  • You've been suffering
    Hiding your pain
    Unshed tears on the edge
    "Just water under the bridge" you say

    Is it too late
    To make myself
    A safe place
    I could not see
    The dangers
    The sacrifices
    You were making

    Hurt you
    Hurt me
    Hurt you
    Never meant to hurt you
    Hurt me
    I need
    To make myself
    A safe place
    For you
    To cry baby
    Cause sometimes
    Big boys they need to cry

    So we built you some wings
    To help you to flee
    From your demanding
    Dark Angel
    And me

    Is it too late
    To make myself
    A safe place
    I went too far
    When we flew too close
    To our star

    It hurt you
    Hurt me
    Hurt you
    Never meant to hurt you
    Hurt me
    I need
    To make myself
    A safe place
    For you
    To cry baby
    To cry baby
    Cause sometimes
    Big boys they need to cry
    Cause sometimes
    Big boys they need to cry Writer/s: Tori Amos
