"Tears" as written by and Stephen Sinclair/joe Falsia....
I sit and hear you sleep
I don't want to go
You're there beside me
But you're so far away
I talk to you while you're asleep
You can't hear a word..you can hear everything

Tears are feelings we can't say
Tears mean that you care
Tears are mixed emotions
Tears are more than tears

The pouring rain from my eyes
Means too much to keep inside
I sit and watch you leave my life forever
I know you'll be gone so long
My last words are nothing

And I tell you I care, and nothing more
I can't say how I feel, so I cry
Tears are feelings we can't say
Tears mean that you care
Tears are mixed emotions
Tears are more than tears

It's the light behind the shadow
That sacred face behind the mask

    General Commentomigosh! this is one of the best Rufio songs! its shows how words have their limitations and how sometimes the only way to really express what you feel is to cry! my favorite line is "Tears are feelings we can't say" b/c that is like so true! when me and my bf broke up we both cried b/c we both didnt know what to say

    General CommentThis song means so much to me, they tell it like it is. No words can express how you feel when someone you care about isn;t in your life anymore, but tears can. In the song it say "the pooring rain from my eyes, it means to much to keep inside"is my favorite line. i think that line pertically means when you feel like you need to cry dont keep it in, because whatever you are crying about means a lot to you and you need to express it somehow.
