TWO TEARDROPS
(Bill Anderson - Steve Wariner)
'99 Sony/ATV Songs
RECORDED BY STEVE WARINER

Two teardrops were floatin' down the river
One teardrop said to the other
I'm from the soft blue eyes of a woman in love
I'm a tear of joy she couldn't carry
She was so happy she'd just gotten married
I was on her cheek when she wiped me away with her glove
I could tell by the look on her face she didn't need me
So I drifted on down and caught me a ride to the sea
The other tear said we've got a connection
I'm a tear of sorrow born of rejection
I'm from the sad brown eyes of her old flame
She told him they would be life-long companions
Left him with questions and not any answers
I was on his cheek as he stood there callin' her name
I could tell he had a lot of my friends for company
So I drifted on down and caught me a ride to the sea
Oh the ocean's a little bit bigger tonight
Two more teardrops somebody cried
One of them happy and one of them bluer than blue
The tide goes out and the tide comes in
And someday there'll be teardrops again
Released in a moment of pleasure for a moment of pain
And they drift on down and ride to the sea again
Last night I sat in the waiting room
The nurse walked in and gave me the news
It's a baby girl and they're both fine
Old man sittin' not ten feet away just lost his wife said to me
You've got brand new angel and I lost mine
I guess the Good Lord giveth and the Good Lord taketh away
And we both wiped a tear drop from our face
Oh the ocean's a little bit bigger tonight
Two more teardrops somebody cried
One of them happy and one of them bluer than blue
The tide goes out and the tide comes in
A whole new circle of life begins
Where tears are part of the pleasure and part of the pain
Till they drift on down and ride to the sea again
Two teardrops floatin' down the river
Two teardrops floatin' down the river
