Amy Winehouse: Tears Dry On Their Own

All I can ever be to you is a darkness that we know
And this regret I got accustomed to
Once it was so right when we were at our high
Waiting for you in the hotel at night

I knew I hadn’t met my match but every moment we could snatch
I don’t know why I got so attached
It’s my responsibility and you don’t owe nothing to me
But to walk away, I have no capacity

He walks away, the sun goes down
He takes the day but I’m gone
And in your way in this blue shade
My tears dry on their own

I don’t understand, why do I stress the man
When there’s so many better things at hand
We could a never had it all, we had to hit a wall
So 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 **** myself in the head with stupid men

He walks away, the sun goes down
He takes the day but I’m gone
And in your way in this blue shade
My tears dry on their own

So we are history, your shadow covers me
The sky above, a blaze

He walks away, the sun goes down
He takes the day but I’m gone
And in your way in this blue shade
My tears dry on their own

I wish I could sing no regrets and no emotional debts
‘Cause as we kiss goodbye the sun sets
So we are history, the shadow covers me
The sky above, a blaze that only lovers see

He walks away, the sun goes down
He takes the day but I’m gone
And in your way my blue shade
My tears dry on their own

He walks away, the sun goes down
He takes the day but I am gone
And in your way my deep shade
My tears dry on their own

He walks away, the sun goes down
He takes the day but I’m gone
And in your way my deep shade
My tears dry

“Tears Dry on Their Own” is a song written and recorded by English singer-songwriter Amy Winehouse for her second studio album, Back to Black (2006). It was released as the album’s fourth single on 31 July 2007. While the melody and lyrics are composed by Winehouse, the music behind her voice is a sample interpolation of Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell’s 1967 Motown classic hit “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”, penned by the married duo of Ashford & Simpson.
