"Tears of Pearls" is a song by Savage Garden, released as the seventh and final single taken from their eponymous self-titled debut album. The song was later included on the remix disc of The Future of Earthly Delites, as the Tears on the Dancefloor Mix. There are two distinct versions of this mix; the original, and a version included on later pressings of the album, containing more reverb on the vocals.


The single was available exclusively in selected areas of Europe.[2] The music video for "Tears of Pearls" features tour footage from the group's Future of Earthly Delites tour. It was directed by Adolfo Doring. The music video features on the group's home video release, The Video Collection, and in edited form on the VHS release of The Story So Far.[3]

The cover art for the single was also used for the 1998 re release of "I Want You" in the United Kingdom, and the release of "Santa Monica" as a single in Japan.
