Inishmore – I Can't Cry lyrics

Emptiness and blackness are filling my head,
Why should I live? I would rather be dead!
The heavens are raining down on me,
Black forever is all I want to be.
Somewhere my mind got lost,
Now I pay the cost.
My mind lies smashed and in agony,
All I want is my soul in ebony.
I don't need hope, I don't need recreation!
For I opened my heart and to my consternation,
It was small empty and dark
No light and no spark

And I can't even cry,
Though the tears are in my eyes.
And I can't even feel,
For my wounds will never heal.
I lay awake at night,
Torn to pieces from my fight,
My inner rage that won't let go.

No colours fill my life,
No light can cut me like a knife,
For black's the only colour I would paint my soul!
And I can't even cry,
Though the tears are in my eyes.
And I can't even feel,
For my wound will never heal.
And I can't even trust,
For my hopes crumbled to dust.
And I will never Love again,
All I want and need is pain!
