I’m collecting teardrops for tonight
Collecting proof so you won’t walk out
Proof so you’ll treat me right
Why do you doubt what it’s about?

Teardrops are my only friend
Teardrops, come see me again
You only know my deepest fear
That he’ll be gone, he’ll be out of here

I’m collecting prayers for tonight
Collecting words so I know you know
Not knowing isn’t right
What can I do so you won’t go?


Tears are falling down again
My ocean of tears didn’t affect him
I wasted years and tears on a guy
That didn’t even notice me cry
So that’s why I cry…
I’ve cried so much tonight, goodbye
