Reaching for the moon


Reaching for the moon,
But just falling short
Impossible to explain,
How it breaks your heart
So near, yet so far,
All the efforts falling apart

Yes, I’ll own it,
I’ll answer every why
I’m not giving up,
I’ll give it another try
But this pain is real,
My tears won’t lie

Dear, sometimes when they’re hurt,
Men also cry.
