Holly Cole – Don't Let The Teardrops Rust Your Shining Heart lyrics

Sorrow is a lonely road,
Rain alike your tears.
Its heavy on the roof,
On the roof above your head.
Tomorrow is a lovers town,
That's been beaten down.
Hand of winter holds,
Life we've lived.
Instead of drowning in dispair,
For I find small comfort in a bottle
When we're apart.
They say don't let the teardrops rust you shining heart.
I used to drive all night for you,
While the children were asleep.
As the dawn broke on your roof,
Back into the house I'd creep.
Where my husband slept alone,
Of course he must have known.
For we always hide the truth
For fear of losing what we own.
So don't forget the words that we choose,
And constantly misuse.
For they were written down
Everytime we were apart.
They say don't let the teardrops rust your shining heart.
So don't forget the words that we choose,
And constantly misuse.
For they were written down
Everytime we were apart.
They say don't let the teardrops rust your shining heart.
Don't let the teardrops rust your shining heart.

    I always wondered whether this song was about a love affair. But I couldn't sort it out reading the lyrics. Pretty Much feel so, although. Sorrow for what?
    For living a hidden love story, and at the same time a normal clear life with husband and children at home! And the stealthy lovers cry because you cannot hide a true love for ever, but sometimes it will happen to come to the sunlight and then you will hurt the ones you love.
