"How Many Tears" as written by Oliver J Leiber and Paul Peterson....
I see myself when I look in your eyes
And all of the sadness you're keeping inside
Oh baby can't you see
If anyone knows, if anyone knows it's me

So many years I tried to pretend
That I would live on in silence my friend
Then something changed in me
Funny how love, it's funny how love sets you free

Don't run away
From my love it could save you
If only you'll stay

How many tears will you cry in the dark
'Till you let me close to your heart
Doesn't the loneliness tear you apart
Let me get close to your heart

"What can I do?" I hear you say
Feels like I'm frozen or driftin' away
Can my love unlock the door?
And you won't be lonely, you won't be lonely no more

Hold me, hold me tight and don't let go
There's just one thing that you got to know
And that is love it holds the key, baby
So why don't take it, why don't you take it from me

Don't run away
From my love it could save you
If only you'll stay

How many tears will you cry in the dark
'Till you let me close to your heart
Doesn't the loneliness tear you apart
Let me get close to your heart

How many tears will you cry in the dark
'Till you let me close to your heart
Doesn't the loneliness tear you apart
Let me get close to your heart

Oh you just can't keep me away
Not another day, baby
You gotta open up and let me in
Don't try to run away 'coz I got so much to say
I could love you if you'd let me get close to your heart

[Repeat until fade]
How many tears will you cry in the dark
'Till you let me close to your heart
Doesn't the loneliness tear you apart
Let me get close to your heart
