As tears go by

As tears go by

Marianne Faithfull

(Mick Jagger – Keith Richards, 1964)

It is the evening of the day
I sit and watch the children play
Smiling faces I can see
But not for me
I sit and watch as tears go by


My riches can’t buy everything
I want to hear the children sing
All I hear is the sound
Of rain falling on the ground
I sit and watch as tears go by


It is the evening of the day
I sit and watch the children play
Doing things I used to do
They think are new
I sit and watch as tears go by


Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm
Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm
Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm

I’m rocking out to As Tears Go By by Marianne Faithfull from the album Blazing Away
