Kiss Away the Pain (Again)

about

This is a brand-new recording of one of the highlights from our 2007 album "Too Many Goodbyes". The song has been completely re-arranged into an even more emotional song!

Everything is newly recorded, including the vocals, which were performed by Eric Castiglia. He really imparts the emotional content in a way that simply delivers.

This was originally going to be an acoustic treatment (I have one already, featuring Ken), but decided to go in the opposite direction!

Hope you enjoy it.

lyrics

How well I recall that day in the spring
You stood on the hill in that dress
The sun was as bright as your beauty, your smile
And I stood there no longer alone

We walked and talked for hours
But it passed by like minutes of the day
The feelings I felt then
I'm still feeling now
Some things can never change
No matter how hard you try

It's times like these
When all the worlds asleep
That I close my eyes and drift away with you
In my dreams, I am strong
I say the right things, and I’m never wrong
But it's only a dream
Yes, only a dream

I close my eyes and I am taken back
To the time of my life
To the dreams of my youth
Some things can't be repaired once broken
And it's my heart that now lies in tatters

It's times like these
When all the worlds asleep
That I close my eyes and drift away with you
In my dreams, I am strong
I say the right things, and I’m never wrong
But it's only a dream
Yes, only a dream

All the words that we left unspoken
Seem to come to life when I think of that day
So much pleasure gave so much pain
It would seem the feelings you had for me
Would never be felt again

Is this the price of loving you too much?
Twist the knife and kick the gaping wound
Where once you kissed away the pain
You laugh at the pieces and stab me once again

It's times like these
When all the worlds asleep
That I close my eyes and drift away with you
In my dreams, I am strong
I say the right things, and I’m never wrong
But it's only a dream
Yes, only a dream
