the singer with tears in your eyes

The singer with tears in your eyes.
Sometimes you fall, sometimes you fly
Tonight you cry.

The singer with tears in your eyes.
Reminiscing about stolen guitars but still, you sing.
Your pain is tearing at my own heartstrings.

Not even the microphone can hide the anguish.

The tools of a songwriter’s trade…a cherished legacy
gone and you with more miles to travel.
So many miles to go. No time to unravel.

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

I watch you suspended in the dark of the neon backlit stage.
There that you struggle to let go.
of what you used to think “is mine”,
but now only belongs to time.

As a silent witness to your lonely fight,
it’s a moment I’ll remember 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.
Tonight you cry.

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