lyrics

WHEN THE BAD IS PASSED

When the bad is passed
When the cuts are bleeding
When the bruises come and you lose the feeling
When your mind goes numb
And the words won’t come
And you can’t get up cos you’re kneeling

When the bad is passed
And the hurricane’s gone
It’s a question asked from a bitten tongue
And the blue-black eye
Is wondering why
Do they say it’s time for healing

Chorus
And oh, you hope that somebody’ll come
That sometime soon the paying will be done
And oh, you hope that somebody’ll turn
And rest will come

When the bad is passed
And the world’s gone mad
It’s the wildest dream you ever had
And you can’t get it straight
‘cos it’s just too late
To find the deeper meaning

When the bad is passed
And it all goes still
And the music’s stopped ‘cos of somebody’s will
And the ache in your arms
Been up your back
It’s where you fell and it all fell flat


Chorus
And oh, you hope that somebody’ll come
That sometime soon the paying will be done
And oh, you hope that somebody’ll turn
And rest will come

When the bad is passed
And the trust has left
You see with your eyes and you know what’s best
But you still can’t move
And make the break
You’ve lost your love and the love was fake

When the bad is passed
And you can’t think how
It led to this, to do this now
And the sadness covers you
Like a cloak
And the truth runs down your face and throat

Chorus
And oh, you hope that somebody’ll come
That sometime soon the paying will be done
And oh, you hope that somebody’ll come
That sometime soon the paying will be done
And oh, you wish that somebody’ll turn
And rest will come
Rest will come
