DRY EYES

Don’t cry me a river with dry eyes.

Don’t say that you care for me

When all you tell are lies.

You weren’t there when I needed you.

What else was I supposed to do?

Don’t cry me a river with dry eyes…

 

Don’t pretend you love me, it’s not fair.

All the time I believed in you,

You didn’t really care.

In the darkest of my needs.

See how my heart and soul now bleeds?

Don’t’ pretend you love me, it’s not fair.

 

My life is getting stronger every day.

Looking through these clearing eyes,

I’m seeing past the haze.

Happiness begins with me.

It’s what and who I’m going to be.

My life is getting stronger every day.

 

I hope you find your way out in this life.

We fought for years but in the end

I couldn’t be your wife.

I gave you all that I could give.

My prayer for you – go out and live.

I hope you find your way out in this life.

 

Don’t cry me a river with dry eyes…

Oh-oh, don’t cry me a river with dry eyes…
