Alec Benjamin - Beautiful Pain Lyrics

If you gave me only one wish
I wouldn't want to feel this way
They told me I'd have your memory
But all I want is you to stay
And I cant stop my mind from haunting me
It's like a scar on a butterfly's wing
I wanted you to know

This beautiful pain that I feel
Is all because of you
And one day these bones will heal
And they'll leave me with the truth
And I'll give you everything
If it's the last thing that I do
This beautiful pain
This beautiful pain
This beautiful pain
For you

If I sailed the world on stormy seas
Chasing sun light that I can't see
I was a dreamer here before
Before I woke up and fell to the floor
And I'd climb to heaven
If I could find you
Even with the scar
This butterfly flew
I wanted you to know

This beautiful pain that I feel
Is all because of you
And one day these bones will heal
And they'll leave me with the truth
And I'll give you everything
If it's the last thing that I do
This beautiful pain
This beautiful pain
This beautiful pain

And all I'll ever need
And all I'll ever be
Within every part of me
Is this..

This beautiful pain that I feel
And it's all because of you
And one day these bones will heal
And leave me with the truth
And I'll give you everything
Cause it was all I ever knew
This beautiful pain
This beautiful pain
This beautiful pain
For you

    i love how our Alec doesnt make just casual songs, he writes real stories and make you feel the same he does. when i listen its like my mom reads me a story before she leaves...

    I found this song years ago and I never thought I could feel it as deep down in my heart as I'm doing now. 2 months ago my grandma died, I was there at the moment it happened because she said she wanted her three grandchildren to be with her until the end, so I gave her that wish. I was never a good granddaughter, I was struggling with depression since I was 10 so I never really felt like visiting her, I just wanted to be alone. I didn't even know I loved her, to be honest. I know she knew I was depressed, but she didn't deserve that. Now I cry everytime I think of her. I miss her much more than I ever thought I would. I regret with my soul not showing her how much she meant for me. I only got to tell her '' I love you '' once in her life, and it tears me apart that it had to be at the hospital. I miss her, I love her, and even though she wouldn't want me to, I hate myself to death for not being the granddaughter she loved with her heart.

    Even though no one has probably read till here, I just wanted to rant a little. If you're reading this, love the people you love and show them. You never know when they'll be gone.

    the truth
    beautiful pain
    my ex best friend caused me to feel beautiful pain
    so i texted her on snap chat this song
    she started crying
    tears of laughter


    I literally cried while listening to this song cause I learned that my friend was cutting themself

    Thank you for writing this. I didn’t know how to say what I feel since I just recently lost my grandpa. Thank you. I owe you. Thank you

  28. Hello Random People.

    When I think about my grandpa i'll listen to this. My grandpa passed away earlier this year. I still can't get over it. When he died I was lost. I still am lost, even though it has been 4-5 months have past. I never got to visit him when he was at his nursing home because I was sick or my allergies were really bad on those days. I will never be found again.

  29. Addy Conley

    i have a grandma in heart and she's 82 right now. she's not our biological grandma but has taken care of my grandma and her siblings. she goes back that far out in our family and is still continuing to take care of us. Im just 13 and she is still alive and well and she keeps telling us she is gonna die already. not even jokingly she says it. shes happy if she dies. not because she wouldnt be with us but because she would be with her family already. im scared of losin her because shes been there for us for 3 generations and shes just family now but if she can be with her family it is okay. im crying because i know shes gonna die soon enough but its for her betterment. if only she could understand english i wanna sing this to her while shes with us but right now all i can say to her is i love you :)

    I love you alec.
    You helped me with my breakup.
