Tears for souvenirs
Tears for shields and spears

When it's such an unstable world
And I'm looking for the real McCoy
Picture: Girl meets boy
Picture in a magazine
Yes you've shown your feelings
Said things worth believing

I don't love you anymore
You surmise you can't win

Should I lie
Excuses had their uses

Yes you've shown you're tough
Tears are not enough
Tears for souvenirs
Tears for shields and spears
