i saw your eyes and i didn't know what happened
but it stole my heart

i buried myself underneath the stars
looking towards the open sky
for a familiar face to answer my cry

i couldn't move or breathe
so i held on to everything
and made it worse when it was over
fifty five tears fell in silence

this happened every time i saw you
so i would walk away
hoping you wouldn't follow me

but you did

and i screamed with confusion
and screamed with anger
until you held my hurting heart
and the nights with violence move ever so fast

because i see your face
when my eyes close with the deepest pain
i'll pray that you'll hold me
and i'll pray that i can feel your arms around me
and when fifty-five tears fall in silence

i'll pray that you'll be here to wipe them away...
