She cries late at night ... so no one else hears,
though she's always grateful ... for the company of her own tears.
There is so much of her no one else has tasted...
so much kept locked inside ... she knows so much of her has been wasted.
She aches for the things she's lost ... so much taken away,
so many lies, the worn and tired alibis ... love just wouldn't stay.
She asks for so little ... only to die with no regrets ...
but then first she would have to know contentment ...
and that hasn't happened yet.
Eyes filled with tears ... cant see into the future,
but its just got to be better ... of this she is sure.
There is nothing in her present to make love last ...
and then there are those shadows ...
always knowing she is owned by her past.
She knows she is the only one who can truly set her free ...
but the ties that bind now chain her, denying sweet destiny.
So she cries late at night, drowning in her tears ...
and she pretends not to notice ... the passing of her best years.
How you make your face just like a wall
How you take your heart and turn it off
How I turn my head and you lose it all ...
And it's unnerving
How one move just puts me by myself
There you go just trusting someone else
Now I know I put us both through hell ...
I'm not sayin
That there was nothing wrong
I just didn't think you'd ever get tired of me
And I'm not sayin
We ever had the right to hold on
I just didn't wanna let you get away from me.
