Tears, Tears, Tears
by Ben E. King



Just before the sun is ready to say goodnight
And the moon comes out of hiding to share its light
I think about the things we used to do
The way you held me when our love was new
But it's no use in going back through the years
There's nothing left for me but tears, tears, tears, tears

Everywhere I go it seems I see your smiling face (smiling face)
But when I get home there's nothing but empty space
That single cigarette we used to share
The time we wasted when I thought you cared
How can I face this life without you near
A life that only holds tears, tears, tears, tears

Who'd ever thought we would be going, going our separate ways
We promised love forever but where, oh, where is love today (love today)

Do, do, do, do

Darling if you'd ever change your mind
Come back and we will leave the past behind
I'll wipe away your doubt, dispel all your fears
But please don't leave me here with tears, tears, tears, tears

But even though my heart is breaking I wish you love
May you find the happiness that we both dreamed of

Do, do, do, do
