A Million Tears Ago

Author: Lyrics Beth Williams, BMI/Music&Vocal Wendy DuMond
The future ended yesterday
Saw the clues, but looked away
Fingers tremble on my cup of Joe
Memories might sneak up on me
Trip me up, and back I’ll be
In that dream, a million tears ago

Such a crying shame
I'm drowning in pain
Just barely afloat
Since you blew out the flame
No spark to relight it
No flicker of hope
Left from a Million Tears Ago

It’s noon but dark above my head
Can’t I please go back to bed
Wish I could just sleep this off, but no
Don’t see me escaping this
Can I fix things with a kiss
Like I did a million tears ago

When making love was sweet and slow
And promise fanned the afterglow

Such a crying shame
I'm drowning in pain
Just barely afloat
Since you blew out the flame
No spark to relight it
No flicker of hope
Left from a Million Tears Ago

But then the end came all too soon
Left hanging like a spent balloon
No parachute to break my fall below
But that’s the price, out on a limb
I’d go again, to be with him
Forever, like a million tears ago
