The River Cries

The River Cries 

The river cries every night
with the ancient wind  
the moon had gave out a dimmer light 
of a sad cold night
with no love in sight   
I'm coming home with no one to hold  
My love go tired of me 
and put the fair out
I could see his crying lying eyes
what we had ended years ago 
in the rain and snow
of long ago
I don't like to run from my pains
but I did that day
that was no fun 
Good morning where ever you are 
I'm so sorry I had broken your heart  
I know this was not the way it should be 
the river turned cold another year
while the sky hold memories 
in gloomy gray of you and me
I still can see the hurt in your lying eyes
when I told you goodbye
you thought you was hurting me
but really that could never be
I wanted to be free
when you started turning on me
we had loved once and it was sweet
when you was good to me
But now My heart morns 
each and every day  
So Goodnight 
good day 
I will come out and sing 
I will dance for a new romance
I will pray for more better day 
No more tears in my eyes
I'm glad we end.
