It brings big tears
Into my eyes
When I began
When I began to realize
That I've cried so much
Oh, since you've been gone
I guess I'll drown in
Drown in my own tears
I've been crying
Just like a child
These tears of mine
These tears are running wild
And if you don't think
If you don't think that you'll be home soon
Baby, I'm going to drown, oh yeah, in my own tears
