I Want Tears

How does saying nothin' at all become so loud?
When does the silence settle in?
Nothing's wrong but nothing's right
We hold our breath and close our eyes
Let's get out on that ice, it's wearin' thin

How did we get so low it don't even hurt?
Yeah, why are we so comfortably still?
Here we are pretending that we're doing fine
Just scratching at the surface, just gettin' by
Don't you think it's that time we feel something real?

I want tears, I want rain
If that's what leads me back to you
Even if that means feelin' the pain, that's what we gotta do
Let it fall apart, come on and break my heart
Yeah, break it right in two
'Cause I don't want to smile if that means losin' you
I want tears

The kind that you can't help and you can't hold back
The ones that are waitin', burstin' at the seams
Baby, can't we find the strength to just let go and make a change?
'Cause I need somethin' more to make me believe

I want tears, I want rain
If that's what leads me back to you
Even if that means feelin' the pain, that's what we gotta do
Let it fall apart, come on and break my heart
Yeah, break it right in two
'Cause I don't want to smile if that means losin' you

Remember what we use to have
Baby, don't you want it bad?
Baby, we can get it back

I want tears, I want rain
If that's what leads me back to you
Even if that means feelin' the pain, that's what we gotta do
Let it fall apart, come on and break my heart
Yeah, break it right in two
'Cause I don't want to smile if that means losin' you
I don't want to smile if that means losin' you
I want tears

How does saying nothing at all become so loud?

I wish I'd written this song. Why does nothing I write actually say what I'm feeling?
