Black Tears

"Anything Like Me"

Black Tears


She puts on her work clothes
Fishnet panty hose
She’s got a nickname everybody knows at the Gentlemen’s club
She clocks in at midnight
Even though it never feels right
Makes her money one dollar at a time
Without the makeup
Nobody knows her name
She wears the pain

Black tears
Rollin down
From the eyes of an angel in a sinner’s town
She reveals
They all cheer
Then she cries
Black tears

Jealous of the innocent
Sometimes she’s convinced
The boss man is still a friend she needs
She’s tried everything
Cheap sex and cocaine
Anything to hide the pain for a little while
Wrong kind of famous in her momma’s eyes
You can tell she knows it when she cries

Black tears
Rollin down
From the eyes of an angel in a sinner’s town
White lights on the mirror
Just won’t hide
Black tears

She tries and tries so hard to get away
But everybody’s watching

Black tears
Rollin down
From the eyes of an angel in a sinner’s town
If all the pain could just disappear
She'd quit cryin
She’d quit cryin
Black tears
