Unspoken Tear
Lyrics
Unspoken Tear
Verse#1:
Shining on Wednesday, Low luster on Thursday,
Saw no need to check in Friday,
Had to face the crowd,
But, I shied away.
Verse#2
Took another look inside,
Ain't it strange how we lose our pride,
Had to go on driving,
But the wheels weren't turning,
Got something in my eye and it's burning,

Chorus:
It's the unspoken tear,
The one I'm keeping to myself,
It puts me on the razor's edge of fear,
It's the unspoken tear.

Verse#3

My time is running out all over,
Starting to shake, it's getting colder,
Like one leaf missing from a four-leaf clover,
It won't take much to push me over.

Chorus:
It's the unspoken tear,
The one I'm keeping to myself,
It puts me on the razor's edge of fear,
It's the unspoken tear.

Refrain: Maybe, I'll just check out Tuesday
