Crystal tears fall from sad eyes,
made of pain she held inside,
numbness stole the need to cry,
shook her head and simply sighed.
Shook her head and simply sighed,
watch as years migrate through time,
deep within, pieces had died,
every time she failed to climb.
Every time she failed to climb,
motivation was declined,
turn sweet goals to bitter lime,
newfound fears fog up her mind.
Newfound fears fog up her mind,
hopeful heart transformed old sights,
force bad thoughts to become kind,
gathered tears light up so bright.
Gathered tears light up so bright,
bright future will always rise,
happiness deep inside shines,
crystal tears fall from blessed eyes.
