The Tears Come One at a Time

Nick Cardilino

 

I poured out my passion for years

It was always raining kisses or tears

My love was strong, but our fights went on

When I cried, oh how I cried

Now the tears come one at a time

 

This last fight came down like a flood

The dam broke, and love drowned in the mud

Blood-shot eyes, and cloudy skies

Are all that you left behind

Now the tears come one at a time

 

Here’s a tear of sadness

Now one that’s confused

Here’s a drop of madness

And one filled with the blues

 

How I wish I could sob and be done

Throw some dishes ‘til I broke my last one

Scream and shout, yell about

How I’m losing my mind

But the tears come one at a time

 

I loved strong, but our fights went on

When I cried, oh how I cried

Now the tears come one at a time
