Dry Your Tears . . .

Recommended Posts

Yet another great example of oustanding chorus breaks.

Explosive to say the least:

Poem

Overbearing panic attack entrenching my veins

In an hour I'll be okay

I pray this pain will go away permanently someday

I've seen more than I should have to

I've seen this all on my own

This song is a poem to myself, it helps me to live

In case of fire break the glass and move on into your own

your own

Reoccurring drowning effect entrenching my brain

I hope you'll be okay someday so i can say that you've moved on in the right way

We've seen this and we've breathed this in

We've lived this on our own

This song is a poem to myself, it helps me to live

In case of fire, break the glass and move on into your own

BREAK!!

I use to listen to this song all the time when it came out, I even have the album. And I just remembered it about while reading this thread, I like the lyrics and the music. He has a cool voice too.

Mourning

Is there something that you’re trying to say

Don't hold back now

It's been a long time since I felt this way

So don't hold back now

I purposely forgot about

Loving anyone

Cause I'm the only one who has

Who has been stepped upon

Is there something that you’re trying to say

Cause I can take it

Cause I grew up a man this way

If I'm hurt I'll shake it

I'll crawl back into my cave

That's how I'll make it

Cause out of all this hurt we have

Beauty thus become

Beauty thus become

[Chorus:]

In the mourning I can see the sights

No wonder I could never keep you satisfied

In the mourning I can see inside

Myself and all the things that you were trying to hide

[Repeat]

Wishing all the best for you

And now I’ll say goodbye

Cause all the ******* that we've been through

Put wisdom in my eyes

So walk away, don't turn around

Cause I won't be standing here

Cause all the lies that I've been living through

Are becoming very clear

And beauty thus become

Oh yeah, ah

[Chorus]

Then you conned me into thinking

That all I had was you

The small insinuations

Were cutting me through

Cutting me through

And now I stand alone here

Stronger than before

And I'll never go back

Never go back

Never go

everytime I see the thread title I have to think of:

Dry Your Eyes ~ The Streets

In one single moment your whole life can turn 'round

I stand there for a minute starin' straight into the ground

Lookin' to the left slightly, then lookin' back down

World feels like it's caved in - proper sorry frown

Please let me show you where we could only just be, for us

I can change and I can grow or we could adjust

The wicked thing about us is we always have trust

We can even have an open relationship, if you must

I look at her she stares almost straight back at me

But her eyes glaze over like she's lookin' straight through me

Then her eyes must have closed for what seems an eternity

When they open up she's lookin' down at her feet

Dry your eyes mate

I know it's hard to take but her mind has been made up

There's plenty more fish in the sea

Dry your eyes mate

I know you want to make her see how much this pain hurts

But you've got to walk away now

It's over

So then I move my hand up from down by my side

It's shakin', my life is crashin' before my eyes

Turn the palm of my hand up to face the skies

Touch the bottom of her chin and let out a sigh

'Cause I can't imagine my life without you and me

There's things I can't imagine doin', things I can't imagine seein'

It weren't supposed to be easy, surely

Please, please, I beg you please

She brings her hands up towards where my hands rested

She wraps her fingers round mine with the softness she's blessed with

She peels away my fingers, looks at me and then gestures

By pushin' my hand away to my chest, from hers

Dry your eyes mate

I know it's hard to take but her mind has been made up

There's plenty more fish in the sea

Dry your eyes mate

I know you want to make her see how much this pain hurts

But you've got to walk away now

It's over

And I'm just standin' there, I can't say a word

'Cause everythin's just gone

I've got nothin'

Absolutely nothin'

Tryin' to pull her close out of bare desperation

Put my arms around her tryin' to change what she's sayin'

Pull my head level with hers so she might engage in

Look into her eyes to make her listen again

I'm not gonna fuckin', just fuckin' leave it all now

'Cause you said it'd be forever and that was your vow

And you're gonna let our things simply crash and fall down

You're well out of order now, this is well out of town

She pulls away, my arms are tightly clamped round her waist

Gently pushes me back and she looks at me straight

Turns around so she's now got her back to my face

Takes one step forward, looks back, and then walks away

Dry your eyes mate

I know it's hard to take but her mind has been made up

There's plenty more fish in the sea

Dry your eyes mate

I know you want to make her see how much this pain hurts

But you've got to walk away now

It's over

I know in the past I've found it hard to say

Tellin' you things, but not tellin' straight

But the more I pull on your hand and say

The more you pull away

Dry your eyes mate

I know it's hard to take but her mind has been made up

There's plenty more fish in the sea

Dry your eyes mate

I know you want to make her see how much this pain hurts

But you've got to walk away now.

Still, country has and always will produce the best sad songs.

I missed this oh-so-true quote and felt the need to add one of my favourite brooding and hopelessly sad country songs. This man needs no introduction . . .

barstool waiting 4 U!

