"Tracks of My Tears (The Miracles cover)" as written by and Marvin/moore Tarplin....
People say I'm the life of the party
Because 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
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
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
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

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

    My InterpretationWhat i think this song is a bout granted its not a accurate meaning , But what this song means to me .. (lyrics)
    People say I'm the life of the party
    Because I tell a joke or two
    Although I might be laughing loud and hearty
    Deep inside I'm blue ( i may look happy but on the inside I'm sad )
    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 ( you'll see what i actually feel n see how hurt i'm )
    I need you, need you
    Outside I'm masquerading
    Inside my hope is fading
    Just a clown oh yeah ( you need someone but you feel like a clown because they don't care)
    Since you put me down
    My smile is my make up
    I wear since my break up with you ( you put me down but i try to fake a smile even though your hurting me on the inside )
    so thats what i think the song is about somebody trying to get over their ex by faking a smile but finally breaking down & showing them how they really feel
