  Oh Mercy session 8, The Studio, New Orleans LA - 21 or 22.mar.1989, overdub 16.apr.1989, album version  

Far away where the soft winds blow
Far away from it all
There is a place you go
Where teardrops fall.

Far away in the stormy night
Far away and over the wall
You are there in the flickerin' light
Where teardrops fall.

We bang the drum slowly and play the fife lowly
You know the song in my heart
In the turning of twilight in the shadows of moonlight
You can show me a new place to start.

I've torn my clothes and I've drained the cup
Strippin' away at it all
Thinkin' of you when the sun comes up
Where teardrops fall.

By rivers of blindness in love and with kindness
We can hold up a toast if we meet
To the cutting of fences to sharpen the senses
That linger in the fireball heat.

Roses are red violets are blue
And time is beginnin' to crawl
I just might have to come see you
Where teardrops fall.  up
