The Well of Tears

July 15, 2007

Co-written with Stephen Bruce. No MP3 is available.

It seems you’ve sold your soul for a pocketful of gold
Everything you once believed, you’re ready to concede
You stay out of my way, but everything you say
Just serves to drive it through, you’re not the girl I knew

Everything is not as it appears as the ripples spread across the well of tears
I toss a 10p piece and wish the old you could be released, and that you were here
As daybreak nears, another droplet disappears
Into the well of tears
Have you lost your mind? Or just left it behind?
Where once you were so strong, now your principles have gone
The dirty dregs of day slowly drift away
And I wonder how it feels to abandon your ideals

Everything is not as it appears as the ripples spread across the well of tears
I toss a 10p piece and wish the old you could be released, and that you were here
As nightfall nears, another droplet disappears
Into the well of tears
