further on up the road

someone’s gonna hurt you like you hurt me 
you just wait and see

Further on up or further on down the road might depend on your mood. The road certainly has ups and downs.

“You’ll get what’s coming to you,” typically expresses our wish of justice being dealt out to those that have been unjust to us.

Interesting how common that feeling/wish of revenge is. Live and let live probably takes more thinking and will power. Often there is more to gain by moving on.

Powerful songs express powerful emotions. Those emotions range from joyful to sad. Paul Simon took the live and let live approach in his “American Tune”.

I don't know a soul who's not been battered
Don't have a friend who feels at ease
Don't know a dream that's not been shattered
Or driven to its knees.
Ah but it's all right, it’s all right,
for we've lived so well so long

Singing about revenge is less harmful than taking action against some past did-me-wrong person. But if I were to sing the song it would be harmful to anyone in hearing range.

I’m not seeking any revenge but I do enjoy the guitar magic of Eric Clapton and Joe Bonamassa. Here’s a great example of their talent.
