every ounce of beauty upon you
Better take the time to know it
If you feel anything at all

Gonna be a world of hurt
Gonna be a world of hurt
Gonna be a world of hurt

So if what you have is working for you
Or you think that it can stand a reasonable chance
And whatever's broken seems fixable
And nothing's beyond repair

If you still think about each other
And smile before you remember
How screwed up it's gotten
Or maybe dream of a time less rotten

Remember, it ain't too late to take a deep breath
And throw yourself into it with everything you got
It's great to be alive

Gonna be a world of hurt
Gonna be a world of hurt
Gonna be a world of hurt
