"Half These Tears" as written by and Kathleen Michelle Foster Hutch Harris....
take my plea and throw it into the sea
watch it sink and fall
watch the words dissolve my plea

take my lie and hammer it to the sky
for all to see, for all to see
for all to deny my lie

and i will still cry
if i know you're alright
i will still cry
if i know you're alright
i will still cry
if i know you're alright

take my hand and turn it into a candle
burn it from both ends
it'll never mend my end

suck my breath in
till there's nothing left
till i'm blue in the face
till i'm finished wasting my breath

and i will still cry
if i know you're alright
i will still cry
if i know you're alright
i will still cry
if i know you're alright

i will cry for two
half these tears for you
in joy for you
in joy for you

i will still cry
if i know you're alright

i will cry for two
half these tears for you
in joy for you
in joy for you

    General CommentIt looks to me like Hutch is singing about having broken off relations with a girl and then her rejecting his pleas to take him back...
