Time Out To Cry ©

All alone at the end of the day

The time, just a little past ten

Evening has come for a short stay

It’s time for her sorrow again

The smile on her face she’s been holding

Suddenly, she lets fall

And the feelings begin unfolding

She comes out of her personal wall

As the world settles down for the night

She awakens herself from a dream

And the girl they all thought had her life going right

Is no longer the image she’d seem

She takes off the disguise she’s been wearing

Then opens her heart to the truth

Behind closed doors she’s not caring

About life or love in her youth

So she sits by the mirror spilling tears

And cries by herself in the dark

A whole day of acting like she has no fears

Takes a lot from an empty heart

Inside she’s lonely and sad

But acts like she’s fine in the day

Revealing her misery, secretly wishing she had

A friend, or a promise to stay

She’s ashamed of the truth she’s been keeping

Living her hours in daylight a lie

And this is the reason for in darkness she’s weeping

Taking time out from each day to cry
