TEARDROPS ©2004


He calls her on the phone, says he won't be home tonight
Till very late, got a business date
But the kind of date he's got
He's got no business taking out at all
She's no office call
Why did he have to go and fall in love again
With the perfect woman waiting home just for him
She puts the kids to bed, when they're asleep she cries
'Cause she can see right through his lies
Yeah on the other side of town
Sits a girl with teardrops in her eyes

She grabs him by the hand, takes the wedding band and hides
It in her purse, right there next to hers
Such an empty-handed act
It doesn't hide the fact that two souls cry at home…
Slowly die alone
She told her husband she was going out tonight
With the girls to catch a show, then maybe grab a bite
But he knows better, her expressions made him wise
'Cause she was never good at lies
Yeah on the other side of town
Sits a man with teardrops in his eyes

He kisses her good-bye, promises to try another
Rendezvous in a day or two
Then they slowly drive away
Each planning what to say to try and make it right
Staying out all night
How can we justify the situation of
Much too many people falling in and out of love
If we don't stoke the fire, the flame it slowly dies
Then it comes as no surprise
That on the other side of town
Sits a pair with teardrops in their eyes

You see it everywhere around
People down with teardrops in their eyes
