It only hurts when I cry    (intro)

 

A ~

 

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - D - E A

The only time I feel the pain is in the sunshine or the rain,

D - E A

and I don't feel no hurt at all unless you count when teardrops fall.

D - E A

I tell the truth 'cept when I lie, it only hurts me when I cry.

 

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - E A

1. You couldn't tell it by this smile, but my recovery took a while,

E A

I worked for days and nights on end, just to walk and talk again.

D E - E7

You can't believe the time it takes to heal a heart once it brea.ks.

 

+ CHORUS - - - + D - E - A

 

 

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - E A

2. You wouldn't know to look at me, there's tiny scars that you can't see

E A

it was a struggle to survive, I'm probably lucky I'm alive.

D E - E7

You can't believe the time it takes to heal a heart once it brea.ks.

 

+ CHORUS

 

D - E A

I tell the truth 'cept when I lie, it only hurts me when I cry.

D - E - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - A

I tell the truth 'cept when I lie, it only hurts me when I cry.
