All you asked from me was an apology
And I turned away engulfed in my pride
Several days of no reply, pseudo truths and countless lies
I carried on without a care

Inside your heart, your most tender part,
Seems you'd lost the strength to lift you up far from the pain
When I came home that night feeling all was all right
I just couldn't help but see and hear the cloud full of cold rain

And your tears
They fall upon your face
And I could see that I'd fallen from grace
And your tears
They echo through the dark
The sound of your tears that fall
It's the sound of breaking hearts, the sound of your tears.

How could I neglect to see this injury?
The knife I plunged it in, and twisted and turned it
I'd tell myself that you don't care, justify that you're unfair
My bridge to you, I lit it and burned it.

See the man in me full of misery
Now I come unto you, my love to unchain this harness
Open your arms to receive, it's the turning of a leaf
Let me help to mend the heart I broke in all of my darkness.

And your tears
They fall upon your face
And I could see that I'd fallen from grace
And your tears
They echo through the dark
The sound of your tears that fall
It's the sound of breaking hearts, the sound of your tears.
