Everybody Hurts

Lyrics

play When the day is long
play And the night, the night is yours alone
play When you're sure you've had enough
play Of this life, well hang on

play Don't let yourself go
play 'Cause everybody cries
play And everybody hurts sometimes

play Sometimes everything is wrong
play Now it's time to sing along
play When your day is night alone
play (Hold on, hold on)
play If you feel like letting go
play (Hold on)
play If you think you've had too much
play Of this life, well hang on

play 'Cause everybody hurts
play Take comfort in your friends
play Everybody hurts

play Don't throw your hand, oh no
play Don't throw your hand
play If you feel like you're alone
play No, no, no, you are not alone

play If you're on your own in this life
play The days and nights are long
play When you think
play you've had too much of this life to hang on

play Well, everybody hurts sometimes
play Everybody cries
play And everybody hurts sometimes
play And everybody hurts sometimes

play So hold on, hold on
play Hold on, hold on, hold on,
play hold on, hold on, hold on
play Everybody hurts

play No, no, no, no you are not alone
