Every Tear That You Wipe Away

from by Yuki Yuki Yasumi



I couldn't help but to be senseless
In the moment of your distress.
Sometimes It's so hard to find the words to say.
If I'd have know I'd been so selfish
I might have saw you drowning helpless
But, I wasn't the one there to save the day.

It's now obvious, I see
Your eyes belong to him, not me.
But if you ever change your mind
You'll know where I'll be.

Diving for every tear that you wipe away.
Waiting to catch you when you fall
If shall ever come the day.
Standing by every moment that you slip away.
Won't make the same mistakes again
If you ever come my way.

It's true that my thoughts were careless.
This vanity makes me powerless.
I thought that a song could sweep you away.
When all you wanted was my presence
I was infatuated by your essence
But, I wasn't there for you day by day.

I'm hoping and waiting
Despite the fact that despair consumes me.
Looking for answers
Despite the fact that I am getting nowhere.
I'm looking for answers
In all the wrong places.
Somehow I'm still convinced
That you'll come back when you see me... (fall).
