about

This is a song I wrote last year with the help of my good friend Geoff Thurman. I wrote the lyrics with a bond movie girl slant and it morphed into more of an everyday girl who finds herself embarrassed and alone after an adventurous fling in the tropics with someone she trusted but who let her down.

lyrics

The Measure Of Her Pain
Joe Ozier Geoff Thurman

As the ocean breeze sets her mind at ease  With the taste of wine on her lips  In the turquoise bay where the waters sway  At the touch of her fingertips

It’s the clearest sky in the dead of night  With a shroud of stars up above  It’s the perfect time to realize  That she’s in a broken love

A song is born to gratify when drinking from this well  Of everything that matters now from Heaven and from Hell  In innocence she bares herself to seek what she would gain  From just beneath the melody  The measure of her pain

From behind the scene and the fine cuisine  A foretelling darkness descends  She begins to cry in a sad good-bye  She succumbs to the tragic end  In innocence she bares herself to seek what she would gain  From just beneath the melody  The measure of her pain

A song is born to gratify when drinking from this well  Of everything that matters now from Heaven and from Hell 
Follow me  Hear the beat  Let me help you see  Feel the flow  Get to know  The sour sun and sea

It’s a bitter pill but she takes it still  When tomorrow is quite unclear  In the troubled bay on her dying day  She prays to persevere

A song is born to gratify when drinking from this well  Of everything that matters now from Heaven and from Hell  In innocence she bares herself to seek what she would gain  From just beneath the melody  The measure of her pain....The measure of her pain
