Teardrops, running down your face,

G          C                  G

Teardrops, running down your face.

D7              C           G           D

Staining, your skin and my skin and be-ginning,

    D7

The stories that you can't begin.

    D

The way I feel could be despised,

    D7

But it's a vision that I prize.

Chorus 1:

G           Cm   G

Teardrops, tear-drops.

    C                           G

I'm not trying to make you feel pain,

   D7                    G

Or joy to make the tears flow.

    Cm                 G            D          D7

But when they roll una-shamed; they move me so.

Teardrops, running down your face.

D7       C            G            D

Let me, let me brush them with my fingers;

D                D7

Comfort you and say it's alright.

D                     D7

It's so strong, this way I feel,

     D               D7

Some-times I want to beg or steal you.

Chorus 2:

G           Cm   G

Teardrops, tear-drops.

    C                           G

I'm not trying to make you feel pain,

Or joy to make the tears flow.

But when they roll una-shamed; they move me so.
