Forcing the tears out of my eyes
I sit and think about all the lies
The lack of grace and hope that is me
Is this who I'm supposed to be?

With shaking hands I try to write
But reality hits me with a sharp bite
The truth I write will never be
It is lost within me

And tears never come soon enough
And others can't see, no they can't see
Tears never come soon enough
No they can't see, they can't see
Are they blind, to all the sorrow?
Are they deaf, to all the cries?
Are they the greats, of tomorrow?
Are we doomed, to live and die?

Will I sing, until they can't hear me?
Will I write, words they can't see?
Will I die, still under this veil?
Will I work to no prevail?

Will I forever, go unseen?
Will no one ever know where I've been?
Will my work be in vain?
Will I end up slain??

And tears never come soon enough
And others can't see, no they can't see
Tears never come soon enough
No they can't see, they can't see
Are they blind, to all the sorrow?
Are they deaf, to all the cries?
Are they the greats, of tomorrow?
Are we doomed, to live and die?

Oh my God, please touch me
Oh my soul, please rise
Oh my love, don't leave me
Oh my heart, it dies

And I am left alone
Just bleeding on the street
No one cares to meet
The truth in my eyes
Dispel all the lies
Please don't ignore me

We can be so much more
We can be so much more
We are given so much more
We can be so much more

And tears never come soon enough
And others can't see, no they can't see
Tears never come soon enough
No they can't see, they can't see
Are they blind, to all the sorrow?
Are they deaf, to all the cries?
Are they the greats, of tomorrow?
Are we doomed, to live and die?

And I am left alone
Just bleeding on the street
No one cares to meet
The truth in my eyes
Dispel all the lies
Don't ignore me...
