The Heart Behind Those Eyes...
by Sweet  Girl

You look away- that smile dies
You're so confused- I hear your cries.
You try to explain- you try to believe
You know what to do- you try to leave.

Every word you say- strangles my heart
I try not to break- not to fall apart.
I just want to grab you- and make you see
This heart you own- inside of me.

Just turn around- as Happiness dies
Show me the Heart... behind those eyes.
I want to see- I need to know
The way it looks- before you go.

The words you say- conflict with the beat
I look through your eyes- so warm and sweet.
You want to stay- so, please, don't go
You're killing me- but I'll try not to show.

I want to sleep- inside your soul
You make me complete- you make me whole.
The beautiful rose- once proud to bloom
Now shedding it's petals- on top of Love's tomb.

I sit in the dark- with so many "Why's"
Just show me the Heart... behind those eyes.
Let me see- that dream we shared
Comfort me- I'm torn and scared.

I feel your tears- it's starting to rain
I lose myself- through all the pain.
I'm begging for you- just do this for me
Walk up to a mirror- so you can see.

Is anything left?- Is something alive?
Left there to struggle- while you take five?
Look deep inside- you know it's there
Under the smile- you use to wear.

Listen real close- to Love that cries...
Listen to the Heart... behind those eyes.
