“All I can ever be to you
is the darkness that we knew
and this regret I’ve 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 grown
and in your way
in this blue shade
my tears dry on their own.

I don’t understand
why do I stress a man
when there’s so many bigger things at hand
we coulda 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 shouldn’t play myself again
I should just be my own best friend
not fuck myself in the head with stupid men.

He walks away
the sun goes down
he takes the day
but I’m grown
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 grown
and in your way
in this blue shade
my tears dry on their own.

I wish I could say 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 grown
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’m grown
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 grown
and in your way
my deep shade
my tears dry”.

Citazioni.

Tears Dry on Their Own è un brano della cantante Amy Winehouse, quarto singolo pubblicato dall’album Back to Black. A causa del successo del singolo Rehab negli Stati Uniti l’uscita del singolo viene posticipata di due settimane (13 agosto 2007) rispetto alla release inglese (31 luglio 2007). Il videoclip è stato girato interamente per le strade di Hollywood. Tears Dry on Their Own contiene un sample del brano Ain’t No Mountain High Enough scritto dal duo Ashford & Simpson, cantato in origine da Marvin Gaye in coppia con Tammi Terrell, e più tardi da Diana Ross“.

Tears Dry on Their Own is a song by English singer and songwriter Amy Winehouse from her second and final studio album Back to Black (2006). “Tears Dry on Their Own” was released as the fourth single from Back to Black on 13 August 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. The original ballad version of the track is featured on the posthumous album Lioness: Hidden Treasures (2011). The song was featured in the documentary film based on the life and death of Winehouse, Amy (2015) and was also included on the film’s soundtrack.
The song’s music video was shot in Los Angeles, and was directed by David LaChapelle on 22 May 2007. The clip features footage of Winehouse making her way through Echo Park and in a dim motel room. The hotel is the Grand Motel at 1479 S La Cienega Blvd, in Los Angeles. She doesn’t pay attention to her surroundings (Why people walk into her) as she goes through Echo Park, and in the hotel room there are empty bottles and cigarettes hinting at her real life habits. The video for this song was the second to last filmed prior to Winehouse’s death on 23 July 2011.
Tears Dry on Their Own” became Winehouse’s fourth consecutive single to chart inside the top 40 of the UK Singles Chart, when it entered at number 37 on 5 August 2007. It also became her eighth UK R&B top 40 hit. The single spent four weeks at number one on the UK Airplay Chart during August. After the song’s physical release, the single climbed into the top 20, peaking at number 16. Therefore, “Tears Dry on Their Own” is Winehouse’s second highest-charting single behind “Rehab” and the fourth consecutive top 30 hit from her second album. To date, it has spent 19 non-consecutive weeks on the UK Singles Chart, making it her fourth longest-running hit behind “Rehab” (57 weeks), “Valerie” (39 weeks), and “Back to Black” (34 weeks). With sales of 84,750, “Tears Dry on Their Own” went on to become the UK’s 93rd best-selling single of 2007. On 31 July, 2011, the song re-entered the UK Singles Chart at 27 after Winehouse’s death”.
