Eternal - How Many Tears Lyrics




I see myself when I look in your eyes
And all of the sadness you're keeping inside
Oh baby can't you see
If anyone knows, if anyone knows it's me

So many years I tried to pretend
That I would live on in silence my friend
Then something changed in me
Funny how love, it's funny how love sets you free

Don't run away
From my love it could save you
If only you'll stay

How many tears will you cry in the dark
'Till you let me close to your heart
Doesn't the loneliness tear you apart
Let me get close to your heart

"What can I do?" I hear you say
Feels like I'm frozen or driftin' away
Can my love unlock the door?
And you won't be lonely, you won't be lonely no more

Hold me, hold me tight and don't let go
There's just one thing that you got to know
And that is love it holds the key, baby
So why don't take it, why don't you take it from me

Don't run away
From my love it could save you
If only you'll stay

How many tears will you cry in the dark
'Till you let me close to your heart
Doesn't the loneliness tear you apart
Let me get close to your heart

How many tears will you cry in the dark
'Till you let me close to your heart
Doesn't the loneliness tear you apart
Let me get close to your heart

Oh you just can't keep me away
Not another day, baby
You gotta open up and let me in
Don't try to run away 'coz I got so much to say
I could love you if you'd let me get close to your heart

How many tears will you cry in the dark
'Till you let me close to your heart
Doesn't the loneliness tear you apart
Let me get close to your heart

[repeat chorus to fade]

  2. Tyrone Smith

  3. PRINCESS DeeDee

    One of their greatest ballads ever..... this "I cry real tears"...."if she breaks your heart" and "angel of mine"

    Angela saggy face

    I agree😊

  4. MusicBlue22

    why wasn't this a single ill never understand my favorite song off the before the rain album #classix

    LeroneClarkeOliverYT

    MusicBlue22 it was planned as a single but due to the success of 'I Wanna be' they rushed a greatest hits out instead

    PRINCESS DeeDee

    This was planned to be their third single ......but there was a lot of issues within the group and communication break down at the time ....so they collectively chose angel of mine from their greatest hits project to end as a threesome. Kelle was sacked due to her lack of commitment and attitude but ventured on with a solo deal and project . She completed an unreleased album but unfortunately was hit by lupus. Vernie and easther carried on with the eternal album with lack lustre success and then decided to call it a day.
