(I have cried my last tear)
(There will be no more my dear)
'Cause I ran (I ran out of tears)
For you (for you)

I searched a long, long time
To find a girl and peace of mind
I picked you out, I thought you were right
You kept me crying day and night

I got over you at last
All my crying is in the past
No more sorrow, no tears and pain
I've tried hard to be your man

(I have cried my last tear)
(There will be no more my dear)
'Cause I ran (I ran out of tears)
For you (for you)

I'm sorry it took me so long
To find out that you was wrong
That's alright, it took a little time
To get you out of my mind

Now it's all over, it's all in the past
No more crying for me at last
No more sorrow, no tears and pain
I've tried hard to be your man

(I have cried my last tear)
(There will be no more my dear)
'Cause I ran (I ran out of tears)
For you (for you)
