I read your letter
Tears filled my eyes
All of your promises failing
Nothing but lies
So I turned your photograph over face to the wall
And when I dim the light in my room tonight
Teardrops will fall

Teardrops will fall tonight
Tears I can't hide
Tears that I tried to keep deep down inside
Tears from the love that's gone beyond recall
And when I dim the lights in my room tonight
Teardrops will fall

I'm going to pray tonight baby
Hoping you will hear
Maybe you'll right the wrong and dry each tear
I'll sit alone tonight hoping you will call
And when I dim the light in my room tonight
Teardrops will fall

Teardrops will fall tonight
Tears I can't hide
Tears that tried to keep deep down inside
Tears from the love that's gone beyond recall
And when I dim the light in my room tonight
Teardrops will fall
When I dim the light in my room tonight
Teardrops will fall
