Don't Shed a Tear Paul Carrack Cab fare to nowhere is what you are A white line to an exit sign is what you are Oh but I saw in you, now I see through Don't shed a tear for me, my life won't end without you Long as the night will be, the sun will rise without you A locked door on a candy store is what you are A slim chance in tight pants is what you are All that I loved you for, I want it more Don't shed a tear for me, my life won't end without you Long as the night will be, the sun will rise without you You are giving what I'm not taking I'm not missing what we ain't making Oh but I saw in you, now I see through Don't shed a tear for me, my life won't end without you Long as the night will be, the sun will rise without you Don't shed a tear for me, my life won't end without you Long as the night will be, the sun will rise without you Don't shed no tears, I don't need a thing. ---- With thanks to Joe Ganesh <joe.ganesh@bbc.co.uk> who answered the call !
