I'd never known her to cry
But this time is different for sure
She's shaking with tears in her eyes
As she picks up what's left of the night

The hope for a reason seemed pure
As we leave what's left on the wall

But oh, how it's taken its toll
Oh, how it's taken its toll
Everything's taken its toll
Everything's taken its toll

There was more than a break in the smiles
They rose and slowly they tired
As she turned and the moments were made
There were none that could prove where she lay

There's a calm in the stories now told
And the distance will always be home

And oh, how it's taken its toll
Oh, how it's taken its toll
Everything's taken its toll
Everything's taken its toll

Everything's taken its toll
It's a moment we carry alone
With a cause there's a cure for the soul
But oh, how it's taken its toll
Oh, how it's taken its toll
