You Could Hear A Teardrop

Jerry Silverstein and Jay Janoski

 

 

I’ve got one foot out the door

I’ve got my heart in my hand

I’ve got a real sore throat from talking all night

Trying to make you understand

 

            So I’m walking away but I’m walking real slow

            Just to give you a chance to say “please don’t go”

            Any word from you would mean a lot

            Any hint of love would make me stop

            But it’s so, so quiet

            You could hear a teardrop

 

Well you should be ashamed

Would it hurt so much to call my name?

Don’t you remember when you called me your best friend?

Now you won’t even share the blame

 

            (chorus)

 

                        I don’t plan to cry anymore

                        Once you let my foot pass through this door

 

You see I’ve cried all I can cry

And I’ve tried all I can try

Now it’s in your court, the whole fight’s been fought

To say nothing is to say goodbye

 

            (chorus)

 

            So, so quiet

            You could hear a teardrop

            So, so quiet

            You could hear a teardrop
