Everybody Hurts (R.E.M.): Radio Dharma #2


When you’re sure you’ve had enough
Of this life
Well hang on
Don’t let yourself go…

Everybody cries
And everybody hurts sometimes
And everybody hurts sometimes
So, hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on…

You are not alone


Take a break if you must,
but not from life itself,
or you will hurt even more in the next life.

Remember that everybody hurts,
that you are not ‘special’.

It is from overcoming hurt,
letting it make you stronger,
that you will be free from such hurt.
