Lyrics

ARTIFICIAL TEARS

On the train to Memphis
In the month of May
We crossed the Mississippi
The sky a dirty grey
Then you started crying
Then you had your say
You told me that your love had turned
to stone

V2
Words of empty promise
All you had in mind
Should’ve seen it coming
Should’ve seen the signs
Some might say I’m deaf
Others that I’m blind
You left me in that station all alone

Chorus:
Artificial Tears
Artificial Tears
All you ever cry
Are Artificial Tears
Artificial Tears
Artificial Tears
All you ever cry
Are Artificial Tears


V3
Concertina wire
Circling your heart
Love was nothing more
Than murmurs in the dark
Eyes of an angel
Instincts of a shark
You numbed me just as if you were a fix

CHORUS


Bridge
Someday you’ll awake and the joke’s on you
Remember all the things that you put me through
Empty pockets and the bill comes due
And the whole world’s crashing all
around you

V4
If I’m just a fool
Will I have my day
Will there be a point
When the memory fades away
I know I’m not the first one
Still I’ve got to say
Betrayal is the only truth that sticks


Chorus
