Nothing But A Little Pain

From the Michael Andrew album Four Play
Words and music by Michael Andrew Itzoe

Written during the midst of a breakup, but not mine. Two friends were having trouble, and I wanted to offer advice, but didn't know how. This came out instead.

Lyrics

With a little love comes a lot of heartache
With the joy come the bitter tears
And for every lonely night
It's a different situation
In the darkness haunted by your fears
But it's nothing -- no loss, no gain
It's nothing but a little pain

With a little hope comes a lot of sorrow
A little trust, a lot of jealousy
And for every unkind word
And for every confrontation
There's a time for simple honesty
But when nothing, nothing else remains
There's nothing but a little pain
No, nothing but a little pain

When emotions run high
When the worst is the best that you can hope to find
Then there's nothing
Nothing but a little pain, a little pain

But it's nothing if it's all in vain
It's nothing but a little pain

No words to say, no games to play
There's no price to pay, no throwing it all away
'Cause there's nothing but a little pain
Nothing but a little pain

Nothing but a little pain
