Two Teardrops


Two teardrops were floating down the river.
One teardrop said to the other,
I’m from the soft blue eyes of a woman in love.
I’m a tear of joy, she couldn’t carry,
She was so happy she just got married.
I was on her cheek when she wiped me away with her glove.
I could tell from the look on her face she didn’t need me.
So I drifted on down and caught me a ride to the sea.

The other tear said we’ve got a connection,
I’m a tear of sorrow born of rejection.
I’m from the sad brown eyes of her old flame.
She told him they would be life-long companions.
Left him with questions and not enough answers.
I was on his cheek as he stood there calling her name.
I could tell he had a lot of my friends for company.
So I drifted on down and caught me a ride to the sea.

Oh, the Ocean’s a little bit bigger tonight,
Two more teardrops somebody cried
One of them happy and one of them bluer than blue.
The tide goes out and the tide comes in.
Someday there will be teardrops again,
Released in a moment of pleasure or a moment of pain.
Then they drift on down and ride to the sea again.

Last night I sat in the waiting room,
A nurse walked in and gave me the news.
It’s a baby girl and they are both fine.
An old man sitting not 10 feet away has lost his wife,
And said to me, You’ve got a brand new angel, and I’ve lost mine.
I guess the good Lord giveth and the good Lord taketh away.
And we both wiped a teardrop from our face.

Oh the ocean’s a little bit bigger tonight.
Two more teardrops somebody cried.
One of them happy and one of them bluer than blue.
Tide goes out and the tied comes in,
A whole new circle of life begins
Tears are a part of the pleasure and part of the pain.
‘Til they drift on down and tide to the sea again
-Steve Wariner
