Feel just like a weight has lifted it
How can I repay you help me understand
Currency a fistful of tears I can afford
Fight of your life is not the cost
Time will reveal
All along you’re the one who’s losing

Cause I go insane
Crazy sometimes
Tryin you to keep you from losing your mind
Open your eyes
See what’s in front of your face
Save me my fistful of tears

You can make it disappear girl
All you got to do is just raise up, face up, stay up
All things will heal we’ll feel it with a kiss from the skies
Don’t’ you let it go
Don’t’ you let it go

Cause I go insane
Crazy sometimes
Tryin you to keep you from losing your mind
Open your eyes
See what’s in front of your face
And save me my fistful of tears

We gon fight the war
We gon fight our fears
The only thing I wanna throw is a fistful of tears
We gon fight the war
We gon fight our fears
The only thing I gotta throw is a fistful of tears
We gon fight the war
We gon fight our fears
The only thing I wanna throw is a fistful of tears

Cause I go insane
Crazy sometimes
Tryin you to keep you from losing your mind
Open your eyes
See what’s in front of your face
And save me my fistful of tears

Cause I go insane
Crazy sometimes
Tryin you to keep you from losing your mind
Open your eyes
See what’s in front of your face
And save me my fistful of tears

    I think it's spiritual. The weight has lifted because he understands that in the end g-d will wipe away all of our tears. We don't have to lose our minds in this crazy world. We can make the evil go away by rising up, facing up, and staying up. We'll see the curse lift when the clouds part. Don't let go of reality. In the end, g-d wins. Save g-d his fistful of tears.

    It's a relationship. Working thru the ups and downs and being able to see and appreciate what you have in front of your face.

    She saved him from lonliness but now she's trippin' (maybe thinking he's cheating) but he don't want her to feel like that so they have to fight it (her feelings) together.
