The Gaslight Anthem – Get Hurt Lyrics

Sometimes I wake up in the mornin’
Sometimes I dream some more
I keep my wounds without a bandage, baby
As I come stumblin’ through the door1

Spend my nights in dislocation
Talkin’ to spirits on the floor2
I think I came to find a feelin’, baby3
Between what was mine and what was yours4

And I came to get hurt
(Get hurt)
Might as well do your worst to me
(Get hurt)5
Have you come here to get hurt?
(Get hurt)
Have you come to take away from me?
From me, from me6
Might as well do your worst to me

I think I’m gonna move to California
Momma can you say a prayer for me?7
(Say a prayer for me)
I heard they don’t get so lowdown
I heard they never bleed8
Not like we9 bleed

And I came to get hurt
(Get hurt)
Might as well do your worst to me
(Get hurt)
Have you come here to get hurt?
(Get hurt)
Have you come to take away from me?
From me, from me
Might as well do your worst to me

And it gets pretty late
And the stations will change
And the things once in order
Now seem so strange10

Once I could tell all the hurt apart from myself
Now all I can see is the need, the need that11

I came to get hurt
(Get hurt)
Might as well do your worst to me
(Get hurt)
Have you come here to get hurt?
(Get hurt)
Have you come to take away from me?
From me, from me
Might as well do your worst to me

And maybe you needed a change
And maybe I was in the way12
Maybe some things they stay
And some things go away13
And maybe I was mine
And maybe you were not the same14
