Working on the music tonight..will try and sing tomorrow..revised lyrics..thanks glyn



I’ve Been There

It hurts to see my children cry
Knowing there’s nothing I can do
Can’t tell them I know how they feel
That’s not what they need to hear
I can feel their pain is real

I’ve felt the worst pain in this world
Many nights I’d not sleep a wink
I’d hide ..not let them see me cry
So I know the pain ….
BEHIND my childrens eyes



I try to hold them
No matter how old they are
They’re still my babies
Wanna protect them from this world
When they look me in the eye
Ask how can this hurt so bad
Mama Please…take this pain away
I search my soul…………..
Find the right words to say
Inside ..I feel… my heart dying
I see the pain upon their face

All I can say is baby I…..know, I’ve been there



I’ve wondered many times
My world turned upside down
How can this life keep moving on
As I raise the shades , let in the light
When did the night… turn into the dawn


Many times i've found MYSELF
On my knees searching for my pride
Stumble outta bed forced to open up the doors
Can’t count on one hand
How I’ve scraped my heart off this floor

Yeah, I’ve been there



So I try to hold them
No matter how old they are
They’re still my babies
Wanna protect them from this world
When they look me in the eye
Ask how can this hurt so bad
Mama Please…take this pain away
I search my soul
Find the right words to say
Inside …I feel… my heart dying
I see the pain upon their face
All I can say is baby I……know

I’ve been there


In my life people have let me down, hurt my feelings, made me cry,… I’d let it go.. hide my feelings deep inside..but I can't explain how it feels to see my children cry



Yeah, I’ve been there


Baby I’ve been there

Man, I’ve been there

Oh how nice is this,,..How many mothers feel the same way..
They just don't believe that we are vulnerable too and had our ups and downs,,we are mommy tower of strength and we try to convey that in them for their sakes..

Great

H i Glyn,

Hey this one is great. Anyone with children can relate. There's nothing a parent wouldn't do to take away a childs pain. very good write you have here. Is there a link where I could listen to this song? Or is it not that far yet? i would love to hear this one. Take care,
Roger

When life makes my children cry
Knowing there's nothing I can do
Even though I know how they feel
That’s not what they need to hear
The pain on their face is real

When they've given up all hope
Marriage and a broken home
Life's not easy, bumps in the road
Takes a moment to fall in love
A lifetime to forget.. and I know

The Pain Behind My Childrens Eyes


No matter how old they are
They’re still my babies
When they look me in the eyes
Ask how can this hurt so bad
Mama Please…take this pain away
Trying to find
The right words to say....
I know ..

The Pain Behind My Childrens Eyes


Been there myself once or twice
I know what they're going through
Wish I Could take their pain away
As I raise the shades , let in the light
When did the night… turn into day


Muffled cries in the dark
I've paced these floors all night
When my kids hurt I can't ignore
Just like when they were young
Again, I scrap my heart off the floor

Yeah, I know The Pain Behind My Childrens Eyes

No matter how old they are
They’re still my babies
When they look me in the eye
Ask how can this hurt so bad
Mama Please…take this pain away
Trying to find
The right words to say
I know too well...the pain

Behind My Children's Eyes.............................


Five years old or 35, the pain a parent feels can't be explained...while she sleeps...tears of mascara flowing down her cheeks.. I know...the pain.........

Behind My Childrens Eyes.........

Hi Glyn,
Such a deep emotional song. It just says so much about life and feelings of a mom, and I love the music you are working on. It just fits your lyric so well!

I tried to match the lyrics to the song but I believe I got an entirely different song, the one called "The Crying Woman".
Your lyric to the one posted is very powerful and I am sure there are boatloads of these tears being cried down in Florida right now after yet another major school tragedy.
While we're at it, Glyn, is there any follow-up to the interview I did with you some three years or so?

It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

The lyrics are very moving. I like it a lot. Its so true, they never get too old to stop worrying and feeling their pain. Great song.

Am just wondering if this lyric has been set to music yet. When you wrote it you no doubt were feeling the urge to express yourself and your values passionately, intensely and possibly obsessively. Very often your own pain becomes magnified when one's children are feeling the same things you may have also felt yourself. Curious as to whether this is a true story, maybe yours or perhaps someone else close to you.
