Many Tears

Angela Crabtree 1982 (maine)

Many Tears

We have shared many tears and cried many cries.
We have shared the look of love and lust.
Our attraction it seems has become fatal yet we still linger
Broken hearts and broken bones don't stop
Late night visits to the hospital, hiding truth
No one says a word, not you, not I
Our love becomes undying and just
Can't seem to stay away, not you, not I,

We have shared many tears and cried many cries
We have shared love and loss
Our attraction is no longer on the mend
Running for our lives, you, and I
Broken hearts and broken bones, we hide
No one says a word, not you, not I
Our love is just and undying

Our attraction is no longer on the mend
Late night visits to the hospital hiding the truth
No one knows what is truly happening
We hide it all too well
Broken hearts and broken bones, we run
Take comfort in love that was never there
We have shared many tears and cried many cries
