are these tears what i really need?
Are These Tears What I Really Need?

Don’t ask me questions. Please just let me be.
This is my only plea.

No matter how much it’s needed,
Encouragement is useless for me and is quickly deleted.

You can’t tell what’s on my mind.
I am the only one who knows what truly lies inside.

Don’t ask me questions. Please just let me be.
This is my only plea.
What if I just feel like cryin’
tonight?
Maybe shedding these tears is what I need.
Please just let me be.

You constantly ask me what’s wrong.
You say I’ve been cryin’ all day long.

Then when I don’t tell you.
What do you do? You almost cry too.

I just want to be by myself.
In a few hours I’ll explain how I felt.

Don’t ask me questions. Please just let me be.
This is my only plea.
What if I just feel like cryin’
tonight?
Maybe shedding these tears is what I need.
Please just let me be.

I may not know why I am cryin’
But these tears just keep fallin’

Seems like I was fine a few hours ago
But now the tears overflow

Someone needs to stop this waterfall.
Now I know I need YOU most of all.

Even though I said, to let me be alone;
I can’t take it now that your gone.
I realize now that I need you by my side.
I am tired of being alone and tired of cryin’
tonight.
