Vale of Tears
--F. Tackett, S. Murphy, and B. Payne

the TV cold fire burning
been up all night
and the light has left your eyes
I was always runnin' to you
not fast enough
my little boy blue
ever get where you wanted to go?
you knew the way

the times, the good and the bad
was all that we had
in the end it let us down
I'm tired and I feel the blame
all my prayers sound the same
stranded here with no relief
abandoned here beyond belief

vale of tears
empty room
once was filled
cold and still
this ragged town so desperate in the rain
has no mercy, no shelter from the pain
never mind the promised tomorrow
given for a heartfelt sorrow
always tomorrow the promise
in a vale of tears

the raucous sounds and shining lights
weave their tales into the night
and the knowing lingers bright
all the love my sweet tender friend
it's still around, it never ends
the past is just an alibi
it's all the same

the weather's turning warmer every day
and I think the rains are done
at least that's what they say
thought I saw you just the other night
I knew my eyes weren't seeing right
then again I see you all the time
everywhere

vale of tears
empty room
once was filled
cold and still
this ragged town so desperate in the rain
has no mercy, no shelter from the pain
never mind the promised tomorrow
given for a heartfelt sorrow
always tomorrow the promise
in a vale of tears

even now this anger's replacin' faith
I somehow
the heart remembers you

never mind the promised tomorrow
given for a heartful of sorrow
always tomorrow the promise
in a vale of tears
tell me 'bout the promise tomorrow
given for a heartful of sorrow
always remember the promise
in a vale of tears
