  • The sky is red tonight
    We're on the edge tonight
    No shooting star to guide us

    Eye for an eye, why tear each other apart?
    Please tell me why, why do we make it so hard?
    Look at us now, we only got ourselves to blame
    It's such a shame

    How many times can we win and lose?
    How many times can we break the rules between us?
    Only teardrops

    How many times do we have to fight?
    How many times 'til we get it right between us?
    Only teardrops

    So come and face me now
    Here on the stage tonight
    Let's leave the past behind us

    Eye for an eye, why tear each other apart?
    Please tell me why, why do we make it so hard?
    Look at us now, we only got ourselves to blame
    It's such a shame

    Tell me, how many times can we win and lose?
    How many times can we break the rules between us?
    Only teardrops

    How many times do we have to fight?
    How many times 'til we get it right between us?
    Only teardrops

    (Tell me how) What's gone between us has come between us
    Only teardrops
    (Tell me how) What's gone between us has come between us

    How many times can we win and lose?
    How many times can we break the rules between us?
    Only teardrops

    How many times do we have to fight?
    How many times 'til we get it right between us?
    Only teardrops, only teardrops

    Only teardrops
    Only teardrops

    How many times can we win and lose?
    How many times can we break the rules between us?
    Only teardrops

    How many times do we have to fight?
    How many times 'til we get it right between us?
