You want to know how much I care
I promise these words are true
If you were a teardrop in my eye
I would never cry for fear of losing you

you worry I may leave
walk away from your door
put aside your insecurities
I couldn't love you more

Your past is where you were hurt
we're in a brand new day
wipe away your troubles
I know I'm here to stay

You want to know how much I care
I promise these words are true
If you were a teardrop in my eye
I would never cry for fear of losing you

I understand you're fearful
you were hurt so much before
so take my hand try to understand
I'll be here for evermore

You want to know how much I care
I promise these words are true
If you were a teardrop in my eye
I would never cry for fear of losing you

It's got a nice warm, sentimental feel to it Alan.

I'm not sure I buy into the "If you were a teardrop in my eye" line though. It doesn't feel very complimentary, even though I get how you are using it in the next line.

I like how "wipe away your troubles" is consistent with the theme.

It’s a pleasant, smooth flowing lyric with a nice chorus. I’d probably cry just hearing it as a song, defeating the whole concept. But I like it anyway.

Such an emotional song! Every time I think I've written a song that pull on the heartstrings, you show me how it's really done! :)

This is so sweet. It's simple words said very well.

I might consider dropping the I here:
"Your past is where you were hurt
I know I'm here to stay" - Know I am here to stay.

I also feel that the last verse is very similar to the one before. If you could draw on another idea that might be even better.
