I've been trying for hours just to

think of what exactly to say

I thought I'd leave you with a letter

or a fiery speech

Like when an actor makes an exit

at the end of a play

I've been dying for hours trying to fill

up all the holes with some sense

I'd like to know how you faded and

you threw it away

I'd like to give you all the reasons

and what everything meant


Well I could tell you goodbye or

maybe see you around

With just a touch of a sarcastic"Thanks"

We stated out with a bang and

at the top of the world

Now the guns are exhausted and

the bullets are blanks...

And everything's blank


If I could only find the words then

I would write it all down

If I could only find a voice I would speak

It's there in my eyes, oh can't you

see me tonight

Come on and look at me and

Read 'Em And Weep


If I could only find the words then

I would write it all down

If I could only find a voice I would speak

It's there in my eyes, oh can't you

see me tonight

Come on and look at me and

Read 'Em And Weep


I've been whispering softly trying to

build a cry up to a scream

We let the past slip away and put

the future on hold

Now the present is nothing but a

hollowed out dream

And I've been dreaming forever

hoping something would eventually come

I saw your eyes in the dark and

I felt your kiss on my lips

I traced your body in the air until

the bodies were numb


Well I could tell you goodbye or

maybe see you around

With just a touch of a sarcastic

"Thanks"

But now the rooms are all empty,

the candles are dark

The guns are exhaused and

the bullets are blanks...

And everything's blank


If I could only find the words

then I would write it all down

If I could only find a voice I would speak

It's there in my eyes, oh can't you see me tonight

Come on and look at me and

Read 'Em And Weep


It's there in my eyes and comin' straight

from my heart

It's running silent and angry and deep

It's there in my eyes and it's all I can say

Come on and look at me and

Read 'Em And Weep


(Read 'em and Weep)

For all the hours we'll be spending alone

(Read 'em and Weep)

For the dreams we'll ignore

(Running silent and deep)

And all the promises we promised to keep

They won't be kept anymore


(Read 'em and Weep)

For the magic that our bodies had made

(Read 'em and Weep)

For the blood that we've lost

(Running silent and deep)

And all those secrets that we somehow betrayed

For whatever the cost


(Read 'em and Weep)

For those memories still alive in the bed

(Read 'em and Weep)

For the lies we believed

(Running silent and deep)

And all the thing that will have never been said

Why don't you look at me and read 'em and weep

Come on and look at me and read 'em and...


It's there in my eyes and coming straight

from my heart

It's running silent and angry and deep

It's there in my eyes, it's all I can say

Come on and look at me and

Read 'Em And Weep
