Michael McDonald - Tracks Of My Tears Lyrics

People say I'm the life of the party
Cause I tell a joke or two
Although I might be laughing loud and hearty
Deep inside I'm blue

So take a good look at my face
You'll see my smile looks out of place
Just look closer, it's easy to trace
The tracks of my tears
I need you, need you

Since you left me if you see me with another girl

Seeming like I'm having fun
Although she may be cute she's just a substitute
'Cause you're the permanent one


Outside, I'm masquerading
Inside, my hope is fading
Just a clown, oh yeah since you put me down
My smile is my make-up I wear since my break-up with you

  8. hydropolite

    this guy is genius but i dont know why he is wasting time on these motown songs - they dont have the R and B/jazz depth that his own songs have - the only exception is stevie wonder's tuesday heartbreak - i bet if you asked him he would agree

    Toby Baker

    His record company, Universal, bought Motown and decided to exploit the song catalogue.


    What?! Are you being serious?
