Week 12 – I Won’t Give You My Tears

This is a song about leaving. When you walk away from a relationship, sometimes you tell it straight to your partner’s face; sometimes you just leave a note on the dresser. I think the lyrics speak for themselves.

Once you’ve decided enough is enough, and it’s time to go, just go. You might find yourself wondering why you didn’t leave earlier. Yes, you’re still hurting, but you’ve decided not to give any more – not even your tears – and that could be the best decision.

I Won’t Give You My Tears

Verse 1
Another battle last night, and I wake up alone
Sunlight streams into the room, but the bed’s cold as stone
I knew at some point, we would hit a wall
Now that day has come, I’m feeling nothing at all

Chorus
By the time you get this note I’ll be gone
No point in looking for me, I’ve turned off my phone
This house was never a home
I gave you the best years of my life, you know
No, I won’t give you my tears, not any more

Verse 2
Honestly, I should have done this long ago
But I held my tongue, went on with the show
Your words were as worthless as water on the floor
I’ve waited for change, but I’m waiting no more

Chorus
By the time you get this note I’ll be gone
No point in looking for me, I’ve turned off my phone
This house was never a home
I gave you the best years of my life, you know
No, I won’t give you my tears, not any more

Bridge
Don’t know where I’m going, don’t know who to blame
I needed you to make me whole, guess I waited in vain

Verse 3
Life flashes by as fast as the trees on the road
A load is taken off my heart, the further I go
But the scars of a thousand cuts will always remain
I’m not giving you the chance to hurt me again

Chorus
By the time you get this note I’ll be gone
No point in looking for me, I’ve turned off my phone
This house was never a home
I gave you the best years of my life, you know
No, I won’t give you my tears, not any more
