Jackie Wilson – The Tear Of The Year lyrics

I never thought I'd see,
You turn your back on me,
And taste another kiss with such delight.

It hurt me so inside,
Oh Lord,
I musta' cried,
The tear of the year,
Last night.

And darlin'
When I heard,
That final, crushing word,
That someone else's arms would hold you tight.,
I wished that I was dead.

Oh Lord,
You konow I shed,
The tear of the year,
Last night.

I built my whole world around you,
By each and every dream.
And now you're slipping,
Through my fingers,
Like the ripples,
In a stream.

Oh darlin',
You can say,
Our love has seen it's day.
But I'll forever go on feelin' blue.

I feel the hurt inside,
I felt the night I cried,
The tear of the year,
Over you.

The tear,
Of the year,
Over you.
