Crying Shame

Love is as young
As the human eye
It doesn’t reach farther
Than you’ll try
It only gets to the farthest light
That you lit

Fighting for the love
That will not remain
I don’t know
What to say
You should have been there

She was young
And you were wise
She didn’t know
And you didn’t cry
Why did I lie
You should have been there

Because it was a crying shame
Tears were gone
And nothing remained
Crying shame
Love was dismissed
And peace had gone home
Nothing was there
But the battered bone
War was lost
Love was beaten at a cost
Beaten at a cost

While down in the dumps
With no one to hold
Did you lose your mind
Or worse your soul
Where’s the guy I used to know
Or is he even still there

She was young
And you were wise
She didn’t know
And you didn’t cry
Why did I lie
You should have been there

Cause it was a crying shame
Tear were lost
And nothing remained
Crying shame
Love was beaten
Like a battered bone
While worse
You went home
While she lay there

Tears were taken out to the battlefield
And you
Tried
Tried
Tried again
But that didn’t get you home
Nothing was there but the battered bone

Because love is as young
As the human eye
It doesn’t reach farther
Than you’ll try
It only gets to the farthest light
That you lit

And your light doesn’t shine too bright
You’ve got to
Try
Try
Try again
But that didn’t get him home
