  1. I See The Reflection In Your Tears.

    I see the reflection in your tears of your broken heart
    and how you think we are gone
    forever and will always be apart
    Time will heal your heartache and your tears will fade away
    You will again feel my touch when you come my way
    You’ll touch my wings and your heart will heal
    It will be happiness that you feel
    I will again see your smile reflected in your tears
    We will be together again never wondering about the years.
