In their eyes

And in my heart I’m crying

as I hold you in my arms

knowing

you’ll leave me

so soon

And the songs that once were beautiful

have lost their melody

I’ll sing until I forget all the words

and change my sense of key

I’ll wait until you cry

just so I can calm you down

to claim ownership

to call you mine

I like to hear you cry

knowing the pain is not my own

And your tears

all taste

sweet
