"Tears Are in Your Eyes" as written by and Ira David Kaplan Georgia Mia Hubley....
You tell me summer's here
And the time is wrong
You tell me winter's here and your days...
Are getting long

Tears are in your eyes... tonight
You tell me that you haven't
Slept in days
You tell me sleeping only makes you tired...

Tears are in your eyes... tonight
Tears are in your eyes... every night

Although you don't believe me you're strong
Darkness always turns into the dawn
And you won't even remember this for long...
When it ends alright

Please tell me how...you know tomorrow...staring at your shoes
Tears are in your eyes...every night
Tears are in your eyes...every night
Tears are in your eyes...tonight

    General Commentthis is from the perspective of someone who is trying to be there for a friend/loved one who is having a hard time. it's hard to see someone have such disbelief in him/herself, when you see all the potential that that person has.

    Song MeaningThis is a consolation song about a person that has lost spring curls. This person is obviously stricken with grief because the oppressor/singer has forbidden the growth of new spring curls, especially during the winter seasons. Here, the oppressor is attempting to offer solace, but it is overtly done in a mocking tone. Thus, the victim continues to cry...every night.

    General CommentI like this song, my sister and I were going through a tough time at home, and I remember talking when this song was on. Memories make the best songs.

    General Commentcute song. shows how people get so caught up in their problems and be so upset but will mostly always turn 'alright' again and realise that they were being stupid and then forget.

    General CommentI like catherineks post, spot on for me. Personally this song means a whole lot. I have a dear friend who is going through a very tough time..she is someone i also have very strong feelings for and she is conflicted between "head and heart" in regards to myself :-(. She also lives in another town :'(. Anyway..

    The "Although you don't believe me, you are strong.." really struck me the first time i heard it as i have said those exact words to her before. As i am sure many have in similar circumstances.

    She sent me this song over Messenger.

    General CommentI love this song. It really helps me when I'm down. And when I'm not, it reminds me to be kind to those who are.
