I see your face
On the pillow next to mine
And I see your tears
Fall next to mine
And I see your fears
Well up in your eyes
And I pull you near
Like I?ve done so many times

And I?ll?. Wipe your tears away (at the end of the day)
And I?ll?..Wipe your tears away

And the seasons change
Just like our lives
There?s drought there?s rain
In everybody?s lives
And there?s doubt and pain
At the crossroads of your life
But we?ve walked this road
Oh so many times


And she walks through the door
Throws her purse on the floor and begins to cry
Looks at me and says why can?t something go right
I?m so tired of fighting this fight
Fighting this fight?

And the morning comes
She?s up before dawn
Doesn?t sleep that well
Nights are to damn long
Turns the shower on
And steps on inside
And the tears they come
That even water can not hide
