TEARDROPS FALLIN' ON THE GROUND

I'D NEVER SEEN THE RAIN POUR DOWN LIKE THAT BEFORE
THAT'S WHEN THE THUNDER CRIED, SHE DON'T LOVE YOU ANYMORE
AND NOW THE TEARS FILL THE LAKE WITHIN MY SOUL
AND DOWN THAT MUDDY RIVER RUNS SORROW
I USED TO THINK AW' THAT'LL NEVER HAPPEN TO ME
CAUGHT IN A RAGING STORM OF HURT AND MISERY
THAT LIGHTNING FLASH AND THE RAIN A POURIN' DOWN
LEFT ME BLINDED AND I ALMOST DROWNED

(chorus)
YOU KNOW I'VE BEEN HURTIN' DEEP INSIDE
AND I DON'T CARE IF YOU EVEN SEE ME CRY
CAUSE I KNOW SOMEDAY YOU'LL HEAR THE SOUND
OF TEARDROPS FALLIN' ON THE GROUND

NOW I KNOW WHY LOVERS SOMETIMES PART
JUST DIDN'T KNOW THAT LOVE WOULD BE SO HARD
AND I'M NOT SURE IF THE PAIN IS WORTH THE PRICE
YOU HAVE TO PAY TO GET IT RIGHT

(chorus) (chorus)
