When the baby cries
And I defy the fear
Every time the crow must fly away
To leave me here
And your heart must beat it's tireless heat
In burning sway
Reunion spent, but wordless sent away

When the baby cries
And I deny the pain
I have to close my eyes
I know that things will never be the same
And the time it takes for a heart to break
It's all the same to me
All I ever wanted to be

When the baby cries
I've nothing but a shadow
Each step I take
I force myself to let it go
And the strain of pride, I can't decide
To make it on my own
But no-one ever really wants to know
Which way to go

When the baby cries
I'm searching for a face
Arms held out in solitude
But I can't find the place
And the blanket of a memory
Imagined love was blind
Forcing for a smile just one more time

When the baby cries
And I am left alone
And the feeling, all-concealing
Means this heart is not a home
And the ache inside me breaks inside me
Breaks you too, I know
Now I am lost with nowhere else to go
Which way to go
You'll never know, you'll never know
