As the tide starts coming in
And everything you do is a sin
The sun beats down on your skin.
The waves crash against the shore
And you do wrong once more
You’re so vain it makes you sore
And it hurts. Oh, it hurts.
The gravel crunches under your feet
And you feel the need to retreat
Because every time it’s just a defeat.
You wander until you get lost
And you’re thinking of the cost
The cost that counts the most
Life. And it hurts. Oh, it hurts.
