Heavy Tears
written by John Hiatt

One day you're happy the next day you're blue
You feel like the whole world's comin' right down on you
There ain't nothin' wrong but then there ain't nothin' right
It's just the kind of thing that keeps you up all night

[Chorus:]
Heavy tears in your eyes
Lord don't they hurt you when you cry
Heavy tears in your eyes
And when they hit the ground don't they make a terrible sound

Maybe she loves you and maybe it's a joke
And maybe that fire was just a whole lot of smoke
You don't feel warm but then you don't feel cold
You're just gettin' weary you're just gettin' old

[Chorus]

And your mind can't take this worry and your heart feels underfed
Maybe you'll wake up tomorrow or maybe you'll just stay in bed

Don't call the doctor and ask his advice
Cause he's felt the same way himself once or twice
And there ain't no cure for the tear in your eye
You just gotta sit there you just gotta cry

[Chorus]
