HURTIN' AND HEALIN'

I fell hard for her
And gave her my heart
I knew for certain
That we'd never part
But nobody told me
He wounded her so
She needed my love
To cushion the blow.

Once my love healed her
And took all her pain
He came back for her
To start in again
Then I knew hurtin'
Like I'd never known
She left me cryin'
My heart out alone.

CHORUS
Hurtin' and healin'
Two links in the chain
He hurt her
I healed her
And took all her pain
Once I had healed her
It started again.

Tears flowed like rivers
Till you came along
You healed the hurtin'
And set right the wrong
We forged a new link
In that hurtin' chain
But now I wonder
Is it starting again?

Whose hurt do I heal?
Who's there in your past?
Who's comin' for you?
Why won't this love last?
Why would you want him?
Remember the pain
It took all of my love
To heal you again.

CHORUS
Hurtin' and healin'
Two links in the chain
She hurt me
You healed me
And took all my pain
But now I wonder
Is it starting again?

If you leave, darlin'
My hurtin' won't heal
With you departin'
My heart turns to steel
I will not find me
A healer like you
No hope do I see
My life will be through.

Let's stop the hurtin'
Let's end all the pain
Our kind of lovin'
Can seal up this chain
Once our good lovin'
Has healed you and me
Hurtin' and healin'
No more will we see.

CHORUS
Hurtin' and healin'
Two links in the chain
They hurt us
Love healed us
And mended the chain.
