(Michael Weston King)

There’s a tear behind your smile
It’s been there all the while
It says, I’ll never have you for my own

With every kiss that you bestow
It speaks ‘I told you so’
You won’t ever leave him
You’re not cruel enough to go

A heart of marble, a face of stone
That’s what I’ve come to own
I can’t be weak and let my feelings show

And my tears, they never fall
I am braver than us all
While you fall to pieces
I stand strong and tall

Oh, darling, come quickly
I hear he’s fading fast
With each last breath, I’m closer to your heart

No darling, step back now
Take the pillow from his face
Love won’t survive the murder, on your part

There’s a tear behind my smile
And it’s been there for a while
It says, I’ll never have you for my own

Oh, darling, come quickly
I fear he’s fading fast
With each last breath, I’m closer to your heart

No darling, step back now
Take the pillow from his face
Love won’t survive the murder, on your part

Today they’ll put me on trial
Guess I’ve been there all the while
No longer will I see your tear stained smile
No longer will I see your tear stained smile
No longer will I see your tear stained smile
