Testo della canzone Read 'em And Weep (Barry Manilow), tratta dall'album Greatest Hits Vol. 3

Read 'em And Weep - Barry Manilow

I've been trying for hours just to think of what exactly to say
I thought I'd leave you with a letter or a fiery speech
Like when an actor makes an exit at the end of a play
And I've been dying for hours
Trying to fill up all the holes with some sense
I'd like to know why you gave up and you threw it away
I'd like to give you all the reasons and what everything meant

Well I could tell you goodbye or maybe see you around
With just the touch of a sarcastic thanks
We started out with a bang and at the top of the world
Now the guns are exhausted and the bullets are blanks
And everything's blank

If I could only find the words then I would write it all down
If I could only find a voice I would speak
Oh, it's there in my eyes, oh, can't you see me tonight?
C'mon and look at me and read 'em and weep
If I could only find the words then I would write it all down
If I could only find a voice I would speak
Oh, it's there in my eyes, oh, can't you see me tonight?
Come on and look at me and read 'em and weep

I've been whispering softly, trying to build a cry up into a scream
We let the past slip away and put the future on hold
Now the present is nothing but a hollowed out dream
And I've been dreaming forever
Hoping something would eventually come
I saw your eyes in the dark I thought you'd kiss on my lips
Had to raise your body in the air until the bodies were numb

Well I could tell you, "Goodbye" or maybe, "See you around"
With just a touch of a sarcastic, "Thanks"
But now the rooms are all empty, the candles are dark
The guns are exhausted and the bullets are blanks
And everything's blank

If I could only find the words then I would write it all down
If I could only find a voice I would speak
Oh, it's there in my eyes, oh, can't you see me tonight?
Come on and look at me and read 'em and weep

Oh, it's there in my eyes and coming straight from my heart
It's running silent and angry and deep
Oh, it's there in my eyes and it's all I can say
Come on and look at me and read 'em and weep

(Read 'em and weep)
For all the hours we'll be spending alone
(Read 'em and weep)
For the dreams we'll ignore
(Running silent and deep)
And all the promises we promised to keep
They won't be kept anymore
(Read 'em and weep)
For the magic that our bodies had made
(Read 'em and weep)
For the blood that we'd lost
(Running silent and deep)
And all those secrets that we somehow betrayed
For whatever the cost
(Read 'em and weep)
For the memories still alive in the bed
(Read 'em and weep)
For the lies we believed
(Running silent and deep)
And all the things that will had never been said
Why don't you look at me and read 'em and weep?
Come on and look at me and read 'em and weep

It's there in my eyes and coming straight from my heart
It's running silent and angry and deep
It's there in my eyes, it's all I can say
Come on and look at me and read 'em and weep
