Crown of Tears

These words come from the bottom of my heart
then, it'll be your choice to either stay or depart
I've been pulling on your sleeve for too long
making myself believe that nothing's wrong
I have to find you, and tell you I need you
all my tears of fear are spread on a piece of tissue
I continue telling myself it'll be the last time
because crying for you has become a rhyme
Mother Teresa said to give and love until it hurt
I'm hurting and my heart is in agony alert
Marilyn Monroe said I don't need anyone who doesn't need me
It's hard to believe but I can also agree
Now, go ahead and turn around, walk towards the door
that's what you've been good at; I refuse to implore
Along the way the crown of tears will fall,
and it will only be me standing up tall
