If Teardrops Never Fell (Monchielle)

If teardrops never fell
Your words would still cut deep
It'd be a different place
For when it hurt me then
No tears would drench my face

If teardrops never fell
My eyes would not tell tale
The pillowcase would dry
Would I feel better then
If I could never cry

If teardrops never fell
I'd lose my sweet release
Kept bottled up inside
Angst would overcome me
If all teardrops were dried

If teardrops never fell
I'd take my place instead
In the arms of sorrow
To drown in my regret
Wishing for tomorrow

If teardrops never fell
I'd never speak my peace
My heart could never mourn
Or say a sad goodbye
If tears were never born
