the singer with tears in your eyes

The singer with tears in her eyes.

Sometimes you fall sometimes you fly
what is it tonight that makes you cry.

The singer with tears in your eyes.
It’s over missing guitars you sing,
your pain tugging at my heartstrings.

The symbols of a songwriters background…
now they’re gone and you with more miles to travel.
Miles ahead but you won’t unravel.

There’s real pain in your face.
Not even the microphone can hide the disgrace.

The tears roll on down
sing deep sing low
nowhere for the pain to go.

I watch you suspended in the masquerade
of the neon backlit stage.
It’s there that you try so hard to let go.
of what you used to think “is mine”,
but now only belongs to time.

A silent witness to your lonely fight
it’s a moment I’ll keep the rest of my life.
When you’re not angry anymore
will you remember the sadness you wore?

The singer with tears in your eyes.
Sometimes you fall sometimes you fly.
What is it that makes you cry?

The tears roll on down
sung deep sung low
where’d your pain go?
