Teardrops Will Fall Lyrics

by John Mellencamp

I read your letter, darlin'
Tears filled my eyes
All of the promises you made were nothing but lies
So I turned your photograph over face to the wall
And when I dim the lights in my room tonight
Teardrops will fall

Teardrops will fall tonight
Tears I can't hide
Tears that I'd rather keep
Deep down inside
Tears from a love that's gone beyond these walls
And when I dim the lights in my room tonight
Teardrops will fall

I'm gonna pray tonight, baby
Hopin' you will hear
And maybe you'll write all those wrongs
And dry each tear
I sit alone tonight
Hopin' you will call
And when I dim the lights in my room tonight
Teardrops will fall

Teardrops will fall tonight
Tears I can't hide
Tears that I'd rather keep
Deep down inside
Tears from a love that's gone beyond these walls
And when I dim the lights in my room tonight
Teardrops will fall

Teardrops will fall tonight
Tears I can't hide
Tears that I'd rather keep
Deep down inside
Tears from a love that's gone beyond these walls
And when I dim the lights in my room tonight
When I dim the lights in my room tonight
Teardrops will fall
