one tear

one tear is too many for one heart to cry
you should be here at my side
but I understand the choice you made
and I will accept the blame
cause we need a hero in our story
and if I survive it will be me
I painted such a picture of our new life
if only you’d be my wife
but its all in 2d, none of its real
so I watch the paint peel
one tear is too many for this lonely man
how many more must I stand
you should be here instead of far away
if you were here, I know you would stay
cause we both need to stop wasting our time
and make use of the love between the lines
you’ve always been just out of reach
except in one writers heart
I know that forever I want you near
while i’m drowning in this one tear
one tear is just about all I can take
I cant handle another heartache
but out of respect i’ll leave you alone
await these feeling till they are gone
cause I have to stop crying for you
there are so many other thing I need to do
I hear there is always more fish in the sea
but i’m afraid you got the better of me
so i’m neither here nor there
if you should see me just ignore my one tear
