Tears Don't Fall

Alarm don’t ring in the morning
So you’re left out on the road
Roommate drank all the coffee
Now I’m damned if I don’t wake up

Plains stretch out for the eastern bays
And the wind tears down the road
You, longing for a holiday
But I turn us back to work

So the mountains are blue
But my words/ they don’t fool you
Oh there’s sweat on your brow
But your tears/ they don’t fall down

When you call me up on a payphone
You know I faked a sleepyhead
Fool me more than I fool you
Stack years of regret

So the mountains are blue
But my words they don’t fool you
Oh there’s sweat on your brow
But your tears they don’t fall down
