Tears

She’s got a tear in her eye
A boy she liked had done her wrong
And broke her tender heart

They’re the tears I can’t dry
Because he lied and made her promises
Then ripped her world apart

I can’t handle when she cries

Because she’s my baby, loving girl
Her mom and I brought her in this world
And for all the days that I live
There’ll be these boys I can’t forgive
Because this dad… can’t dry
The tears… in his daughter’s… eyes

She’s got drenched bloodshot eyes
Why do boys do what they do
By telling girls all these lies

I guess it’s no surprise
She’s a catch, any boy would be lucky
To be the reason for her cries…but

I can’t handle when she cries

Because she’s my baby, loving girl
Her mom and I brought her in this world
And for all the days that I live
There’ll be these boys I can’t forgive
Because this dad… can’t dry
The tears… in his daughter’s… eyes

And if he comes back to tell her more
He can speak, but I’ll even the score
He’ll be sorry for ripping apart her world
Because he forgot that she’s my little girl

I can’t handle when she cries

Because she’s my baby, loving girl
Her mom and I brought her in this world
And for all the days that I live
There’ll be these boys I can’t forgive
Because this dad… can’t dry
The tears… in his daughter’s… eyes

Artist's Description

My daughter, a junior in High School , was getting her nails done yesterday for the Senior Prom tonight. She was going with her boyfriend, her first boyfriend. He called her while getting her nails done and ripped her heart out by cancelling and breaking up with her. The money spent on preparation means nothing. The tears in her eyes mean everything. These are the words that were trying to get out of my heart, so I don’t go there and rip his head off.
