So easy to cry Now that I’ve lost you So easy to cry Now that I know we’re through Even though I know you’re gone, my tears keep flowing And its hard to keep this broken heart from showing So easy to cry Now that I’ve lost you So easy to cry Now that I’m all alone I should never be apart from you But my tears won’t touch the heart of you It’s so hard on me But it’s so easy to cry over you So easy to cry Now that I’ve lost you So easy to cry Now that I know we’re through Now and then I drop my guard and stop pretending Then my teardrops flow like rivers never ending So easy to cry Now that I’ve lost you So easy to cry Now that I’m all alone Though it tears me up to part from you All my tears won’t touch the heart of you It’s so hard on me But it’s so easy to cry over you

written Nov 20, 2005 revised Jan 30, 2006 (bridge & lyrics) revised July 4, 2012 (lyrics) She’d rather not drink coffee all alone every morning She’d rather have him standing there beside her when she goes walking She’d rather not keep wondering if he might be calling her this evening But she’d really rather be the other woman than nothing at all I told her, darlin’, you don’t have to settle for what he gives you He’s got another life and if he’s leaving, he would have told you You shouldn’t sit around and wait for just another man who don’t respect you Would you really rather be the other woman than nothing at all? She just smiled and tidied up her kitchen to picture perfect He don’t have to marry me, she said, I can’t expect that As long as, every now and then, he makes me feel like someone who’s important She poured herself another cup of coffee, though she was shaking I couldn’t figure out if she was angry, or close to crying I’d rather not admit it, but I think I understood what she was feeling And I think I’d rather be the other woman than nothing at all I’d really rather be the other woman than nothing at all.

There’s a black hole in the highway It hurts my head to hit it every day But it’s just too small so they won’t come to fill it in and make it smooth again I can’t help it but it bothers me There’s a black mark on my white dress I don’t think it will ever fade away And it wears me down and I wonder what would ever make it white again I can’t help it but it bothers me There’s a black line on my front door I see it in my memory every day And it won’t come off even though I have tried and tried to make it clean again I can’t help it but it bothers me There’s a black hole in my memory of how it feels to get away from pain But I can’t go back and there’s nothing to fill my soul and make it right again I can’t help it but it bothers me

If I apologize, will you forgive? If I say I'm sorry for the way that I've lived Think of the good times when our love was new I'm saying I'm sorry, I apologize to you If I apologize, can we go on? Please don't believe that our love is all gone We had so much together, forgive me my sin I'm saying I'm sorry, I need you back again I know that I'm guilty, I'll take all the blame And I'll try to do better, would you do the same? If I should promise, will you agree? That we'll stay together and you'll never leave Let's try to forget all the pain we've been through I'm saying I'm sorry, I apologize to you I loved you much more than I ever knew I'm saying I'm sorry, I apologize to you

(written October 19, 2006) If I’ve ever hurt you bad, let’s pretend I didn’t If you’ve ever hurt me back, I know you didn’t mean it If it’s useless to remember I will forget When my skin is cut, it takes a little while to heal it When the scar finally fades, you can hardly see it When it’s useless to remember I will forget Forget Why live on the bad side Why put salt in the wound Why remember the bad times Just remember the good If I ever break your heart, let’s go back before it If you ever make me cry, they’ll dry before you know it If it’s useless to remember I will forget Forget

If you kiss me, I won’t have to speak If you touch me, I won’t have to feel But if you ask me, I’ll have to say I’m not okay If you joke with me, I won’t have to think If you dance with me, I won’t have to sit But if you ask me, I’ll have to say I’m not okay Take me, make me forget Take me outside my head Save me from feeling Take all my pain away If you lay with me, I won’t have to lie If you carry me, I won’t have to try But if you ask me, I’ll have to say I’m not okay Take me, make me forget Take me outside my head Save me from feeling Take all my pain away If you hold me, I won’t have to stand If you catch me, I won’t have to land But if you ask me, I’ll have to say I’m not okay I’m not okay

When I was young and lost You were so wise and strong But when I gave my trust You were already gone Why don’t you take off that mask And take a day to explain I just don’t believe you’ll have something to say Anything to say Anytime soon When I looked up to you You looked away and turned your back A little girl's love refused A lifetime of questions passed Why don’t you take off that mask And take away all the pain I just don’t believe you’ll have something to say Anything to say Anytime soon Why do these ties keep on pulling us apart? And when will the time wear down that wall around your heart? Now you are old and lost And time is pressing on your back There must be a way to touch With more than a passing glance I’ll have to take off my mask And search my soul till it hurts I’ll look into the glass And I’ll take stock of my words I’ve got to believe I’ll have something to say Anything to say Sometime soon

So easy to cry Now that I’ve lost you So easy to cry Now that I know we’re through Even though I know you’re gone, my tears keep flowing And its hard to keep this broken heart from showing So easy to cry Now that I’ve lost you So easy to cry Now that I’m all alone I should never be apart from you But my tears won’t touch the heart of you It’s so hard on me But it’s so easy to cry over you So easy to cry Now that I’ve lost you So easy to cry Now that I know we’re through Now and then I drop my guard and stop pretending Then my teardrops flow like rivers never ending So easy to cry Now that I’ve lost you So easy to cry Now that I’m all alone Though it tears me up to part from you All my tears won’t touch the heart of you It’s so hard on me But it’s so easy to cry over you
