Crying Glass Tears

We were everything to everyone,
And we were everything to us.
Fresh air to our fresh lips.
No pain, no jealousy, no fuss.

I saw beautiful black flakes then,
And I see disillusioning petals now.
My vision is blurred with nothing.
My heart is gone; tell me how.

You are nothing to me now
Although I cry glass tears.
You have not hurt me, my love.
I no longer hear your voice in my ears.

I wish for you the success you deserve,
Although I once wished to be your dream.
I know that I only brought you down.
Baby, sometimes all I want to do is scream.

The pain drips down my face as I let you go.
Finally, finally, I brush you away.
First romances are bound to end in hate.
Even innocent lovers must pay.
