When She Cries - Restless Heart
The road I have travelled on
Is paved with good intentions
It's littered with broken dreams
That never quite came true
When all of my hopes were dying
Her love kept me trying
She does her best to hide
The pain that she's been through

When she cries at night
And she doesn't think that I can hear her
She tries to hide all the fears she feels inside
So I pray this time
I can be the man that she deserves
'Cause I die a little each time
When she cries

She's always been there for me
Whenever I've fallen
When nobody else believes
She'll be there by my side
I don't know how she takes it
Just once I like to make it
Then there'll be tears of joy
That fill her loving eyes

(Repeat chorus)

So I pray this time
I can be the man that she deserves
'Cause I die a little each time
When she cries

    Its a touching song, were in a man who don't give a damn with his gf, who plays a lot yet his gf still stand by him and continue loving him despite everything he did.

    The woman takes care of everything in the relationship. She helps him no matter what it is and he can tell that its starting to get to her. He can see that she is doing way too much and he wants to help and hopes at least one time it can be him doing the things she has done.

    A song for the woman behind a man who is struggling in the world. The woman is surporting the man who is fighting on the road. When the man falls, the woman would cry and the man feels sorry for her.

    I think the woman loves the guy but the guy doesn't have any romantic feelings for her. So the guy is hoping that he can return the woman's love for him.
