Lyrics

Well, some midnights
When the lightning strikes
And it wakes me
I hear the lover's cry
Coming from the sky
And it takes me

To where the culverts slide
And the gators crawl
They don't run from tears so strong
It's pouring down, burnin' up the ground
As they're fallin'

Daddy told me once
"You'd better listen, son
"Start believin'
"You might think you're tough
"But it ain't enough
"When she's leavin'

"Someday you're gonna cry
"Those tears so strong
"Gonna wash them tattoos off your arms
"Gonna break it down, it's a lonely sound
"As they're fallin'"

Tears so strong
What went wrong
What's done is done
I got a heavy one
As they're fallin'

Tears so strong
Can't hold on
Until the Kingdom comes
I'm countin' every one
As they're fallin'

I'll never see her again
Or breathe her fire
Only she could dry
These tears of mine

Well, I've gotta make sense
Of the time that's left
In a hurry
I'm going blind
'Cause I'm always cryin'
And it's blurry

Well, there's nothin' worse
Than these tears so strong
It'd rust a knife through a voodoo doll
It's pourin' down, burnin' up the ground
As they're fallin'

Tears so strong
What went wrong
What's done is done
I got a heavy one
As they're fallin'

Tears so strong
Can't hold on
Until the Kingdom comes
I'm countin' every one
As they're fallin'

I'll never see her again
Or breathe her fire
Only she could dry
These tears of mine
