Nancy Sinatra – As Tears Go By lyrics

It is the evening of the day

I sit and watch the children play



I sit and watch as tears go by
Smiling faces I can see but not for me



My riches can't buy everything
I want to hear the children sing

Of rain falling on the ground
But all I hear is the sound


I sit and watch as tears go by




It is the evening of the day

I sit and watch the children play

Doing things I used to do
Oh but where are you

I sit and watch as tears go by

    Neilzo here A very sad song.
    The lyrics are correct, there are just some double or hidden meanings, here. I hear this being about a man who choose "things" like wealth, over family. He says "It's the evening of the day", I hear, "It's the evening of my life."
    "I want to hear the children sing.." I hear, "I want to hear MY children sing." but he either never had any children or he's left his family.
    All I hear is the sound of rain (my tears) falling on the ground, I sit and watch as tears (years) go by. My riches can buy everything. Can't buy what I know I've missed.
