Desiree - If Tears Could Build A Stairway
Desiree - If Tears Could Build A Stairway

Feeling the emotional loss of losing someone close and realizing that very person is the one who was always there for us, to help us get through times like this... Knowing that if Tears Could Build A Stairway... they would be here for us once again.

The song was inspired by an obituary I came upon by accident about an 8 year old boy. Part of the Eulogy was about building a stairway with tears. The song came to me that evening.

Lyrics

If Tears Could Build A Stairway

You would tell me, There's a bigger picture
Someone had a plan
You would make some sense of this, where as no one else can
You would tell me, I should be strong
It'll all be OK
And you'd be right here with me
If Tears Could Build A Stairway

You always were the one, who helped me face my fears
Losing you was my biggest one, and now you're not here
But the strength that you've given me, gets me through each day
I know you'd be right here with me
If Tears Could Build A Stairway

If Tears Could Build A Stairway
You'd be holding me right now
Helping me get through this somehow
You always knew just what to say
And you'd be with me right now
If Tears Could Build A Stairway

I'll forever be a part of you
I'll try to make you proud with everything I do
Up until that day I see you again

If Tears Could Build A Stairway
You'd be holding me right now
Helping me get through this somehow
You always knew just what to say
And you'd be with me right now
If Tears Could Build A Stairway

You would tell me, There's a bigger picture
Someone had a plan
You would make some sense of this where as no one else can
