  • How I
    How I
    Weep for the loss
    And it creeps down my chin
    For the heart and the hair
    And the skin and the air
    That swirls itself around the bare

    How I weep
    How I weep
    How I weep and I sleep
    And I march and I dance
    And I sing and I laugh
    And I laugh and I laugh
    But inside
    But inside
    Inside I weep
    Inside I weep
    And I weep for a loss
    That's so deep
    That it hardens and turns into stone

    There it stays
    And rolls through bones
    Till they crumble
    And the earth doesn't spin
    It's got no way to win
    And the stars stare down with sad clown faces
    And they taunt me
    They taunt me
    So I run and I run, and I run and I run
    But I've nowhere to go except into the sun

    And I weep for the loss and the loss weeps for me
    The loss weeps for me
    Then it whacks me straight into my stomach at night
    It's a hard blow to take with all of its might
    And it tries to be sorry, it tries to be sweet
    Then it runs out the door as if on two feet

    And I stand there and wonder when will I be free
    Then I realized I held it, it never held me
    It had to hurt me to finally be gone
    'Cause I made the mistake of dragging it on
    And I wonder what kind of person am I
    Who weeps for a loss but can't tell it goodbye

    How I
    How I weep
    How I weep
    How I weep

    How I
    How I weep
    How I weep
