A Pile of Tears

A Pile Of Tears

Music and Lyrics by Peter Link
Title by Jenny Burton

There’s a pile of tears
Sitting on the pillow
Next to where I sleep
A pile of tears

A pile of tears
On cool clean sheets
Who belongs …
I can’t remember
Who belongs …

Were they yours?
Are they mine?
A love, I fear
In sad decline
With nothing left
But a pile of tears

This morning as I lie here waking
Trying to disentangle while my heart is aching
Tryin’ to grasp the fact
That only half the bed needs making

There’s an empty space
There inside the closet
There across the room
An empty space

And an empty place
Inside my life
How do I go on?
I can’t remember
All your things are gone

Not a word
Not a trace
You disappear
But can’t erase
The one thing you left
This pile of tears

This morning as I lie here breaking
Trying to comprehend the turn my life is taking
Tryin’ to grasp the fact
That only half the bed needs making

And tryin’ to make some sense of
This pile of tears
This pile of tears
