as tears go by lyrics – vanessa paradis

it is the evening of the day
i sit and watch the children play
smiling faces i can see, but not for me
i sit and watch as tears go by

my riches can’t buy everything
i want to hear the children sing
all i ever hear is the sound of rain falling on the ground
i sit and watch as tears go by

it is the evening of the day
i sit and watch the children play
doin’ things i used to do, they think they are new
i sit and watch as tears go by
mm mm mm…
