Tears Always Win

Album: Girl On Fire (2012)
  • Check it out
    It feels kinda crazy

    These covers
    May keep me warm at night
    But they can't take your place
    'Cause they never gonna hold me tight

    And these pillows
    May let me rest my head
    But they can't say good night
    And tuck me in before I go to bed

    Say now baby girl you're better off
    That's what I'm telling myself (over and over)
    But I'm lying to myself
    'Cause I know I don't want nobody else

    These lips are missin' you
    'Cause these lips ain't kissin' you
    These eyes put up a fight
    But once again these tears always win
    These arms are wantin' you
    'Cause these arms ain't holdin' you
    These eyes put up a fight
    But once again these tears always win

    These candles
    Light up my room at night
    But they can't light the room they way you did
    When you walked inside, oh baby

    If these walls could sing
    About everything they've witnessed
    Oh it'd be a sad sad song
    And it'll probably sound something like this

    Say now baby girl you're better off
    That's what I'm telling myself (over and over)
    But I'm lying to myself
    Cause I know I don't want nobody else

    'Cause these lips are missin' you (Missin' you)
    'Cause these lips ain't kissin' you (Kissin' you)
    These eyes put up a fight
    But once again these tears always win
    These arms are wantin' you (Wantin' you)
    'Cause these arms ain't holdin' you (Holdin' you)
    These eyes put up a fight
    But once again these tears always win

    Tell me when the hell this loneliness is gonna be over (Gonna be over)
    When everything in this room reminds me of you (You)
    Every time I think, I'm getting closer
    'Cause tears drown me out, once again I lose

    'Cause these lips are missin' you (Missin' you)
    'Cause these lips ain't kissin' you (Kissin' you)
    I put up a fight
    But once again these tears always win
    These arms are wantin' you (Wantin' you)
    'Cause these arms ain't holdin' you (Holdin' you)
    These eyes put up a fight
    But once again these tears always win

    Crying like oh oh
    These eyes put up a fight
    But once again these tears always win
    Crying like oh oh
    These eyes put up a fight
    But once again these tears always win
    These eyes put up a fight
    But once again these tears always win Writer/s: Jeff Bhasker, Alicia Augello-Cook, Peter Gene Hernandez, Philip Lawrence
