Tracks of My Tears People say I'm the life of the party Because 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 If you 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 Because you're the permanent one. . So take a good look at my face You'll see my smile looks out of place If you look closer, it's easy to trace The tracks of my tears. . I need you, need you 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. . So take a good look at my face You'll see my smile looks out of place If you look closer, it's easy to trace The tracks of my tears
