Hold Back The Tears

Hold Back The Tears

Hold back the tears
Just for a while
Let me see the beauty
That lies within your face
Before the tracks of tears
Lay a mask of vulnerability

I hear your heart beat
Each beat lost in time
Fear becomes the echo
Emitting from within
I feel you growing cold
With each second the beat fades

Don’t let your tears fall
Into those shaking hands
Hands that seek to scar the skin
Scars that once ran crimson
I tell you this I bled for you
Upon the the cross I took your shame

So hold back the tears
Let me see your naked face smile
There will be a time to share your pain
Yet for now just know I am here
Holding your hand
Whispering sweet lullabies

So hold back the tears
For I am here tonight
