Brush Away Your Tears

by: Michael Skinner

Brush away the tears from your eyes my child
The world don’t want to see you cry – CHORUS -
Brush away the tears from your eyes my child
The world don’t want to hear you cry

And though it’s not right you’ve got to carry on with your life – please try
The world don’t understand, sticks it’s head in the sand – and hides – VERSE -
I wish I could take your hand, try to help you understand my child
You’ve got to carry on, your story must be told – sometime

Brush away the tears from your eyes my child
The world don’t want to see you cry – CHORUS -
Brush away the tears from your eyes my child
The world don’t want to hear you cry

When you’re standing all alone, reach inside to carry on – dear child
Find the ways to be strong, though they may break you down inside
Your spirit is still alive so look around and you’ll find – VERSE -
A friend who’ll hold your hand, will try their best to understand your life
So till then please carry on, find the ways to be strong my child

Brush away the tears from your eyes my child
The world don’t want to see you cry – CHORUS -
Brush away the tears from your eyes my child
The world don’t want to hear you cry

Brush away your tears
Hide all of your fears – CHORUS REFRAIN -
Hide all of your pain
Hide all of your shame
The world don’t want to know
The world don’t want to know

Someday the world will understand
And then they’ll hold out their hand
Till then you must be strong
And find the way to carry on
Brush away your tears
Brush away your tears
