Tears Dry (Original Version)

All I can ever be to you,
Is the darkness we once knew,
And this deep regret I had to get accustomed to
Once it felt so right
Anticipation at its height,
Lived in and waiting in hotel room late at night

I knew I hadn’t met my match,
With every moment we could snatch,
I don’t know why I let myself get so attached,
It’s my responsibility,
And you don’t owe nothing to me,
But to cut myself off I had no capacity

[Chorus]:
He walks away,
The sun goes down,
He takes the day but I’m grown,
And in your grey, in this cool shade,
My tears dry on their own,

I don’t understand,
Why do I stress a man,
When there’s so many better things than him at hand,
We could have never had it all,
We had to hit a wall,
And this is inevitable withdrawal,
Even if I stop wanting you,
A perspective pushes through,
I’ll be some next man’s other woman soon,

I cannot play myself again,
I should just be my own best friend,
Not fuck myself in the head with stupid men,

[Chorus]:
He walks away,
The sun goes down,
He takes the day but I’m grown,
And in your grey, in this cool shade,
My tears dry on their own,

Wish I could say no regrets
And no emotional debt
And as we kiss goodbye
The sun behind you sets
So we are history
Your shadow covers me,
The sky above,
A blaze that only lovers see

[Chorus]:
He walks away,
The sun goes down,
He takes the day but I’m grown,
And in your grey, In this cool shade,
My tears dry on their own,

He walks away,
The whole sun goes down,
He takes the day but I’m grown,
Baby, in your grey
In this cool shade,
My tears dry on their own,

Yeah, leave your grey to shade
My tears dry on their own

In your grey
In this cool shade
My tears dry on their own

In your grey
In this cool shade
My tears dry on their own
