    The Tracks Of My Tears by Smokey Robinson & The Miracles

    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

    Suicide is Satan's biggest lie. If you have thoughts of suicide, please go talk to someone you know has some knowledge of life's struggles. It can be a pastor or a psychologist, whatever. Just go and talk and keep talking.

    Mr. Thompson seemed like a thoughtful person and I like his attitude and outward concern for his fellow actors. I know the cast is torn up.

    I'll seriously miss him and “Rizzoli and Isles” will not be as entertaining.

    “He had killed himself in a statement on Monday.”
    Total crap writing and a crap editing job too. How do these people survive in a literate world…oh wait, America is illiterate.
