WHERE DO ALL THE TEARDROPS GO?
Mama, from where do all the teardrops come, before they leave the eye?
Child, they come from many places, from deep down inside,
They come from heart & soul, from sadness & from joy,
Escaping through the eyes, of every little girl & boy.
Mama, to where do all the teardrops go, once they´ve left the eye?
Child, once they´ve washed the pain away, they go back up to the sky,
Then through the heart & soul again, they´ll be ready to be cried,
Teardrops are God´s kisses child, for all pains to be dried.
Sometimes tears are wept, just to release an aching pain,
Sometimes tears are cried, just because of joy that´s gained,
Teardrops come & go my child, to those who are strong or weak,
Tell me now my child, why is that little teardrop escaping down your cheek?
