Tears For You

My tears for you cascade like rain
hurt confusion from my mirror does peer
I fail to wash away my pain

My heart by you has just been slain
but the reason still unclear
my tears for you cascade like rain

My bleeding soul does slowly drain
with every shedding tear
I fail to wash away my pain

Sounding like some haunting refrain
your words are all I hear
my tears for you cascade like rain

In growing shadows I have lain
all alone the dark I fear
I fail to wash away my pain

Tell me how do I live again
with you no longer near?
My tears for you cascade like rain
I fail to wash away my pain
