These Tears

These tears, these tears

These tears, they won’t fall

These tears, they hurt so bad


Why me? Why now?

I wish you’d fall

Fall, so I can be free

It hurts, it hurts

Deep breaths, deep breaths

God sees me, God knows


So I’ll try again

Deep breaths, deep breaths

Is that.. is that a tickle in my throat?



Finally, I feel it

My eyes, they sting

Finally, the tears are here

Thank you

Deep breaths, deep breaths

Everything will be just fine.
