This Is Gonna Hurt Me

by C. Carson Parks

This is a rather lightweight song, and tossing the singing chores back and forth didn’t do it much good, but we thought it might help. It’s obviously based on the old thing that most children hear: “This is gonna hurt me more than it hurts you.” Two people trying to put the failure of a relationship on each other. “I’m leaving, so you won’t dump me!” This is probably one of those songs I should have quit on, half-way through, but I enjoy going into the studio, and seeing if I can make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear.
