Lyrics

Smokey Robinson

People say I'm the life of the party
'Cause 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,

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
'Cause you're the permanent one

So take a good look at my face
You' see my smile looks out of place
If you look a little bit closer it's easy to trace
The tracks of my tears

I need you...
Need you, need you,

Outside I'm masquerading
Inside my hope is fading
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

Baby, baby baby baby take a good look at my face
You'll see my smile looks out of place
Look a little bit closer it's easy to trace
The tracks of my tears
