One Tender Tear

My friend's pouring out her heart to me
She's at the end of the line
Once again he's staying out all night
Telling the same old lies
I wish she'd find the kind of man
Who only wants to treat her right
A man who's always there for her
Like the one who's right here by my side

Then she could feel the kind of tears I cry
The falling of one tender tear
Would help her realize
Love should be the only reason
Teardrops fill her eyes
One tender tear would wash away
The million she's cried

After all the pain he's put her through
You'd think she'd learn by now
I pray someday she'll give her heart
To a man like I have found
I'm always first on his list
He's always at my fingertips
And I'm the one he can't resist
She needs to find a love like this

Then she could feel the kind of tears I cry
The falling of one tender tear
Would help her realize
Love should be the only reason
Teardrops fill her eyes
One tender tear would wash away
The million she's cried

If she can find the strength to let him go
Instead of hanging on with her eyes closed
Then someday she'll live to see
A tear of love rolling down her cheek
