CRY FROM THE HEART (Robert J. Purvis)

Haven't seen you in years

Now you're back in my life

Such a long time ago even out in the rain

Come inside where it's dry


You've been losing the game

You've been feeling the pain

Having more than your share of sadness to spare

And it shows in your eyes


With a cry from the heart

You call out my name

Never felt so much love, emotional pain

But I won't let you down

I can't see you fall

I'll be here, when you need me, just call


Seems a lifetime away

All those innocent years

Just a couple of kids with no hang-ups or cares

Finding out about love


But you can't hold back time

It will change everyday

It's all different somehow

Though I still love you now

Sad in the same way


With a cry from the heart

A voice in the night

Never felt so much love

Never been held so tight

Though I can't give it all

I'll put on a show

I'm holding back, but you'll never know


[guitar solo]


With a cry from the heart

You call out my name

Never felt so much love, emotional pain

But I can't let you down

I won't see you fall

I'll be here, when you need me, just call


With a cry from the heart

A voice in the night

Never felt so much love

Never been held so tight

Though I can't give it all

I'll put on a show

I'm holding back, but you'll never know


[repeat verse 1].
