  • Here come those tears again
    Just when I was getting over you
    Just when I was going to make it through
    Another night without missing you
    Thinking I might just be strong enough after all
    When I hear your footsteps echoing in the hall

    Baby here we stand again
    Where we've been so many times before
    Even though you looked so sure
    As I was watching you walking out my door
    But you always walk back in like you did today
    Acting like you never even went away
    Well I don't know if I can
    Open up and let you in baby
    Here come those tears
    Here come those tears again

    I can hear you telling me
    How you needed to be free
    And you had some things to work out alone
    Now you're standing here telling me
    How you have grown
    Here come those tears again
    Now you'll tell me how to hold them in
    Here come those tears
    Here come those tears again

    Some other time baby
    When I'm strong and feeling fine maybe
    When I can look at you without crying
    You might look like a friend of mine
    But I don't know if I can
    Open up enough to let you in
    Here come those tears
    Here come those tears again

    Walk away
    I'm going back inside and turning out those lights
    And I'll be in the dark but you'll be out of sight Writer/s: JACKSON BROWNE, NANCY FARNSWORTH
