A word to the wise is unnecessary. It's the stupid ones that need the advice. -Bill Cosby


Tears are like rain
When they fall.
Tears are like ice
When they fall.
Tears are like streams
When they fall.

When your tears fall, it makes me sad.
When your tears fall, I feel bad.
When your tears fall, it makes me cry.
When your tears fall, I feel like I’m falling from so very high.

Tears are like rain
When they fall.
Tears are like ice
When they fall.
Tears are like streams
When they fall.

When your tears fall, are they because of fear?
When your tears fall, can you help me make it clear?
When your tears fall, are they because of anger?
When your tears fall, can you sense that danger?

Tears are like rain
When they fall.
Tears are like ice
When they fall.
Tears are like streams
When they fall.

When your tears fall, I want to help.
When your tears fall, I need to get even a small clue.
When your tears fall, I need to know what’s wrong.
When your tears fall, I need to know why and how long.

Tears are like rain
When they fall.
Tears are like ice
When they fall.
Tears are like streams
When they fall.

When your tears fall, you see that past life.
When your tears fall, who is it that wields the knife?
When your tears fall, I know you feel cold and lost.
When your tears fall, you can now feel warm without great cost.

Tears are like rain
When they fall.
Tears are like ice
When they fall.
Tears are like streams
When they fall.

Tears are always like this,
When they fall.

You don't have to cry to feel those tears. The one you want to protect doesn't have to be hurt for us to want to know what's wrong.
