Heart of Tears

Sunday, July 25th, 2010

Another cold Vermont morning
is broken open by the dawn
it’s fragile sun kissed promises
are slowly bleeding on our lawn

I reach out my hand to touch you
you were never really there
The illusion we had shattered
now broken beyond repair

You tried your best to love me
gave me everything you could
I loved you with all my heart
but that was never any good

I wish that we were much younger
and could tell ourselves the truth
But life can’t ever go backwards
and we’ve long said goodbye to youth

Each year we dragged into the next
a love left hanging by a thread
Every day it died a little more
until one day it was finally dead

After all that time now its over
a love exhausted, disappears
my hearts left barely beating now
instead of blood it’s full of tears

I know you’re tired of crying too
you have nothing left you want to say
So I’ve given up and I’ve given in
I guess I’ll just be on my way

It hurts worse that I can’t lose you
because you were never really mine
Best of luck to the next good man
that I’m certain you’re sure to find

No matter what roads we travel
sadness follows right along
like part of any real journey
or the best parts of a song

Maybe someday there’ll be laughter
and all our sorrow, it will fade
I hope you find what you’re missing
and you can chase this pain away
