I promised you I’d never bring you tears
My loving you has brought you lonely tears
I have no answers to those darkest fears
I promised I’d give you all that I can
My heart’s longing to be all that it can
But our love, it was not destiny’s plan
To see you cry, it broke my heart in two
Each tear from your eyes ripped my soul in two
You told me to leave what else could I do?
You pushed me away into the cold night
Preferring to dwell in the dark of night
And I could do nothing to make it right
You pushed me away, I wanted to stay
With old words of love you could never say
