All of the seasons and all of the days
All of the reasons why I've felt this way
So long...
So long

Then lost in that feeling I looked in your eyes
I noticed emotion and that you had cried
For me
I can see

What would touch me deeper...
Tears that fall from eyes that only cry?
Would it touch you deeper
Than tears that fall from eyes that know why?

A lifetime of questions, tears on your cheek
I tasted the answers and my body was weak
For you
The truth

What would touch me deeper...
Tears that fall from eyes that only cry?
Would it touch you deeper
Than tears that fall from eyes that know why?

    Beautiful song, in a way it is kind of a love song. Essentially he is wondering whether, after all he has experienced in "all of the seasons", if this other person really feels the same way about life and the questions that surround their existence. Perhaps the character is saddened though because after "tasting [your] answers]", he finds his body is weak for the person and for the truth (unable to attach back into reality because he finds it too painful). In conclusion, the song is saying he is not the one for them because he is simply too emotional because he has seen the truth (or has read too far into their relationship - "eyes that know why?"). Rush put a lot of context into their lyrics, I don't know what anyone else thinks; I just know I like the song. Peace.
