Hurt A Long Time

This song is by Jerry Cantrell and appears on the album Boggy Depot (1998).

His hands are clenched
His knuckles white
He got a gun
And gave up the fight

When I found out
I couldn't even cry
Well I am now
And I'm tryin' to figure out why

I'll save it for you
You save me from me
And the hole in my head I can see
Tell her I love her
Tell the kids that I loved them

Oh, it's a bad dream
(I've got only time)
Yeah, it's a bad dream
(I've got only time)
You know it's a bad dream
(I've got only time)
I wish it was a bad dream

I wish it was a bad dream
'Cause it's gonna hurt a long time, yeah

He lies awake
With saddened eyes
Sleeping babies
Keeping him alive

I'll save it for you
You save me from me
And the hole in my head I can see
Tell her I love her
Tell the kids that I loved them

Oh, it's a bad dream
(I've got only time)
Yeah, it's a bad dream
(I've got only time)
You know it's a bad dream
(I've got only time)
I wish it was a bad dream
(I've got only time)

I wish it was a bad dream
'Cause it's gonna hurt a long time, yeah
