Back to Tears lyrics

Tears

No
Well, well, well, well
Ooh yeah
Oh yeah

Thank you, baby
For the years you've given me
For each beat of my heart
For every breath I breathe

Thank you, sweetie
For the best times of my life
Through the good, through the bad
You were always by my side

I never thought I'd meet someone
Who loves unselfishly
And I appreciate the way you loved
And sacrificed for me

I can't hold back these tears, let me cry
Let me cry, although a man's not suppose to cry
If I hold back my tears, I'll just die
You've given so much to my life

Thank you, lady
For the joy you bring to life
When all was lost and gone
You brought hope back in sight

Thank you, honey
For being my best friend
When I thought no one understood
You would always understand

I used to think that I knew love
And what true love would mean
Now I know that I did not know much
'Cause you taught me everything

I can't hold back these tears, let me cry
Let me cry, although a man's not suppose to cry
If I hold back my tears, I'll just die
You've given so much to my life

Oh, God so loved the world
That He blessed us all with you
Then He gave me a heart
And now I'm giving it to you, baby

And these tears I cry are tears of joy
My happiness, I do rejoice
In the love you give unselfishly
Your constant sacrifice for me

I can't hold back these tears, let me cry
Although a man's not suppose to cry
If I hold back my tears, I'll just die
You, you, you given so much to my life

I can't hold back these tears, let me cry
Although a man's not suppose to cry
If I hold back my tears, I'll just die
You've given so much, so much to my life

I can't hold back these tears, let me cry
If I hold back my tears, I'll just die
I can't hold back these tears
Yeah, I'll just die, ooh
