Lyrics

When The Tears Finally Come

Written By: Lyrics: Katherine Perez

When The Tears Finally Come

Well it must be wearin' thin
Always gettin' your own way
When the shadows overtake the light
At the end of the day

No one can ever touch you
But tell me, tell me what you've won
You'll be standin' all alone
When the tears finally come

I never tried to change you
Never tried to rein you in
But you picked me up, and put me down, and picked me up again

Go on, take another lover
Wonder why you feel so numb
That river's gonna overflow
When the tears finally come

chorus:
Baby when your darkest hour
Comes right before the dawn
That hour's gonna feel like years
When the tears finally come

I know you always do the leavin'
Well baby, not this time
My only hope of findin' love
Is to move on down the line

I might have been your fool
After all is said and done
But I know I won't be cryin'
When the tears finally come

chorus:
Baby when your darkest hour
Comes right before the dawn
That hour's gonna feel like years
When the tears finally come
Oh Baby,
When the tears finally come
I won't be there to hold you baby
When the tears finally come

Liberty City

Written By: music: Joseph Lavallee; lyrics: Katherine Perez

LIBERTY CITY

MY PAST IS LIKE A SHADOW/ NEVER FAR ENOUGH BEHIND/
DRIVIN’ THROUGH THIS PART OF TOWN/SENDS SHIVERS DOWN MY SPINE/STARIN’ AT THE SHABBY STREETS/ WHERE I USED TO COME TO SCORE/‘TIL THE DAY I WOKE UP KNOWIN’/ I WON’T DO THAT ANYMORE

THERE’S A YOUNG MAN ON A CORNER/ WITH HOLLOWED CHEEKS
AND BLACKENED EYES/ HIS DESPERATION RISIN’/ AS CARS GO PASSING BY/IN A HOT AND STICKY BACKSEAT/ THERE’S A YOUNG GIRL ON HER KNEES/WORKIN’ HARD TO FEED HER HABIT/ AND DYIN’ BY DEGREES

Chorus: LOST SOULS AND THOSE YOU WON’T EXPECT
SECRETS HELD IN VAIN
PLEASURE AND POISON
BUZZ IN THEIR BRAINS
AND THE STREET’S NO CLEANER
AFTER THE RAIN
IN LIBERTY CITY
NOBODY WANTS TO KNOW YOUR NAME

THERE ARE BARS ON A DIRTY WINDOW/ WHERE I PAWNED MY LAST GUITARS/FOR BUSTED VEINS, BROKEN DREAMS/ AND MEMORIES LIKE SCARS/THE SEDUCTION OF THIS TOWN/ IS IN HER HOPEFUL NAME/JUST ONE MORE FIX WILL SET YOU FREE/ TO RISE ABOVE THE PAIN

(Repeat Chorus)
LOST SOULS AND THOSE
YOU WON'T EXPECT
SECRETS HELD IN VAIN
PLEASURE AND POISON
BUZZ IN THEIR BRAINS
AND THE STREET'S NO CLEANER
AFTER THE RAIN
IN LIBERTY CITY
NOBODY WANTS TO KNOW
YOUR NAME

(bridge)
I GUESS SOMEONE’S PRAYER FINALLY REACHED ME
FLEW IN ON TATTERED WINGS
BRUSHED MY CHEEK IN A RESTLESS SLEEP
NOW I DON’T NEED THOSE THINGS
NOW I DON’T NEED THOSE THINGS

(Repeat chorus)
LOST SOULS AND THOSE
YOU WON'T EXPECT
SECRETS HELD IN VAIN
PLEASURE AND POISON
BUZZ IN THEIR BRAINS
AND THE STREET'S NO CLEANER
AFTER THE RAIN
IN LIBERTY CITY
NOBODY WANTS TO KNOW YOUR NAME
