Norah Jones - How I Weep

How I, how I
Weep for the loss
And it creeps down my chin
For the heart and the hair
And the skin and the air
That swirls itself around the bare

How I weep
How I weep
How I weep and I sleep
And I march and I dance
And I sing and I laugh
And I laugh and I laugh

But inside
But inside
Inside I weep
Inside I weep
And I weep for a loss that's so deep
That it hardens and turns into stone

There it stays
And rolls through bones
'Til they crumble
And the earth doesn't spin
It's got no way to win
And the stars stare down with sad clown faces
And they taunt me
They taunt me
So I run and I run, and I run and I run
But I've nowhere to go except into the sun
And I weep for the loss and the loss weeps for me
The loss weeps for me

Then it whacks me straight into my stomach at night
It's a hard blow to take with all of its might
And it tries to be sorry, it tries to be sweet
Then it runs out the door as if on two feet

And I stand there and wonder, when will I be free?
Then I realized I held it, it never held me
It had to hurt me to finally be gone
'Cause I made the mistake of dragging it on

And I wonder, what kind of person am I
Who weeps for a loss but can't tell it goodbye?

How I
How I weep
How I weep
How I weep
How I
How I weep
How I weep
How I weep
