One Last Tear

One Last Glass by Phil Burns

One Last Glass by Phil Burns

The most difficult thing is to start each day
Knowing that you are no longer here
Facing up to the fact there is no one who cares
So each morning I cry one last tear

I believed that you’d stay forever with me
You’d always be here to hug and to hold me
Was I foolish to believe an impossible dream
To believe all the lies that you told me

When we were together I was quite relaxed
I was seldom upset or distressed
Now I view the same world in a whole different light
Deep cynicism and a sense of distrust

I have never understood why you had to go
Was the price of my love way too dear
Were the shattered remains that you left behind
As unimportant as that one last tear

So one last smile is all I ask for
One last kiss before you finally go
One last touch demonstrating a flake of affection
The last sign of love that I’ll ever know

Then I’ll face up to the fact there is no one who cares
And one last time I’ll cry one last tear
