"With ‘Tears,’ I set out to capture the essence of both the beauty and rawness of our shared human experience, in joy and in pain. My hope is that this song carries a sort of simple permission for us to feel, process, and embrace the healing that comes through the God-given gift of tears." -Matt Hammitt

Song Lyrics:

You’ve been waiting a long time
To let this out into the daylight
You’re not alone, we all have days
When the well inside needs to break

Just let ‘em fall like healing rain
Watch the walls start crumbling
Let your heart beat and feel the weight
You’ve carried disappear
Just let ‘em fall right down your face
Hit the ground in a pool of grace
And feel the things you haven’t felt for years
Then you’ll know why God made tears

The waves crash hard into the harbor
But you don’t have to hold them back any longer
There’s a freedom found when you’re unafraid
To let the water wash it all away

Just let ‘em fall like healing rain
Watch the walls start crumbling
Let your heart beat and feel the weight
You’ve carried disappear
Just let ‘em fall right down your face
Hit the ground in a pool of grace
And feel the things you haven’t felt for years
Then you’ll know why God made tears

Watch the old become new
Let the fear fade away
Feel his arms around you
It’s ok
