I stand on a mountain top 
I watch the world from afar
I see the pain in you rising
Smothering a once bright star
I wish I could harness your tears
I would put them in a glass jar
The pain would be trapped in this jar forever
It would never get free to find you where you are
Then you would be able to find your happiness and let love flow in
Just keep your heart ajar
