Read 'Em and Weep
I've been tryin for hour just to think of what exactly to say I thought I leave you with a letter or a fiery speech Like when an actor makes an exit at the end of a play And I've been dying for hours trying to fill up all the holes with some sense I like to know why you gave up and threw it away I like to give you all the reasons and what everything meant Well, I can tell you goodbye or maybe see you around With just a touch of sarcastic thanks We started out with a bang And at the top of the world Now the guns are exhausted And the bullets are blanks And everything's blank [Chorus:] If I could only find the words Then I would write it all down If I could only find the voice I would speak Oh its there in my eyes Oh can't you see me tonight Come on and look at me And read 'em and weep [Chorus] I've been whispering softly Trying to build a cry up to a scream We let the past slip away And put the future on hold Now the present is nothing but a hollowed out dream And I've been dreaming forever Hoping something would eventually come I saw your eyes in the dark I felt your kiss on my lips I traced your body in the air 'Til the bodies were numb Well, I could tell you goodbye Or maybe see you around With just a touch of a sarcastic thanks But now the rooms are all empty The candles are dark The guns are exhausted And the bullets are blank And everything is blank [Chorus] Oh it's there in my eyes And coming straight from my heart It's running silent and angry and deep Oh it's there in my eyes And it's all I can say Come on and look at me And read 'em and weep
