Black Tears

She’s the last one out of bed
She’s the first to shine
She’ll tell him ’bout her dreams
But not what’s on her mind
He should know her by now
But he doesn’t even try
Or he’d hear how she cries at night

Crying black tears
On the pillow where she lay
All the make-up
Her cryin’s washed away
But he doesn’t really see
And he doesn’t ever hear
So he doesn’t understand black tears
No he doesn’t understand black tears

She waits for him to sleep
Before one tear falls
If he ever knew he wouldn’t
Understand at all
Is it needing his love
Or missing his touch
All she knows is she cries too much

She has to be strong
That’s the way it’s gotta be
If only take the time
To watch her sleep
She hides all the pain
And smiles through her tears
And that’s how it’s been for years

No he doesn’t understand black tears
