Tear Becomes My Eye

IíVE BEEN SAYING GOODBYE TO THE PAST
THOUGH I DONíT THINK IT WILL LAST
CAUSE LATELY THINGS ARENíT GOING MY WAY

DIGGING IN THE BOXES
DIGGING THROUGH THE DIRT
GOING BACK IS AN IDEA
OF WHICH IíM BEGINNING TO FLIRT WITH
CAUSE LATELY I CANíT MAKE IT THROUGH THE DAY

OHH TEAR BECOMES MY EYE

SEE I HAVENíT ANY CLUE
AS TO HOW TO BREAK THE SEAM
HOW TO WAKE UP FROM THIS TERRIFYING DREAM
CAUSE LATELY IíM NOT SLEEPING
AND IíM NOT AWAKE

OHH TEAR BECOMES MY EYE

THE PASSING OF THE FABLE
AROUND THE DINNER TABLE
WAS HARDLY KEPT ALIVE
ON A SUNDAY MORNING DRIVE
STORE BOUGHT LOVE
IT HARDLY IS ENOUGH
IíVE GOT TO GIVE WHAT I GET
I GOT TO LEARN TO FORGET

FORGET ABOUT THE STORIES
FORGET ABOUT THE STONES
FORGET ABOUT THE TERROR
FORGET ABOUT THE BONES
CAUSE LATELY I CAN TASTE IT
AND ITíS DRIPPING IN OUR HOMES

OHH TEAR BECOMES MY EYE

IT SEEMS TO COMPLICATE THE SCENE
THIS MEDIOCRE LIFEíS A DREAM
AND IíD STEP OUT OF THE SHOE
THAT TIES ME UP WITH YOU
A FOSSILIZED TRADITION
A MODERN LIFE RENDITION
KEEPS US SLOW
I GOT TO LEARN TO LET GO

OHH TEAR BECOMES MY EYE
