about

This song's about someone who broke my heart.

lyrics

i've been known to sing the blues
i've been known to cry
when life is a mess and there's clouds overhead
when it rains it pours inside

but i'm not going to stand here and lie
no i'm not going to stand here and lie

when the cup's overflowing and the cold winds are blowing
do you look to the stars up above
when the candle's burnt out and there's no understanding
of a tangible concept of love

i've been beaten black and blue
i've been known to fall
in love with those who run from me
who let me waste it all

but i'm not going to stand here and lie
no i'm not going to stand here and lie

when the cup's overflowing and the cold winds are blowing
do you look to the stars up above
when the candle's burnt out and there's no understanding
of a tangible concept of love

guess i never thought you'd deceive me
how i liked it when you teased me
you played with my head as i laid in bed
searching for light in the dark

when the cup's overflowing and the cold winds are blowing
do you look to the stars up above
when the candle's burnt out and there's no understanding
of a tangible concept of love

when the cup's overflowing and the cold winds are blowing
do you look to the stars up above
when the candle's burnt out and there's no understanding
of a tangible concept of love

when the cup's overflowing and the cold winds are blowing
do you look to the stars up above
when the candle's burnt out and there's no understanding
of a tangible concept of love
