TRACKS OF MY TEARS
Patty Griffin


People say I'm the life of the party 'cause I tell a joke or two

Although I may be laughing loud and hearty

Deep inside I'm blue


So take a good look at my face

You'll see my smile looks out of place

If you look closer it's easy to trace

The tracks of my tears


Since you left me if you see me with another guy

Looking like I'm having fun

Although he may be cute he's just a substitute

Because you're the permanent one


So take a good look at my face

You'll see my smile looks out of place

If you look closer it's easy to trace

The tracks of my tears


Outside I'm masquerading

Inside my hope is fading

I'm just a clown since you put me down

My smile is my makeup I wear since my breakup with you


Baby, so take a good look at my face

You'll see my smile looks out of place

If you look closer it's easy to trace

The tracks of my tears

So take a good look at my face

You'll see my smile looks out of place

If you look closer it's easy to trace

The tracks of my tears