Two doors down there's a jukebox

That plays all night long

Real sad songs

All about me and you

Two doors down there's a barmaid

That serves 'em real strong

Here lately

That's how I make it through

Two doors down there's a heartache

That once was my friend

Two doors down there's a memory

That won't ever end

Two doors down there's a barstool

That knows me by name

And we sit there together

And wait for you

Two doors down there's a bottle

Where I take out my shame

And hold it up

For the whole world to view

Two doors down there's a pay phone

But no calls come in

Two doors down there's a memory

That won't ever end

From the hotel to the barroom

Is just a stumble and a fall

And sometimes when it gets bad

I've been known to crawl

Freedom from sorrow

Is just two doors away

I'll escape for a short time

But I know I can't stay

Two doors down is where they'll find me

When you're finally through

Taking what's left of my life

Two doors down is where they'll leave me

When payment comes due

For the hours I've spent there each night

Two doors down I'll be forgotten

But until then

Two doors down there's a memory

That won't ever end . . .

A couple more from the world of coutry:

"Is It Cold In Here" - Joe Diffie

"I will Always Love You" - the original Dolly Parton version not the Whitney Houston version,a song Dolly wrote about her love for her mentor,maybe lover,Porter Wagoner. Dolly and Vince Gill also did a pretty good version a few years ago,but the original is without a doubt the best and a tear jerker.

I like this one. It's country and when I first heard it brought a lump to my throat. I got it for my DH and he loved it to.

Confederate Railroad

When You Leave That Way You Can Never Go Back

I remember waking in the morning

To the sound of the rooster's crow

Mamma cooking in the kitchen

Arthur Godfrey on the radio

Me and Dad were just like strangers

We never did see eye to eye

Came to blows one Sunday morning

So I packed my bags and I said goodbye

CHORUS

When you leave that way you can never go back

A train won't run on a torn up track

Sometimes I wish I'd never roamed,oh no

'Cause when you leave that way you can never go home

Then I met a girl in Knoxville

Oh, we set our wedding day

I left her standing at the alter

With a baby on the way

REPEAT CHORUS

Lord I'd love to see my mom and daddy

And what I'd give to hold that boy of mine

I'd get down on my knees and I'd say I'm sorry

If I could only go back one more time

But I killed a man in Houston

When he caught me with his wife

And I told the preacher man to leave me alone

When he came to read my rights

CHORUS

He said son,when you leave this way you can never come back

A soul won't roll on a torn up track

All through eternity you'll roam alone

'Cause when you leave this way you can never come home

All through eternity you'll roam alone

'Cause when you leave this way you can never come home

Take It on Faith ~ Joshua Kadison

Hey, I didn't mean a thing I said last night.

I swear I didn't mean a word I used.

You don't have to listen, baby. You have every right

to feel that heart of yours has been abused.

I know I've used up all my chances a long, long time ago

and I really don't deserve to call you mine,

but, if I told you that I loved you,

could I lay back down beside you?

Could you take it on faith one more time?

Look at me I'm crying... imagine me crying.

Well, it's time I learned to anyway,

'cause if you're really set on one of us leaving,

I guess there's really nothing left to say.

It seems like such a shame,

but baby, I could never blame you, baby,

for leaving this old story far behind

and if I told that I love you,

could I lay back down beside you?

Could you take it on faith one more time?

I know I promised to you before

I wouldn't do anything to hurt you no more

If I could take it all back and start again...

take it all back well maybe then,

I could tell you that I love you.

I could lay back down beside you.

I could tell you that I love you, I could lay back down beside you.

If I told you that I love you, could I lay back down beside you?

Could you take me on faith one more time?

Todd Rundgren

Can We Still Be Friends ~ Todd Rundgren

We cant play this game anymore

But can we still be friends

Things just cant go on like before

But can we still be friends

We had something to learn

Now its time for the wheel to turn

Grains of sand, one by one

Before you know it, all gone

Lets admit we made a mistake

But can we still be friends

Heartbreaks never easy to take

But can we still be friends

Its a strange, sad affair

Sometimes seems like we just dont care

Dont waste time feeling hurt

Weve been through hell together

Can we still get together sometime

You know life will still go on and on and on

We awoke from our dream

Things are not always what they seem

Memories linger on

Its like a sweet, sad old song

When my first love and I broke up a lifetime ago this song was one I listened to over and over, and yes we are still friends to this day.

You like? Here's another cool track by Low from the "Drums And Guns" album: "Belarus"

Lyric:

Belarus

To my mouth

Frozen shut

Mother's son

Paper cup

Belarus

Belarus

Belarus

Belarus

Pressing light

Brighter sound

Black and white

Fading now

Belarus

Belarus

Belarus

Belarus
