lyrics

SHED A TEAR EVERY DAY

Feels like it’s been so long
Since you’ve been gone
Though they tell me
That it’s only been a short time

Whatever did I do
That could have made you
Just stand up and leave
What could have been my crime

And I’ll shed a tear every day
Darlin that you stay away
No comforting thing
Anybody can say

No diverting song anybody can play
No hope-giving soul-nurturing ray
I’ll shed a tear every day

And if I could
You know I would make it all better
Tell you I’m sorry write it down
Send it off in a letter

And if only they could find you
Those words would remind you
And you’d come runnin back into my arms

But since you said “see you later”
I can only wait here
And wonder
“Where can my baby be”

Not sure if I’ll ever know
Why did you go
But I’ll cling to this hope
That you’ll return to me

And I’ll shed a tear every day
Darlin that you stay away
No comforting thing
Anybody can say

No diverting song anybody can play
No hope-giving soul-nurturing ray
I’ll shed a tear every day
I’ll shed a tear every day
