Stone Roses – Tears lyrics

Our love, girl, is going through changes
I don't know if I'm alive, dead, dying or just a little jaded
Someone throw me a line
You know I need it, I need it bad

Lost in a maze of my own making
No way out that I can find, send home your hard working jury
I'm going down this time
You'd better believe it, yes, you had

So if you hear me crying, or talking in my sleep
Don't be afraid, it's just the hours that I keep
We gotta love to last for a million years
A love that could never fade through the tracks of your tears
All I can do is hope that you will see me fall
Do your best to smash my picture on your wall
Forgive me baby, absolve me, my dear
I've seen the future in the tracks of your tears

I've seen the future in the tracks of your tears
Of your tears, of your tears

I cast a shorter shadow with every passing day
No time to think I'm just fading away
Some kind of magic in all your hopes and fears
Show me the future through the tracks of your tears
