hey, why ya cryin’?

hey, why ya
cryin’? all i
said were words,
nothing more than
sounds thrown
against you to
break you down to
see my point of view.

hey, why ya
cryin’? all i
brought up were
memories,
nothing more than
parts of our past
you’ve been trying
to forget, but
can’t now
that i’m
slinging them about
like fire,
trying to temper you
, but i keep the
flame too hot, so
you have no choice
but to melt before me.

hey, why ya
cryin’? all we’re
doing is continuing
what we saw our
parents do, despite
promises to the
contrary, but we
both know promises
are not kept unless
vowed, and we
never bothered to…

hey, why ya
cryin’? i promise
i won’t do this again,
but i can’t
guarantee that
promise can be kept
depending on
how you make me feel.

it’s not like
you give me every minute
i ask for, no, it’s
not like you give me
every minute i ask for, no,
it’s not like
you do.

i got money in the bank and i'm alright
for the birds
