Who ever said the hand is quicker than the eye
Has never tried to brush away a tear
Quicker than a wink there'll be something inf your eye
You can't beat a tear if you try

Tears of joy have graced us all
Tears of sorrow sometimes and all
Some tears betray you just before you know
Some tears don't ever show

Some tears are harder than stone
Some tears are better left alone
I've seen them kept in bottles
I've seen `em left to dry
You can't beat a tear if you try
