Cry

 

I donÕt remember her a whole lot, she was like a vacant parking lot

And his words and actions tore through me like wildfire on a prairie

In my dreams I walk down that dark hall and on the walls are the bodies

Of generations of women in my family, some are still alive but theyÕre dead inside

 

Chorus:

I use words to fill up space

To fill up the emptiness inside me

But there are no words for when IÕve got to cry

IÕve just have to open my mouth and cry

 

I come from a long line of secrecy, lies and shame

And I never had any words to name it until now

I want to run away from the truth of where I came from

And I can feel it in my bones, sometimes I feel like it owns me

 

Chorus:

I use words to fill up space

To fill up the emptiness inside me

But there are no words for when IÕve got to cry

IÕve just have to open my mouth and cry

 

And when I get in my car there sometimes I want to keep on driving

IÕm like a flower in the desert with a strong will to keep surviving

 

Chorus:
And I use words

To fill up space

To fill up the emptiness

But there are no words for when IÕve got to cry

IÕve just got to open my mouth and cry
