You Cry

you cry, you smile, you open your arms out wide 
yet all they do is continue to cast you aside 
don't let them win and take your joy away 
brighten up, for tomorrows another day 

you cry, you smile, you open your arms out wide 
on your dreams,reality and hope you flawlessly glide 
don't let them die, for you can achieve anything 
just take your desires to the air on eagles wings 

in the distance of  reality and in the distance of time 
upon that tree of dreams I will continually climb 
to reach that branch where my hope clings on 
down to the root of despair, my misery has not gone 

you cry, you smile, you open your arms out wide 
can my broken heart and trust in you confide 
like the bleak midwinter, and the newness of spring 
like a new born lamb, my desires oh what joy it brings 

you cry, you smile, you open your arms out wide 
like the footprints of big foot, my aspirations glide 
in this cruel world your heart stands out 
beating nothing but pure love, without a shadow of a doubt 

in a never ending circle the mould is yet to break 
like an expectant mother in labour-how much more pain to take 
over in the yonder the sun begins to rise 
over in the distance my joy begins to prise 

you cry, you smile, you open your arms out wide 
the hatred I have for you, on a battlefield has died 
like a true soldier I fought a good fight 
like the kite runner, I chased after its flight 

you cry, you smile, you open your arms out wide 
I foolishly believed all the mutterings you lied 
I shall arise out of the darkness of night 
my strength will bring me into a newness of light 

its over now, I've resigned to the fact 
only I kept my side of our bargaining pact 
I loved, I lost, I lived and I saw 
all my hopes floating down life's closed door
