This song was created for Game of Bands round 230 : "Halloween V"

Lyrics:

She (Takes My Pain Away)

Out on a moonless night like tonight
The wind is eating my ego alive, slowly
I never doubted myself
Until I turned into somebody else, and heard them
What they said about me

My mind and feet are racing
My pride and costume trailing in the mud
Like so much spilled blood
(Blood! Blood!)

Blunder leads me down a road
Dark and close

And as these trees close in on me
I hear my name on rustling leaves
A breath of chill passed over my spine
I feel the hand in mine

She walks without a shiver of sound
But she keeps what she found
Oh, she takes my pain away, takes my pain away
Watches until the frigid hour
While you're all alone she says,
"Give that pain away, give that pain…"

I knew I drew her in like a flame
This candle wick of my burning shame, gravely
I dare not move but in step
But I don't care to leave her stride yet, her glide
A kindred soul beside

She looks into my eyes and studies right through
I'm locked into the stare; I can see through hers too
The air is cutting cold, but she's holding on
I'm going to forget; get gone

She walks without a shiver of sound
But she keeps what she found
Oh, she takes my pain away, takes my pain away
Watches until the frigid hour
While you're all alone she says,
"Give that pain away, give that pain…
…away"
She walks, waits, and listens
[Exit]
