The Tracks of My Tears (1965) – Smokey Robinson & The Miracles

If you look closer, it’s easy to trace
The tracks of my tears
I need you (need you), need you (need you)
Since you left me if you see me with another girl
Seeming like I’m having fun
Although she may be cute

歌詞方面

填詞作曲由Smokey Robinson,Pete Moore及Marv Tarplin聯手打造

Tu do do do, tu do do do, tu do do do, tu do do do do do do
People say I’m the life of the party
‘Cause I tell a joke or two
Although I might be laughing loud and hearty
Deep inside I’m blue
So take a good look at my face
You’ll see my smile looks out of place

If you look closer, it’s easy to trace
The tracks of my tears
I need you (need you), need you (need you)

Since you left me if you see me with another girl
Seeming like I’m having fun
Although she may be cute

She’s just a substitute
Because you’re the permanent one
So take a good look at my face
Oh, you’ll see my smile looks out of place
If you look a little bit closer, it’s easy to trace
Oh, the tracks of my tears

Oh, I need you (need you), need you (need you)
Hey yeah, outside I’m masquerading

Inside my hope is fading
Just a clown oh yeah
Since you put me down
My smile is my make up

I wear since my break up with you
Baby, take a good look at my face
Oh, you’ll see my smile looks out of place
Yeah, just look closer, it’s easy to trace
The tracks of my tears, baby baby, baby, baby, baby, baby
Baby, take a good look at my face
Yeah, you’ll see my smile looks out of place
Ooh, look a little bit closer, it’s easy to trace
