THIRD DAY Thoughts: Can't Take the Pain

Description

"Lord, you took the pain, even though I left you; you took the shame, and you made it all your own..." Enjoy these lyrics from THIRD DAY's song, "Can't Take the Pain."

And the sword shall come upon Egypt, and great pain shall be in Ethiopia when the slain shall fall in Egypt; and they shall take away her multitude, and her foundations shall be broken down (Ezekiel 30:4)

No, I didn't see this one comin'
It suddenly snuck up on me
I can't say you didn't tell me so
I can't say you didn't warn me
 
Well I can't take the pain,
Knowing that I left you
And I can't bear the shame
Of knowing I was wrong
But I'll take the blame for everything that I've done
But I can't take the pain of leaving you alone
leaving you alone
 
I was there when they accused you
But I guess I was too afraid
Not just once, and not just twice
But three times I denied your name
 
Well I can't take the pain,
Knowing that I left you
And I can't bear the shame
Of knowing I was wrong
But I'll take the blame for everything that I've done
But I can't take the pain of leaving you alone
leaving you alone
 
I never thought I'd get
Even a second chance
But you've given that, and so much more
And then for every time I ever did deny,
You asked me if I love you
You know I do, Lord
 
So I'm off to follow in your steps
It won't be easy, it's safe to say
Only two roads I can walk on down
The one less traveled is the one you paved
 
But I can't take the pain,
Knowing that I left you
And I can't bear the shame
Of knowing I was wrong
But I'll take the blame for everything that I've done
But I can't take the pain of leaving you alone
leaving you alone
 
Lord, you took the pain
Even though I left you
And you took the shame, and you made it all your own
Why'd you take the blame for everything that I've done?
Lord, you took the pain, you and you alone
You and you alone.
