Sure is Hell

I know the chances that I take when I see her face to face

It's so hard for me not to slip

With my hands against her skin

We go days without saying “Hi.”

Still, there's hope left in our lies

This pain we try our best to hide

Is so easy to feel from the inside


It's so hard to say it's over

When it always comes to this

You take my hand

We know the moves all too well

It's nice to have a piece of Heaven

Cause everything else sure is Hell

Sure is hell

It sure is


She laughs and says "I am sober."

With written words, it's hard to spell

I still have that mark on my shoulder

If only those walls were here to tell

Corruption casts its shadow

That blankets both our hearts

In this moment we'll both say sorry

Until the next time, we're apart


It's so hard to say its over

When it always comes to this

You take my hand

We know the moves all too well

It's nice to have a piece of Heaven

Cause everything else sure is Hell

Sure is hell

It sure is


Your bleeding heart still holds its beauty

Your selfishness always brings me down

I find myself unknowingly at peace

When I'm surrounded by your sounds


It's so hard to say its over

When it always comes to this

You take my hand

We know the moves all too well

It's nice to have a piece of Heaven

Cause everything else sure is Hell

Sure is hell

It sure is

A song I wrote about slipping up and falling back into a place just because it is comfortable. In times of pain, it is easy to turn to a quick fix. For some it’s alcohol. For some it’s drugs. For some it’s sex. Regardless of the vice, a band-aid approach to your pain isn’t the best option. This song came from a time when I was trying to erase my pain by being with the woman who was causing it. Not my best decision. Looking back, it only caused more issues in the long run, and I’d had been better off staying away. Live and learn, right? Thankfully this point in my life drove me to the bottom, and from the bottom, I learned a lot about myself. Soon after I found myself in church. Though my struggles didn’t vanish, I know I’m not alone and never will be and will no longer seek such insignificant tools to try and bury any pain I may be in.
