Only Teardrops

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 till 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 till we get it right between us?
Only teardrops

 

What's gone between us has come between us
Only teardrops
(Tell me now) 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 till 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 till we get it right between us?
Only teardrops
