Daniel Johnston – Tears lyrics

All the time was sad
All the lights were bright
You were not around
On my lonely night

And tears were dripping from my eye
And I was feeling like I could die

Love was leaving me
Packed it's bags to go
In a broken dream
It was such a drag

And I could cry like nothing was right
And I could die in the dead of night

And so I cry my tear
So sorry you're not here
My deepest darkest fear
The love that never was

Tears that hate me, tears that fake me
And you know I gotta go
Tears that wake me, tears that have me
And I know you had to go away

All the love we had
Have we all gone mad?
Like a T. V. Show
And we were all the cast

Like I would never see you again
Like the dream had just began
