Tears

 I started out to be the man behind the scenes
 Knowing I was in above my head
 For all that I could see I never saw the truth
 Now I'm alone
 Heaven only knows how much I'm missing you
 Knowing I had heaven in my hands
 And there will be tears
 Tears are mixed with rain
 Keeper of my flame
 Time and tide is on my side, it stands forever
 There will be nights of love and yes there will be tears
 I will not sleep tonight
 There will be tears tonight
 I will not sleep tonight
 There will be tears
 The silent telephone, the turning of the key
 You're still inside of me, I'm not ashamed
 For all that I can do, I can't forget your face
 I call your name
 Heaven only knows what I've been crying for, what I'm crying for
 And all I've done to keep this love alive
 Even through my tears
 Tears are mixed with rain
 Keeper of my flame
 I will pray you're on my side, we stand forever
 There will be nights of love and yes there will be tears
 I will not sleep tonight
 There will be tears tonight
 I will not sleep tonight
 There will be tears
  Soon there will be tears rollin' down my world
 Keeper of my flame
 Time and tide is on my side, it stands forever
 There will be nights of love and yes there will be tears
 I will not sleep tonight. There will be tears tonight
 I will not sleep tonight. There will be tears
 I will not sleep tonight. There will be tears tonight
 I will not sleep tonight. There will be tears
