JR Richards – Come To Tears

“Come To Tears” was inspired by and dedicated to my son Dom. My heart and prayers go out to all children, teenagers, young adults and their families that are affected by childhood onset illnesses. We know first hand how brutal, difficult and lonely the path is. My wife, Min, and I feel very strongly that we want to end the stigma attached to mental illness. We feel together we can make a huge difference. It’s time to talk about it. Share it. Empathize with people struggling. Understand. Love and give.
Come To Tears is about the terrifying psychosis that my son has and does experience. We are forever hopeful for a bright future and the tremendous advances being made in research and the development of therapies.
Together we are one.

By JR Richards

and I surrender
to the loneliness the rain
all the voices
are coming back again
and I’m forever lost in-between

I’ll surrender
to the dark inside of me
I have my reasons
I’m the monster in this dream
so forever from me I will run

“I see you”
the devils sing to terrify
so all my angels run
to the dark side soon now all the LOVE is gone
can I carry on?
or shall I run and hide away?
run away tonight

I’ll surrender
to the shadows on the wall
it seems to reason
that so many tears must fall
I am unwell and afraid..

“I see you”
The voices sing to terrify
as my angels run
in a mad place far away the LOVE is gone
and now everyone
has run away from me
run away tonight

uh-oh my world is gone
and I can not be seen
uh oh its COME TO TEARS
and now I’m in-between
uh oh who I am is gone
when will I be free?
uh-oh uh-oh
will I ever be LOVED?
when will I be free?
when will I be LOVED?

I’ve lost myself
