Allan, Gary - Get Off On The Pain Lyrics

I don't know why I love women
That love to do me wrong
Don't know why my life sounds like
A heartbroke country song
I ain't really happy
Unless the sky starts driving rain
Maybe I just get off on the pain

My whole life I been picking fights
There ain't no way to win
Got a hundred scars I should have run away
Now tattooed on my skin
There's a side of me that just won't stop
Dancin' in the flame
Maybe I just get off on the pain

Cause I love the long shot
And the left out lost causes
Hanging out in the back of the pack with the dark horses
I ride the wrong road just as fast as I can
God knows there's no one else to blame
Sometimes I think I get off on the pain

Wake up every morning, a thousand miles from home
Praying for forgiveness
For this aching in my bones
It would be so easy
To find a better way
Oh but I know I'll never change

Cause I love the long shot
And the left out lost causes
Hanging out in the back of the pack with the dark horses
I ride the wrong road just as fast as I can
God knows there's no one else to blame
Sometimes I think I get off on the pain

Cause I love the long shot
And the left out lost causes
Hanging out in the back of the pack with the dark horses
I ride the wrong road just as fast as I can
God knows there's no one else to blame
I know I'm the only one to blame
Sometimes I think I get off on the pain
Get off on the pain

  1. Lori Wetzel

    I like your musical heart scar:)

  2. Keith Stringer

    I can fully relate to this song because my whole life has been full of pain

  3. Maggie Red

    This reminds me of my best friend who is a female bull rider! Competed w/ the big boys in her hay days! She retired when she got married & when she found out she was pregnant! I tip my hat off to her

  4. Jack Zarate


  5. Rick Bane

    It's definitely most powerful wording for a song.writer most definitely was a genius with the lyrics for the song and of course the guitar players intensified the song when they play the chords on there guitars. I would think it should have won a country music awards wouldn't you think..? If it didn't it should have so if he didn't he got robbed from it. Heard a lot of songs my day but nothing like that'll and I mean that as a honest compliment.....

    Shame on CMT promoting all these people that don't have a clue what country music is and don't even want to know. Half the so-called country music singers get their start through CMT because they can't cut it through the other classifications of music. Shame on CMT they did this and let it take over country music. No doubt all this BS inspired the song Murder on Music Row which is exactly what they did.
