sometimes i wake up in the morning. sometimes i dream some more. i keep my wounds without a bandage. as i come stumbling through the door. to spend my nights in dislocation talking to spirits on the floor. i think i came to find the feeling...baby, between what was mine and what was yours.

i came to get hurt. might as well do your worst to me. have you come here to get her? have you come to take her away from me? might as well do your worst to me.

i think i’m gonna move to california. (i think it’s time to move) mama can you say a prayer for me? (say a prayer for me.) i heard they don’t get so low down. (all my friends get so low down, mama.) i heard they never bleed, not like we bleed.

and it gets pretty late, and the stations will change. and the things once in order, now seem so strange. once i could tell all the hurt apart from myself. now all i can see is the need, the need... and i came to get hurt...

and maybe you needed a change. maybe i was in the way. maybe some things they stay and some things go away. maybe i was mine and maybe you were not the same.

Get Hurt

Sometimes I wake up in the morning
Sometimes I dream some more
I keep my wounds without a bandage, baby
As I come stumbling through the door
To spend my nights in dislocation
Talking to spirits on the floor
I think I came to find the feeling, baby
Between what was mine and what was yours

And I came to get hurt, might as well do your worst to me
Have you come here to get her?
Have you come to take her away from me?
Might as well do your worst to me

I think I'm going to move to California (I think it's time to move)
Mama can you say a prayer for me? (say a prayer for me)
I heard they don't get so low-down (all my friends get so low-down, Mama)
I heard they never bleed, not like we bleed

I came to get hurt, might as well do your worst to me
Have you come here to get her?
Have you come to take her away from me?
Might as well do your worst to me

And it gets pretty late
And the stations will change
And the things once in order, now seem so strange
Once I could tell all the hurt apart from myself
Now all I can see is the need, the need...

That I came to get hurt, might as well do your worst to me
Have you come here to get her?
Have you come to take her away from me?
Might as well do your worst to me

And maybe you needed a change and maybe I was in the way
Maybe some things they stay and some things go away
And maybe I was mine and maybe you were not the same

Is it just me, or does it sound like the last chorus goes: Have you come here to get HER?

I was undecided between her/hurt for that line. It very well could be her each time in the chorus but it's hard to tell with the low quality mp3.

It definitely sounds like "her" the last time.

I agree here. It's hurt in the first line of the last chorus because you can hear the "t" sound but I agree, definitely sounds like her the very last time. Hard to be certain though.

Also nice job with the lyrics Ral!

Maybe it's because I'm not a native english speaker but it's not clear to me who came to take her away from him. The whole time he seems to be speaking to his former lover but that line is confusing to me =D

I hear "have you come here to get her?" every time in the chorus.  Last line I hear as "maybe I was me and maybe you were not the same," but to me the word after "was" is the hardest to figure in the whole thing. Now I hear "dislocation" and "once I could tell all the hurt apart from myself" clearly, though, good job.

I was hearing this the other day too. I think you're right. But not EVERY time, just every 2nd time. Like "I came to get hurt.....have you come here to get her?" in each chorus. That may have been what you meant.

I'm hearing "maybe I was mine, and maybe you were not the same" because it still has that "i" sound but I'm hearing the "m" now too.

Doesn't he sing:

"As I come stumbling through the door
TO spend my nights in dislocation
Talking to spirits on the floor"

(instead of I spend my nights...) ?

Hmmm I'm pretty certain it's "I spend my night's in dislocation"

I'm pretty sure I hear a short "T" right before, not an I. And wouldn't it make more sense to have to instead of "I" again (which was in the line before this one)?

I'm definitely hearing "to". There's a T sound there like Klarstrom said.
