Today, We Cry
In her eyes she seems so distant,
she seems so far away.
I want to make her better,
but I'm not sure what to say.
And so we sit in silence,
I know he's on her mind.
I wish it didn't happen,
I wish we could rewind.
He should not have left her waiting,
should have known that he would die.
Somehow he should be here,
he should not have made her cry.
Why did THAT car crash?
Why the one with him inside?
Why did they have to go so fast?
Leave me here to wonder why?
I try to find the words,
to tell her that I'm sorry.
I want to say it badly,
just tell her not to worry.
But I know that isn't right,
and I know it isn't true.
She'll never be the same,
and I don't know what to do.
I know I'm her best friend,
I guess that way I should.
If my death could relieve her pain,
then she should know I would.
How could the guy I knew so well,
be here, then gone the next?
Just wondering how this could be,
has left me truely vexed.
I know that for my friends sake,
I cannot drop a tear.
But I can't seem to control that,
And this I really fear.
And when she sees me crying,
will she finally break down too?
What's running though her mind?
I really wish I knew!
Today I lost a friend,
one I cared for very much.
More than she could ever know,
yet she will never know of such.
Today a friend of mine lost her love,
and though she doesn't know.
Today I lost my love too,
though I can't let that show.
I look up to her eyes again,
and she looks up to mine.
She knows now I've betrayed a friend,
I think she's found out why.
I try to say I'm sorry,
but again I just cannot.
and finally I let go,
on my cheeks the tears are hot.
And as I begin to walk away,
I feel a hand on mine.
She forces me to look at her,
her eyes, they seem so kind.
A smile pierces painfully,
across her face to me.
She knows just what I've done,
Yes now she finally sees.
"It's okay," she smiles again,
"together we'll make it through."
"No matter what you are my friend,
together we'll know what to do."
I feel confused a moment,
and then I see what she sees.
And as I sit there crying,
I mumble out "I'm sorry."
Although today we both lost someone,
who meant the same to us.
Knowing we still have eachother,
today, that seems enough.
