My eyes are wet with tears

Some sadness is forever
Some sorrow is so deep
It'll come upon you in the day time
It'll come to you in your sleep

It's just a flash of memory
It's a vision of life and pain
It's a dream of long lost joy
That now claims no mortal name

It's hard to love a lover
Who's independent willful and strong
The whole world seems against them
Where is it they belong

But in our heart
As broken as it may be
But all I can say when it happens
Is thank you for loving me

Things left unsaid

Say them now

Say them to the stars
Say them to the sky
Say them with the tear drops
That fall when you cry

For the missed opportunities
For the by gone chances
Say them for the memories
And the shattered scattered romances

Say them for the winter
And for that coat given by a friend
Lest there not be a collar
To turn up

To the cold and freezing wind
