Writer: Paul Howard
Contributed by: Felton Hall
Key: C
(C)With tears in my eyes, dear, I begged you to (F)stay
You couldn't for(G7)give me, so you went a-(C)way
I made a mistake, dear, by tellin' you (F)lies
Now I lay a(G7)wake, dear, with tears in my (C)eyes
No more to be sweetheart, no more to be friend
Please give me a chance, dear, and I'll make amends
My yesterdays haunt me, my weary heart cries
I just can't go on, dear, with tears in my eyes
If you ever need me, oh please let me know
Wherever you lead me, I'm willin' to go
The past is a flower, that withers and dies
I'll wake up tomorrow, with tears in my eyes
With tears in my eyes, dear, I begged you to stay
You couldn't forgive me, so you went away
I made a mistake, dear, by tellin' you lies
Now I lay awake, dear, with tears in my eyes
