Tears From Above - Poem by Francis Utada

Tears fall down on me
I look around and see nothing but shadows
I hear a voice of crying along the way
I listen carefully but I can’t figure where it came

Running fast not looking behind
Sometimes we must follow where the wind blows
While sun is shining darkness I see
Still the tears kept falling down on me

Nowhere to run, road is block
Must escape the tears that’s following me
Guilt and fear I’m into right now
Who are you? show me your face?

I thought you’re far away
I thought I’ve lost you when I ran away
But you kept holding on up high above
Watching my step as I run

Where am I to go, where should I run
Must go now before I see the pain again

I looked at you to see
You waived your hand goodbye while the last tear fell
As you turn around you whispered I love you, then run away

I’ve been running away from you for all of my life
How fool am I not to face your tears
When all you’re trying to say is how much you love me.
