"World Without Tears" as written by and Lucinda Williams....
[Chorus]
If we lived in a world without tears
How would bruises find
The face to lie upon
How would scars find skin
To etch themselves into
How would broken find the bones

If we lived in a world without tears
How would heartbeats
Know when to stop
How would blood know
Which body to flow outside of
How would bullets find the guns

If we lived in a world without tears
How would misery know
Which back door to walk through
How would trouble know
Which mind to live inside of
How would sorrow find a home

[Chorus: x2]

How would broken find the bones
How would broken find the bones

    General CommentThis has some of the must painful lyrics I've even heard... but in a good way. Its saying if we live without tears we'd be truly happy... all this stuff happens because we're sad... I can't put into words what this song means to me. I can't believe no one else commented on this song.

    General CommentEvil, sadness... love, kindness... the age-old axiom of never being able to know love if there never was hate...
    Amazing song and lyric.
