May, Imelda - Black Tears Lyrics




Black tears
One will fall for every good year
Rolling down my face
Inside I'm dying
Outside I'm crying black tears

Your kiss killed me on that night
As your lips left a bitter taste
And inside I'm dying
Outside I'm crying black tears

How did it all go wrong
We seemed to have it all
But it's broken
And I'm running
And I'm scared
So I pray to God above
It's a sin when we don't love
It's so quiet
Can you hear me
Are you there

Black tears
Please be gone so I can see clear
Keep calm and carry on
But inside I'm dying
Outside I'm crying black tears

How did it all go wrong
We seemed to have it all
But now it's broken
And I'm running
And I'm scared, so scared
So I pray to God above
'Cause it's a sin when we don't love
It's so quiet
Can you hear me
Are you there

Black tears
One will fall for every good year
Rolling down my face
Inside I'm dying
Outside I'm crying, crying, crying black tears

    Search on here for the live version with Jools Holland - simply amazing live vocals and a way more heartbreaking rendition :*( I saw Imelda live when she used to sing with Blue Harlem and we watched her do the warm up and knew the minute she opened her mouth that WOW, that was a voice..........

    Black tears 
    One will fall for every good year 
    Inside I'm dying 

    Outside I'm crying black tears

    Your kiss killed me on that night
    As your lips left a bitter taste
    And inside I'm dying
    Outside I'm crying black tears

    How did it all go wrong
    We seemed to have it all
    But it's broken
    And I'm running
    And I'm scared
    So I pray to God above
    It's a sin when we don't love
    It's so quiet
    Can you hear me
    Are you there

    Black tears
    Please be gone so I can see clear
    Keep calm and carry on
    But inside I'm dying
    Outside I'm crying black tears

    How did it all go wrong
    We seemed to have it all
    But now it's broken
    And I'm running
    And I'm scared, so scared
    So I pray to God above
    'Cause it's a sin when we don't love
    It's so quiet
    Can you hear me
    Are you there

    Black tears
    One will fall for every good year
    Rolling down my face
    Inside I'm dying
    Outside I'm crying, crying, crying black tears
