Kept Me Crying
by Haim

Album: Something To Tell You (2017)
  • When you sleep, are you dreaming of me?
    Who's to say, but I'm always awake

    If you want me, I'm waiting for you
    If you call me, I'll pick up
    Know I shouldn't, but I can't give up as usual

    Kept me crying for so long, my tears have dried
    When I hear your voice, those tears they come back to mind
    So don't call me just to tell me
    You don't love me anymore
    Still it wrecks me 'cause

    I was your lover
    I was your friend
    Now I'm only just someone you call
    When it's late enough to forget
    I was your lover
    I was your friend
    Now I'm only just someone you call
    When it's late enough to forget

    When you leave, I can't stop my heart hurting
    Hurts to say I keep thinking you're staying

    If you want me, I'm waiting for you
    If you call me, I'll pick up
    Know I shouldn't, but I can't give up as usual

    Kept me crying for so long, my tears have dried
    When I hear your voice, those tears they come back to mind
    So don't call me just to tell me
    You don't love me anymore
    Still it wrecks me 'cause

    I was your lover
    I was your friend
    Now I'm only just someone you call
    When it's late enough to forget
    I was your lover
    I was your friend
    Now I'm only just someone you call
    When it's late enough to forget

    I've got to cover, I can't pretend
    That I'm anything more to you now
    Than someone just hard to forget
    And after all these tears
    After all my years of trying
    I don't wanna hear
    That nothing meant anything

    I was your lover
    I was your friend
    I was your lover
    I was your friend
    I was your lover
    I was your friend
    I was your lover
    I was your friend Writer/s: Alana Mychal Haim, Ariel Zvi Rechtshaid, Danielle Sari Haim, Este Arielle Haim, Rostam Batmanglij
