Jason Michael Carroll – Tears lyrics

Paid first and last month's rent, I don't know why I even carried in this old bed of mines
It's not like I ever sleep
All I do is think of her, and wonder how I'm gonna make things work
Cause I know as a dad I got a lot of responsibility
Even tho God gave this gift to the both of us
Some how every other weekend is how it ended up

When the telephone rings, I drop everything
Cause when all you got is that 8 o'clock, nite nite dad I miss you a lot
I stop in my tracks, I try to act strong when she calls
And I thank God she can't hear tears... When they fall

Now it's her Dr. Seuss and me and she's learning how to read
And I can't see those pictures, but I can hear those pages turn
And her mother says it bath time, as she blows a kiss through the line
I don't kno what's worse saying goodbye, or talking to her
Cause I'm the one that should be there tucking her in the bed
But since her voice is all I have I'm thankful for what I get

(Repeat chorus)

If she knew I was crying she might think it's her fault, oh but that's just me missing her
Every time we talk... Every time we talk

(Repeat chorus)
