A woman on the train was crying today
Fallen tears and loud hiccups were echoing around
Can’t hide what can’t be hidden
The day has been so long
It seems to have no end
Is there going to be a tomorrow
Will there be a reason to get up
Suit on, high hills on, straight up shoulders
Everything is a sign of a strong woman
But head’s down and eyes swollen from the unstoppable pain that falls from those eyes
She gets up with a body of a queen and a soul of a child
Looked at me and now I know there will be no tomorrow.
Her pain is deep in my stomach and suddenly my shoulders are so tired
All the worry wasn’t her problem anymore but mine.
