COUNTRY LYRICS With Brake Bars (The Collection) Kindle Edition
RAIN (rewrite)
Woke again this morning to an achin' heart
Dreams of yesterday tearing my world apart
Saddling my brain, I'm a man in chains
A lost & lonely drowning man, drowning in my pain

hook:
Rain rain go away, I'm beggin' please please please
Rain rain go away, I'm beggin' on my knees
Take away this pain, release me from these chains
Of love that walked away, & turned my blue sky gray

I've given all I can to be an honest man
I gave my heart & soul, forever is what she stole
She turned & walked away, leaving me to stay
Standing in the pouring rain, feeling so much pain

hook:
Rain rain go away, I'm beggin' please please please
Rain rain go away, I'm beggin' on my knees
Take away this pain, release me from these chains
Of love that walked away, & turned my blue sky gray

It seems so unfair that I’d be in despair
I gave my heart, from the very start
But I'm the one in pain, standing in the rain
A lost & lonely drowning man, shackled down in chains

hook:
Rain rain go away, I'm beggin' please please please
Rain rain go away, I'm beggin' on my knees
Take away this pain, release me from these chains
Of love that walked away, & turned my blue sky gray

A MAN WILL CRY
A man will cry when he lose his soul
When he falls & the truth unfolds
A man will cry when he hurts inside
When the pain takes hold & a bottle takes its toll

hook:
A man will cry, he’ll hide his tears
In a bottle, he’ll drown his fears
Take defeat, as a lesson learned
Take the pain, where he can yearn
At the bottom of a cup, a man down on his luck
Sitting at the bar, still waiting for love

A man will cry, he’ll hide his tears
In a bottle, he’ll drown his fears
Take defeat, as a lesson learned
Take the pain, where he can yearn
At the bottom of a cup, a man down on his luck
Sitting at the bar, still waiting for love

TEARS IN MY COFFEE
She says that she loves me, that I have her heart
Those are the words she whispers, when we have to part
Don’t she understand, forever is my plan
But when she walks away, I feel I'm led astray

hook:
There’s tears in my coffee, sadness in my bed
How can I shake the fear, of what I really dread
Cause I think she's cheatin', I hope it's just a lie
I don't wanna believe, I'm just the other guy
There’s tears in my coffee, sadness in my bed
How can I shake the fear, of what I really dread
Cause I think she's cheatin', I hope it's just a lie
I don't wanna believe, I'm just the other guy

The ring in my pocket, it cost a hundred grand
But somethin' keeps tellin' me, to abandon my plan
Only for two hours, do I see her for a day
Then like Cinderella, she has to run away

hook:
There’s tears in my coffee, sadness in my bed
How can I shake the fear, of what I really dread
Cause I think she's cheatin', I hope it's just a lie
I don't wanna believe, I'm just the other guy
There’s tears in my coffee, sadness in my bed
How can I shake the fear, of what I really dread
Cause I think she's cheatin', I hope it's just a lie
I don't wanna believe, I'm just the other guy

I followed her one day, to take the pain away
I just had to see, was she cheatin' me
But to my surprise, there were teardrops in her eyes
Sitting by her mother's bed, the day her mother died

THIS LOVE THANG
Sitting here by the phone wondering if you're home
If you're thinking about me I wish I could see
I'm pacing the floor staring at the door
Once my emotions were sure I don't know anymore

hook:
This love thang has got me going crazy
This love thang is driving me insane
For the first time in my life I feel your pain
This love thang has got me going crazy
This love thang is driving me insane
For the first time in my life I feel your pain

I know I said so many things I know I done you wrong
I know I can't turn back time but baby I'm losin’ mind

hook:
This love thang has got me going crazy
This love thang is driving me insane
For the first time in my life I feel your pain
This love thang has got me going crazy
This love thang is driving me insane
For the first time in my life I feel your pain

ONE LAST TEAR
hook:
One last tear my dear, one last tear
One last tear my dear, one last tear
One last tear my dear, one last tear
I know we said goodbye

I know we said goodbye, but my heart can't tell a lie
Turning back the years, of when you were near
All the joy & laughter, keep ringing in my ear
Dreams of yesteryear, keep calling that one last tear

hook:
One last tear my dear, one last tear
One last tear my dear, one last tear
One last tear my dear, one last tear
I know we said goodbye

From holding hands & laughter, from dancing in the rain
A picnic in the park, it was such a beautiful start
How did we lose, with what we had to choose
With the world at our feet, how did we fall to defeat

hook:
One last tear my dear, one last tear
One last tear my dear, one last tear
One last tear my dear, one last tear
I know we said goodbye
