Tears

by Tiffany Layne
I’m sorry for the tears that flow right from my eyes
everytime the moment comes for us to say goodbye…
Don’t worry, it’s not that you’ve said something wrong,
It’s just that you’re like listening to my favorite song…
And I don’t want the verses to be done just yet,
And I can’t get the chorus out of my head…
And I want to play it again, and keep it in my ears,
And never let go of the way it makes me feel…
It’s so hard when I can never know just how long it will be
Until I can hear your voice again, and that’s what’s killing me
