Wim Tapley - Dry Eyes (Single)

Dry Eyes

Another day

Another way that you made me the villain

Of the perfect story book in which you’re living

Should’ve known I never had a say

 

Another day

I remember how you spoke of your past princes

And the ways that they all fell short of your wishes

A list that just grew longer by the day

 

Even still it hurts sometimes

I know I shouldn’t

But I think of who I am in your mind

Even still it takes some trying

To catch a moment where I’ve thrown all of my thoughts aside

 

I wish that I’d just cry

I wish that I’d just cry

‘Cause it hurts to sit so still

And overanalyze

I wish that I’d just cry

Wish that I’d just cry

‘Cause then my mind might be quiet for the first time in a while

But I’ve still got dry eyes

 

Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh 

Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh

 

You know I think of all those nights that I drove home down 29

And how things never felt quite right

Then you fell cold

Now I feel blind

Should I believe a single thing you told me back when you were mine

Oh

 

Yesterday

I threw away your things and your phone number

So that I’ll never feel compelled to call you

You’ll never hear a thing I say

You wouldn’t listen anyway but I’m alone here

 

Wishing I’d just cry

Wishing I’d just cry

‘Cause it hurts to sit so still

And overanalyze

Wish that I’d just cry

Wish that I’d just cry

‘Cause then my mind might be quiet for the first time in a while

But I’ve still got dry eyes
