Nothing Left but Tears

I must be made of water. 
I have nothing left but tears. 

 

Daughters. Mothers. 
My spirit aching. 
Sisters. Brothers. 
A heart that’s breaking. 
I must be made of water. 
I have nothing left but tears. 

 

Blood and terror. 
Children dying. 
Fear and anger. 
So much crying. 
I must be made of water. 
I have nothing left but tears. 

 

Oh this heartbreak, 
Silence howling. 
Oh this heart ache, 
Terror prowling. 
I must be made of water. 
I have nothing left but tears. 

 

Not just water. 
These tears, they feed me. 
My bones are iron. 
My people need me.
