  • I want my tears back
    The treetops, the chimneys, the snowbed stories, winter grey
    Wildflowers, those meadows of heaven, wind in the wheat

    A railroad across waters, the scent of grandfatherly love
    Blue bayous, Decembers, moon through a dragonfly's wings

    Where is the wonder where's the awe
    Where's dear Alice knocking on the door
    Where's the trapdoor that takes me there
    Where's the real is shattered by a Mad Marsh Hare

    Where is the wonder where's the awe
    Where are the sleepless nights I used to live for
    Before the years take me
    I wish to see
    The lost in me

    I want my tears back
    I want my tears back now

    A ballet on a grove, still growing young all alone
    A rag doll, a best friend, the voice of Mary Costa

    Where is the wonder where's the awe
    Where's dear Alice knocking on the door
    Where's the trapdoor that takes me there
    Where's the real is shattered by a Mad Marsh Hare

    Where is the wonder where's the awe
    Where are the sleepless nights I used to live for
    Before the years take me
    I wish to see
    The lost in me

    Where is the wonder where's the awe
    Where are the sleepless nights I used to live for
    Before the years take me
    I wish to see
    The lost in me

    I want my tears back
    I want my tears back now

    Where is the wonder where's the awe
    Where are the sleepless nights I used to live for
    Before the years take me
    I wish to see
    The lost in me

    Where is the wonder where's the awe
    Where are the sleepless nights I used to live for
    Before the years take me
    I wish to see
    The lost in me

    I want my tears back
    I want my tears back now Writer/s: ERNO VUORINEN, JUKKA NEVALAINEN, MARKO HIETALA, TUOMAS HOLOPAINEN
