It breaks my heart when I look into your hazel eyes
they’re full of such sadness and unspeakable pain
it breaks my heart when I look into your tear filled eyes
maybe I caused it
maybe I’m the blame
If I look into the mirror
would I see the person you see when You look at me.
I try my best to be the better of the two
maybe I should look closer at myself
than looking down so far on you.
I know that no one is perfect
I know no one can sooth your pain
but I wonder if you would just listen
to my reasons
if you would just let me explain
maybe I could suture your wounds
maybe I could lessen your heartache
for it is a cold cruel world out there alone
and it will never be the same
as when I could hold you close
as when you let me dry your tears
maybe I want too much from you
that you just are not ready to give.
It breaks my heart every time I look into your hazel eyes
Hands balled up into fist
a volcano ready to explode
I see such sadness and pain
even if I do not know the reason
even if you cannot explain.
no matter what
I am always here.
