The Tracks of My Tears” (1965) by The Miracles

People say I’m the life of the party
‘Cos 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)
Need you  (Need you)

Since you left me, if you see me with another girl
Seemin’ like I’m havin’ 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
Oh, look a little bit closer; it’s easy to trace
Oh, the tracks of my tears

I need you (Need you)
Need you  (Need you)

Outside, I’m masquerading
Inside, my hope is fadin’
I’m just a clown since you put me down
My smile is my make up
I wear since my break-up with you

Baby, 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
