Noone Crying Over Me

NO-ONE CRYING OVER ME

I can't cry and I should cry
Over what's never been
There should be tears for all the years
Look what they've done to me
And in the fading light I'm letting go tonight
No-one's crying over me

Covered up, I've covered up
To hide my shame
And it's broken me, I'm broken
Choking inside these chains
Fear is all there is, just like it always is
No-one's crying over me

And as I let go
Can't help but see it
Just like a picture painted on the wall
And I am feeling
God help me, leaving
No-one crying, painted on the wall

Beautiful, I was beautiful
But it's all gone by
And who would know, who wants to know
After all this time
All that I could be, staring back to see
No-one's crying over me

And as I let go
Can't help but see it
Just like a picture painted on the wall
And I am feeling
God help me, leaving
No-one crying, painted on the wall

I've said it all, it all before
No-one was listening
Reached for the sky to hide the lie
Nobody's listening
Now I don't believe, why would I believe
No-one's crying over me

No-one's crying over me
