“What Hurts the Most” – performed by Racal Flatts

I can take the rain on the roof of this empty house
That don’t bother me
I can take a few tears now and then and just let ’em out
I’m not afraid to cry every once in a while
Even though goin’ on with you gone still upsets me
There are days every now and again I pretend I’m okay
But that’s not what gets me

[Chorus]
What hurts the most was being so close
And havin’ so much to say
And watchin’ you walk away
And never knowin’ what could’ve been
And not seein’ that lovin’ you
Is what I was trying to do

It’s hard to deal with the pain of losin’ you everywhere I go
But I’m doing it
It’s hard to force that smile when I see our old friends and I’m alone
Still harder gettin’ up, gettin’ dressed, livin’ with this regret
But I know if I could do it over
I would trade, give away all the words that I saved in my heart
That I left unspoken

What hurts the most was being so close
And havin’ so much to say
And watchin’ you walk away
And never knowin’ what could’ve been
And not seein’ that lovin’ you
Is what I was trying to do, oh

[Chorus]

(Not seeing that lovin’ you)
That’s what I was trying to do, ooh

“What Hurts the Most” was performed by the Rascal Flatts. During funeral services, the family members of the deceased will probably still be in grief. This song can help them identify the reason for their grieving because it talks about why people cry when someone dies.

The piece starts off telling the listeners that life has so many challenges. People get hurt in numerous ways. And that most situations can easily be addressed. But losing someone through death is a different situation. Death is something you cannot change and grief is not the easiest emotion to address.

The song identifies why people are upset when someone dies. It’s not because they will not see him again forever, but it is because of all those missed opportunities that were wasted. It is only in death that you realize how much thoughts you want to share with that someone. You get mad at yourself for not having the guts to say everything you feel even if you spend a lot of time together.

In conclusion, the song talks about not taking anything for granted. Life is a journey and people really don’t know when this journey would end. So always take the time to express to other people how you really feel.
