CHEERS TO TEARS 



100 questions come to my mind 
Why do things have to change when they were perfect from the start?
Why do we have to lose everything that we have always been holding onto?
Where can I get all the facts?
I am afraid I will never have a clear answer 

Once, long ago 
It started with ‘Love and dreams’ 
The road blocked ahead of us 
Keeping us from getting where we wanted to go 
No beginning, no end 
No hopes, no causes 
Ended with ‘pain and disappointment’ 
It was not supposed to happen 
But it did 
Cheers to tears 

I really felt that moment 
The smile on my face wouldn’t go 
I had you, all you, now I have myself 
Forever actually don’t last 
We walked this path for far too long 
That was too long to wait 

Bringing it all back 
I had forgotten how harsh it was 
I never wanted to give up the hope 
Could we have made it alive?
There was nothing great about keeping it alive 
Life was the same everyday 
We would never get out alive 

The trauma surrounding this problem 
There were lots of warning signs before this moment 
I didn’t even have the time to consider that 
When we are in love sometimes we forgive too much 
The world was convulsed by anguish 
I was inside someone who hates me 
There is no pain as great as being in an abusive relationship 
I could barely hold it in 
Cheers to tears 
I have found a perfect end 
I can’t believe it’s come to this 

Through the sad tears I cried this past time 
The one thing I get from all this 
There is absolutely nothing that can be taken for granted in this world 
The universe is more than a million trillion times larger than what we see 
Didn't want a part of it 
I let you walk away 
Now you feel so broken 
The heart terribly in pieces 
The lungs aching badly 
The bones are falling 
This is harder than you thought 
The world seems so small 
Nowhere to get out always in pain 
The absence is more noticeable 
You want to feel happiness so bad 
Nothing seems to be working 
I'll tell you what you need to hear 
Don’t make that mistake again 
Girls are like money 
If you drop money in the toilet 
You will fish it out 
Faster than it dropped in 
What is worth immersing your hand in the toilet bowl for?
We too good to ignore
