Rascal Flatts - Let It Hurt Lyrics

7:42 in the morning
8 seconds before it all sinks in
Put your best face on for the world
Fake another smile and just pretend
But you're just puttin' off the pain
Nothing's ever really gonna change

So let it hurt, let it bleed
Let it take you right down to your knees
Let it burn to the worst degree
May not be what you want, but it's what you need
Sometimes the only way around it
Is to let love do it's work
And let it hurt
Yeah, let it hurt

3:28 in the morning
Countin' up the spaces between the rain
You're gettin' used to the rocks at the bottom
Your heart goes numb, but the lonely stays the same
And that's the price you're bound to pay
And there's really nothing anyone can say
Oh, there's only just one way

So let it hurt, let it bleed
Let it take you right down to your knees
Let it burn to the worst degree
May not be what you want, but it's what you need
Sometimes the only way around it
Is to let love do it's work
So go on
Yeah, let it hurt

You might just find you're better for it
When you let go and you learn
To let it hurt, let it bleed
Let it take you right down to your knees
Sometimes the only way around it
Is to let love do it's work
So go on
And let it hurt
Oh, let it hurt

7:42 in the morning
8 seconds before it all sinks in

    I let it take me down to my knees because I couldn’t anymore. But my mom told me that gods throws the hardest things at us to test our faith. I never lost faith or blamed god for my depression. But I often questioned if he still loved me after everything..maybe he does. Maybe he doesn’t. I don’t know anymore. But Ik that it can get better because I have my family.

  19. Chris Moss

    My dad died in October, around the 13th. And yes, sometimes I just needed to let it hurt, and the loss rip me apart.Tonight I sat in his studio and lovingly packed up his art stuff and just cried and cried.

  20. Kenny Colon

    I’m here sitting on my couch listening to this and trying to figure out what’s going on from now on that my wife wants to go out separate ways and is hurting already but I guess it hurts most to hold on to someone that doesn’t feel the same anymore. I’m going to let it hurt and hope that either God is going to fix it or heal me and help me keep on moving.

  21. marlene cracknell

    It's been almost a year since my near fatal car accident. Still occasionally have triggers and flashbacks but overtime, it's gotten easier. For those times those things happen, this song really does help. Thankful I'm still here but dealing with the results from my traumatic experience and memories hasn't been easy.

  38. Sunshine Holtzlander

  39. 070719

    Found out my husband of 9 years was gay damn I needed this song

  40. John Fowler

    I can't remember what it feels like to not hurt like this. There's just no escaping this it's been the darkest days of my life. I live knowing it's because of me im having to go through this and I can't get over her. We were meant for one another without question we both know that and want desperately to find our way back to each other. I'm dying lil more everyday without her. She overdosed trying to commit suicide. I had a complete and total break down from being away from her. III crave her, so addicted to her I'm sick without her. I waited 26 years lol. We were Jr high school sweethearts and I never got over her. Few years ago we found each other and we were together instantly and it was story book. So perfect, everything was amazing. I've never known love like this I didn't believe it existed. I promise it does. We've been apart 3 months and it's killing both of us to be apart. It's getting so much harder everyday and I know without doubt I'll die if I don't make my way back home to her. We made a drastic change that disrupted our lives and making everything so different from what we were used to. Neither of us were happy and we lost each other. At the time we didn't know how much we meant to one another but separating us from each other ruined both of us we had no idea it would be like this. Horrible, we were so much in love so happy, our lives together were almost perfect. We just lost each other and now everyday a living hell without her. She's hurting so much, I'm not sure how much longer I can endure this kinda pain. It's too much, I'm miserable and I can't see living without her. I pray we can make our way back home from the hell we've been in. Please pray for us, so lost when we are apart. I miss her more everyday and it's not like we will heal and move on. That's just not an option. Send love and light maybe we make our way home...

  41. Gloria Ramirez

  45. Amanda Brunner

    July was 5 years since my twins were stillborn due to twin to twin transfusion syndrome, despite having a surgery to try to correct the issue. Today I felt like I was doing okay then I got a card in the mail from The Mayo clinic asking me to attend their 1st fetal intervention reunion and it sent me spiraling back. This will forever be my reality. 5 years later and it's still hurts just as much. I have 2 healthy children now but my heart will always ache for my twin boys.

