Big Tears Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Everyone is busy with the regular routine, the sniper just takes his aim
Everyone is window shopping, no one is amazed
Even if he hit you, you'd still think it's just a graze
You go to a movie, you go to a show
You think that you're living, you don't really know

Big tears mean nothing, you can count them as they fall
Big tears mean nothing when you're lying in your coffin
Tell me who's been taken in

Oh, you talk about the new boss automatic clause
But of course they make it all up for you
Always fascinated by the weird edge of town
Come home disappointed every time they put you down
Laughing with the old boys, saying that it's all noise

I suppose big tears mean nothing, you can count them as they fall
Big tears mean nothing when you're lying in your coffin
Tell me who's been taken in

All the buttons of my overcoat, they have fallen off one by one
You wouldn't even like me if you'd never had a drink
You wouldn't even like me if you never stopped to think
Standing in the shadow, turning wives to widows

Don't you know big tears mean nothing, you can count them as they fall
Big tears mean nothing when you're lying in your coffin
Tell me who's been taken in, tell me
Me or you's been taken in, tell me, tell me, tell me
