"million tears" as written by and Kasey Chambers....
Take my hand
Break my stride
Make me smile
For every time I've cried
Hold my heart
In the palm of your hand
Don't listen to it breakin'
Just listen to the band

Do you want to ride in my car?
It's parked out on the street
Or just stay with me a while
Before I fall asleep
Take these tears
Wash your skin
I'm havin' trouble breathin'
Since you walked in

My hands are tied
My head is reelin'
My eyes have cried
A million tears
From wishin' you were here

All my life
I've welcomed pain
I've made up more excuses
To bring it back again
Now I'm here
And I'll drink to the shame
I'll drink to the madness
That made me this way

My hands are tied
My head is reelin'
My eyes have cried
A million tears
From wishin' you were here

Take these tears
Wash your skin
I'm havin' trouble breathin'
Since you walked in

    General CommentThis song, to me, is about a guy who is breaking up with the girl. The girl is trying to stay strong because she knows that there is no way to get him back, no matter how much she cries. But she just wants him to know that she still loves him.

    General Commentto me this isn't neccessarily about wanting someone you once had, it could be about just wanting someone, and you can't see any chance of being with them. I first heard it on dawsons creek today and i love it already. Love Laura x

    General Commentyeah i reckon this song is about somebody who can't have the person they want. it seems also that they're always finding themselves in such situations, setting themselves up for heartbreak...
    "all my life
    i've welcomed pain
    i've made up more excuses
    to bring it back again "

    yeah

    General CommentI always thought of my friend when I heard this song, I dont necessarily believe its a "love" song, I thought maybe she was singing about haveing her friend there for here to help her ease her pain, thats what I always thought, I think this song is amazing, its so pretty

    General Commentthis is just my point of view but...i think this song is about a girl who is heart broken but she's found someone else...and she really cares for this person but she doesn't want to move on
    "all my life
    i've welcomed pain
    i've made up more excuses
    to bring it back again"
    She knows this guy can make her happy but she wants to be heartbroken for a while and just learn to deal. And she really does feel something for this guy but she just feels like she can't give him all he deserves right now and once she lets him go she realized what she lost and she regets it.

    just my 2 cents

    General CommentTo ME:

    Someone who is looking for someone that can be more of a support person because they have suffered with others before. Dealing with a broken heart is never nice. Or the person that they want. She might have been in a bad relationship and has been wishing and waiting for the right person to come along but her hands where tied....

    But then guy comes along, and he is exactly what she's looking for, but she might possibly expect too much from him.

    "Take these tears...wash your skin".

    My Hands Are Tied, My Head is Reelin, My Eyes Have Cried A million Tears" - Waiting and Wanting this person, but still she is sadened " all my life Ive welcomed Pain" so she stopped putting everything into a relationship, now she's in one and has decided that its all in the past, and is willing to have a go at the relationship again... and theres hope that it wont be like the previous relationship.

    She could have even been singing about needing someone to help and I can relate to the song ;) and its so nice.