  46. Justin Johns

    "It may not be what you wanted but its what you need" so much truth. God blessed us with emotion to experience emotions, let them flow don't be scared. The world needs more truth, light and love. God bless you all, you are all perfect in your very own unique and beautiful way.

  47. Ellen H. Rimmer

  50. Yesenia Martinez

    I love this song

  51. Dayvin Boisvert

    God I love her so much but I just can't tell if she feels quite the same and it's been hard. She doesn't want to talk much anymore and will just leave me hanging then the moment she needs something she acts like nothing she's done has happened and I just don't know what to do anymore

    Veritas Aequitas

    Yes you do know..your gut tells you..you just don't want to hear it..

    Dayvin Boisvert

    @Veritas Aequitas you were right. I listened to it and I'm happier now without her then with her

  52. Priscilla Torres

  55. Rachel Phipps

    It really has taken me down to my knees tonight. How do you get through losing the person you thought you were gonna be with forever,? Especially when they just throw you aside as if you never saw each others soul??

    ContractWolf 666

    Well darlin, you take it day by day and hope you never feel that pain again, and never ever stop living your life.

    Rachel Phipps

    @ContractWolf 666 I'm not sure I can right now. I've survived abusive relationships and a marriage break up but this...hurts worse than anything.

    ContractWolf 666

    @Rachel Phipps all I can tell you is that it hurts to the point were some people give up but trust me, the pain eventually fades and leaves a scar making you stronger

  56. Corbie Friday

    *when you let go and you learn (not love) to let it hurt

  57. Rosie McCann

    This song always hits me in the heart because I always fake a smile and pretend i hide my pain so no one ask me about why im crying or what's wrong. I rather deal with my pain on my own.. Thats how i cope i cry and deal with it on my own or i go to my best friend which is my mom

  58. Doris Night

    I'm really beginning to love Rascal Flatts....all these songs really touch me.

  66. Amanda nicole Smith

    Two years this day I lost my fiancé to suicide.

    Takes me to my knees all the time 😔

  67. MyPsychoLogic

    I lost my grandpa to cancer 8 years ago and for a long time I pushed any hurt, anger, sadness about his death into a corner of my mind thinking it would make it easier to cope with. It didnt and I've still not come to terms fully with his death but ive stopped trying to just push the thoughts to the back of my mind

  68. Cheyenne Strickler

    Um.. I was listening to a song my ex dedicated to me and this song wasnt even on the next lists of songs to play... It just came up and skipped all the others... Wth

  76. Alexis Maki

    This is so true my uncle passed this morning and you wanna drive it away and not feel the pain but you need to :(

  77. Morgan Grace

    The best of 8 months ended a few weeks ago. I haven't let process the fact that I broke up with him. And today, I knew I had to let myself hurt for him. I am definitely not the type of girl that wallows. I'd rather work off my pain, or distract myself. And today it hit me. It ended on the 13th. It's the 21st and the pain of that day is still the same. Laying in my bed I want to run to the knives downstairs because that's one thing I can control. But I don't. Because it won't fix anything. I'm broken and in pain, but I'm not letting it take me. I have friends all around me who are helping me. I know if I end it they'll hurt too. I refuse to give them that pain. People around you care too. Whatever you're going through, it will hurt, but don't make a stupid decision and give your friends/ family that pain too. I love you. You are worthy of love. You are a queen/king. Keep your shin up, your crown is slipping. <3

  78. carol simpson

  93. Haley Troxell

    I have depression and anxiety but now my ex just broke up with me and he started blocking me on everything.I guess ima just let it hurt❤️😭

  94. Desiree Wickstrom

    It burned and hurt, let love do its work, all love did was hurt me. I should say Thomas hurt me with all his words and hurt, love should not hurt like that. So love is something you don't have and never did for me. Five and a half years of lies,, thank you


    Yes it hurts, it’ll always hurt. Every heartbreak, every lost loved one, the hurt is normal. Sure it sucks but these scars are only skin deep, I’m just as strong if not stronger than I’ve ever been.

  96. Diane Mckinney
