Tears all over town
Tears all over town
Tears all over town

Don't be unkind, for once be untrue
Can't pretend I care for her, only you
Just be on time, spare me your shame
For once don't mention her name

Now I cannot claim angel's wings, no no
But mention her name and I'll wreck everything

I saw things not meant for my eyes
I was happy once and then twice
I said things I shouldn't have said
I told tales of days in your bed
In love and war there is nothing sacred

Just don't pretend, wherever you go
There are things that only I know
Because I'm sure, when she's there
That you tell a few of the secrets of yours
That I had kept for you

I saw things not meant for my eyes
I was happy once and then twice
I said things I shouldn't have said
I told tales of days in your bed
In love and war there's nothing sacred

Tears all over town
Tears all over town
Tears all over town
Tears all over town

I saw things not meant for my eyes
I said things I shouldn't have said
