flesh wound lyrics – foreigner

it’s four o’ clock in the mornin’
and the daylight’s creepin’ in
and i’m lyin’ awake in bed

and outside my window
the rain’s just pourin’ down
and there’s a pain inside my head, oh yeah

i looked hard into the mirror
took some water in my hands
and threw it on my face

but your memory won’t fade away
i see you everywhere
around this empty sp*ce

this night’s too long, fadin’ fast
i tell myself, this pain won’t last

it’s just a flesh wound
missin’ my heart but it still cuts deep
nothin’ but a flesh wound, yeah
it tore me apart and i still can’t sleep

you know you really did it well
now i’m lyin’ on a bed of nails
but it’s nothin’ but a flesh wound

better pull myself together
gotta hold my head up high
that’s what i’ve got to do

no damage done
but deep inside my heart
who am i tryin’ to fool

it’s over now, it’s all in the past
i tell myself, this pain won’t last

it’s just a flesh wound
missin, my heart but it still cuts deep
nothin’ but a flesh wound, oh
it tore me apart and i still can’t sleep, no, no

i’ve got no choice, i must be strong
can’t lie here thinkin’ about it all night long
it’s nothin’ but a flesh wound

it’s just a flesh wound
missin’ my heart but it still cuts deep
nothin’ but a flesh wound, oh
and it tore me apart but i still can’t sleep

you know you really did it well
now i’m lyin’ on a bed of nails

it’s just a flesh wound, oh
i got to be strong
it’s just a flesh wound, babe
it tore me apart oh, at last
it’s a flesh wound
nothing but a flesh wound, oh
it cuts me deep, yeah
