Lyrics
The light in the window is a crack in the sky
A stairway to darkness in the blink of an eye
A levee of tears to learn she'll never be coming back
The man in the dark will bring another attack

Your momma told you that you're not supposed to talk to strangers
Look in the mirror tell me do you think your life's in danger, ya

No more tears, tears, tears
No more tears, tears, tears
(No more tears, tears, tears
No more tears, tears, tears)(for long version)

Another day passes as the night closes in
The red light goes on to say it's time to begin

I see the man around the corner waiting, can he see me?
I close my eyes and wait to hear the sound of someone screaming here

No more tears, tears, tears
No more tears, tears, tears
No more tears, tears, tears
No more tears, tears, tears

(Spoken:)
It's just a sign of the times
Going forward in reverse.
Still, he who laughs last
is just a hand in the bush.

So now that it's over can't we just say goodbye? bye bye Good bye
I'd like to move on and make the most of the night
Maybe a kiss before I leave you this way
Your lips are so cold I don't know what else to say

I never wanted it to end this way my love, my darling
Believe me when I say to you in love I think I'm falling here

No more tears, tears, tears
No more tears, tears, tears
No more tears, tears, tears
No more tears, tears, tears

(spoken)

He's just a hand in the bush
