Written for my favourite bartender after the one and only time we ever hung out.


When I see you in the bar room you're always smiling
But you know, I can't be deceived
It might work on other guys, but I see through your disguise
So you should leave your tears with me.

The last time I saw you it was raining
And you made up some excuse to leave
Well I guess I can comprehend if you don't know where you stand
Just know you can leave your tears with me.

Ch; Tears on my pillow
Tears running down your cheeks
Tears that you don't like carrying
So why don't you leave those tears with me?

I know that I've been hasty
And I know that I can be obscene
But I know all 'bout being blue, maybe even more than you
So you can leave your tears with me.

When the world is out to tear you
And you can't let them see you're weak
When you're feeling all alone, well I live on your way home
And you can leave your tears with me.
