Carole King

Carole King - Tears Falling Down On Me

rate me

Vera comes home on Sunday morning after hanging with the boys all night

Laughing and drinking with them, thinking she's one of them

And that makes everything allright

She vaguely remembers going out in the parking lot

With the stone mason's son

Who had his way with her, then walked away when he was done

Sometimes she thinks about leaving--she tells herself, someday

You know, her daddy said she'd never amount to much

Of anything anyway

Oh, tears falling down on me

Oh, tears falling down on me

No, that ain't the way it's supposed to be

Oh, tears falling down on me

Oh, tears falling down on me

I've cried so many tears over man's unkindness to man

People say that's the way it is, but we gotta do what we can

Why does it have to be that way, I just don't understand

Rain falling from my eyes, rain falling from the sky

And I don't know why

A pack of jokers get their jollies beating up on a black king

There's outrage in the city for a while

But do you think it'll really change anything

Get rid of the gates, free the people

And let the games commence

We gotta take our power back

And use it in ways that make sense

Oh, tears falling down on me

Oh, tears falling down on me

If I could, I would change the course of history

Oh, tears falling down on me

Oh, tears falling down on me

Oh, tears falling down on me

Oh, rain washing over me

Oh, tears falling down on me

Oh, pain washing over me

Rain, wash it away, rain, wash it away

Wash the pain away, rain, wash it away

Oh, tears falling down on me

Oh, tears falling down on me
