Song title: Sure can feel the pain

Sure can feel the pain

River wide, mountain so high
Rainbows break across the Southern sky
Ocean so vast it floods the eye
Moving so fast
It's hard to know of you're dead or if still alive
Yeah, there's something so good
Like nothing before you ever had
And a love's so good
That you value love so bad

Hair's so long, eyes sould deep
Heart on fire even when I'm asleep
Sun's so bright it blinds me for the light
No I cannot make it
Without another night
Searchin' for a blind man
Lost without his dog or his cane
Feeling like a blind man
I can't see what's hurtin' me
But I sure can feel the pain, so bad

River deep, valley so low
Now when the sun passes over
You dont even leave a shadow
A bottomless pit
Out of which i cannot climb
And I get so selfish
I want it all to be mine, yeah
I'm a blind man
Lost without his dog, or without his cane
And I can't even see what's hurtin' me so bad
But I sure can feel the pain

Big black rooster, open your eyes
Look at the country
Before you waste it blind
Freedom bells ringing
And animals have learned to speak
I am still trying to learn how to fly, yeah
I'm like a blind man
Lost without his dog or his cane
I can't even see whats hurtin' me, all I know
But I sure can feel the pain
