Audience For My Pain Lyrics – Levon Helm

Well it would take a miracle
Just to ease my troubled mind
And I know you’re tryin’ to help me
You try so hard to be so kind

But if we spend the night together
Well I know you can’t remain
And darling you’re too good to be
Just an audience for my pain

Once I loved a woman
She just took my heart away
And I tried so hard to break away
Break loose from her control

Oh, ’cause she still has a hold on me
By some big miserable chain
Oh my darling you’re too good to be
Just an audience for my pain
Oh, my pain

Well if I let you stay here
It would be a big mistake
You’ve got to love a man
Who really got more than he takes

I’m living in a prison
No you cannot see the bars
And I’ve been wounded
But you can’t see my scars

I’m so afraid you have to leave me now
And the reason it’s so plain
Oh darling you’re too good to be
Just an audience for my pain

An audience for my pain
Too good to be, too good to my pain
Just an audience for my pain

Too good to be, too good to be
Too good to be, for my pain
Too good to be, too good to be
Too good to be, for my pain
