Canít stand to look at myself anymore
Donít know what this thing I have is for
It might go off in my hand
It might just go kill another man
Face down dead on the floor

My heart beats like a lonely voice
My head is filled with noise
I hear the laughter of some far off place
Within my mind, a saving grace
Killed by my own choice

These are the hardest tears
The ones that cause all the fears
These are the saddest years

I feel uncertain, which way to go
I canít let these feelings show
Donít want to raise that alarm
Or bring you any harm
But this only I really know

Itís not as easy as it used to be
To escape this nightmare reality
Feel my hidden hunger
Because I wonít be getting younger
I will cease to be, me

These are the hardest tears
The ones you caused, but cannot hear
These are the saddest years

Happy faces and
Bright shiny places
Donít seem to illuminate
Only humiliate
In all these cases

So much, so little, so late
To change our fate
This now stands clear
Your voice falls on deaf ears
Love is so much like hate

These are the hardest tears
The ones that come when you are near
These are the saddest years

Thank you SEA...

Lady in White, that is the first time I heard that. That makes such absolute sense, thank you.
