I look back into the past since we've parted
The last few days seem like a million years
Why was I so wrong and felt dishearted
A smile can't find it's way through all these tears.
I never cried until the day I lost you
But sorrow comes to make me pay my debt
And dear I owe the price it must have caused you
For I'm paying now with teardrops of regret.
The whole world seems to know I've been unfaithful
It's all my fault because we had to part
It hurts me deep within but still I'm thankful
That I can pay with teardrops in my heart.
I wish that I could the tell the tears unhiding
Or trade her broken heart in on my debt
But there's no sale for sorrow when you're crying
So I'm paying with teardrops of regret...
