Tears Run Rings Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

On heavenly rain
You fell into my life
Unforgettable smile
Unforgettable lies

In the name of the cross
Or a banner of love
With the hand of a friend
Or under a blanket of trust

The angels sighed
A little girl cried
The tears run rings
Around my eyes

We're going to set fire
To the house in my heart
We're going to set fire
To the whole damn world

I don't understand
The wicked things we do
In the name of the good
In the name of the few

The angels sighed
The little girl cried
The tears run rings
Around my eyes

The angels sighed
The little girl cried
The tears run rings
Around my eyes

Don't look at me
With your innocent smile
When the bed is burning
Around my head

When a war breaks out
It'll be no surprise
Your unforgettable smile
Your unforgettable lies

And I've got to stop running
To make my start
We've got to get together
Before we fall apart

They're pulling down the old slums
To build the new
They're bringing back the old rules
To please the few

In the name of the cross
Or a banner of love
With the hand of a friend
Or under a blanket of trust

The angels sighed
A little girl cried
The tears run rings
Around my eyes

The angels sighed
A little girl cried
The tears run rings
Around my eyes

The angels sighed
A little girl cried
The tears run rings
Around my eyes

The angels sighed
A little girl cried
The tears run rings
Around my eyes

Pull down the old slums
To build the new
Pull down the love
I built with you

Promise of tomorrow
You never kept
And you try to burn the house down
When I slept

The nation's in disorder
There's chaos in my heart
We've got to get together
Before we fall apart

Before we fall apart
Before we fall apart
Before we fall apart
Before we fall apart
