You shed some tears

The empty nest – was your emptiness,
your parents died – children left home,
no prospects, no hope, – a heart like a stone,
no reason to live, – there was no happiness

from time to time, you shed some tears,
you can't believe it – after many years,
was it right – or was it wrong,
there are still feelings, nobody knows how strong.
from time to time, from time to time,
from time to time, you shed some tears.

You had your reasons didn't want to expound
sometimes you felt – so sad alone and blue
you made the decision on what to do
and to get your feet back on the ground

from time to time, you shed some tears,
you can't believe it – after many years,
was it right – or was it wrong,
there are still feelings, nobody knows how strong.
from time to time, from time to time,
from time to time, you shed some tears.

for a second chance – you knew you had to act
you started to find out – what else is out there
but sometimes when you staring at the empty chair,
this proper, though and wise decision has a deep impact
from time to time, you shed some tears,

you can't believe it – after many years,
was it right or was it wrong,
there are still feelings, nobody knows how strong.
from time to time, from time to time,
from time to time, you shed some tears.
