i need a tear

mp3 is located here

i live and i die by this pen in my hand
watching words fall out the end
stitching up time with a meaningless rhyme
and my spelling is bad
i need a tear
my blue disposition covers this page
i’m not afraid
to be afraid
i miss you i hate you then cross it all out
was it love or just time that we made

wishing you well from a water filled hole
i’ve got ink on my hands and its staining my soul
three thirty a.m. and i’m still in my clothes
i need a tear

i remember one day we said hello
you said i need you i said i know
a year got behind us and now you’re going away

my walk through confusion steps off this page
i sit down beside me and say
who would believe
i miss you i hate you…

wishing you well from a water filled hole
i’ve got ink on my hands and its staining my soul
three thirty a.m. and i’m still in my clothes
wishing you well from a water filled hole
i’ve got time on my hands and its staining my soul
three thirty a.m. and i’m still in my clothes
i need a tear
wishing you well from down in this hole
three thirty a.m. and i’m still in my soul
i wish i was there
no
i wish you were here
i need a tear
