Aretha Franklin – Drown In My Own Tears lyrics

It brings big tears into my eyes,
When I began, When I began to realize,
That cried so long,
Since you've been gone,
I guess I'm drowning drowning in my own tears,
I been crying Just like a child
These tears of mine, these tears are runnin' wild
And if you don't think, If you don't think that you'll be home soon
Baby I'm going to drown, Oh yeah, in my own tears

Here without you (You)
I get so lonely and I sure got blue (Blue)
Yes I do
It seems to keeps raining (raining) raining and raining
More and more (More and more)
Without you baby
I sure get lonely and I get so blue
You know for a time I look around it's raining
More and more More and more More and more
Why can't you, (You) Why can't you
Why can't you Come on home (you Come on home)
Because I don't want to be
I don't want to Be here all alone
Listen, If you don't think (If you don't think)
If you don't think that you're coming home soon
You got me (think)
I believe I'm going to drown this morning (drown)
I tell you that I'm going to drown this evening (drown)
I guess that I'll
(drown in my own tears)
Ooh, don't lettum' let me, don't lettum' let me,
Don't lettum' let me,
Don't lettum' let me, don't lettum' let me (drown)
Drown in my own tears (drown)
Im going to drown yeah in my own tears (tears) (tears) (tears) My tears (tears)
Oh, don't let them do it
Don't let them do it
Don't let them do it
Drown in my own tears.
