Lord you know I've cried a thousand tears tonight,
But nothing seems to quench the thirst you keep on craving,
But now I need an answer to my prayers and you're not there,
So why I think you listen, listen.

Has no one told you, your cries are all in vain,
And everyone keeps trying to take that all away,
Has no one told you, your cries are all in vain,
Your cries.

Lord I can't disguise the look inside my eyes,
The more I try to look away the more I'm staring,
But now I need an answer to my prayers and your not there,
So why I think you listen, listen.

Has no one told you, your cries are all in vain,
And everyone keeps trying to take that all away,
Has no one told you, your cries are all in vain,
Your cries.

Your cries in vain
Your cries in vain
Your cries in vain
Your cries in vain
I look away

Has no one told you, your cries are all in vain,
And everyone keeps trying to take that all away,
Has no one told you, your cries are all in vain,
Your cries.

Has nobody told you when you look away,
The stories they told you still run through your veins
Has nobody told you when you look away,
The stories they told you still run through your (run through your) veins

    sndrobd not that he doesn't answer just doesn't give us everything we wanted. It would be kool if we did though. Not preaching just saying
