Here are the lyrics:

Cheryl Cole - Happy Tears

I cried when I heard you were cheating.
I cried when I said I was leaving.
I cried when my heart stopped believing.
But I'm all out of tears.

Then I feel so weak, but I know I'm strong.
So I wipe my face and I just move on.
My eyes are red and my cheeks are dry.
Singing my last goodbye.

[Chorus:]
I cut off my hair and I painted my toes.
I sold all the diamonds and burnt all your clothes.
I ain't ever gonna cry again.
I ain't ever gonna cry again.
I ain't ever gonna cry again.
Unless they're happy tears.

I bet you've been trying to call me.
I've locked all your numbers so you couldn't phone.
Don't wanna hear, baby, I'm sorry.
You don't get to apologise.

'Cos I'm not weak, I know I'm strong.
You hurt me once, your chance is gone.
Our love is dead but I'm still alive.
Singing our last goodbye.

[Chorus]

I cried when I slashed all your tyres.
I cried when your suits hit the fire.
I cried 'cos I'll never see you again.
But those are happy tears.

[Chorus]
