  • I can't feel
    Feel a thing
    I can't shout
    I can't scream
    Breathe it out
    Breathe it in
    All this love
    From within

    I won't cry when you say goodbye
    I'm out of tears
    And I won't die when you wave goodbye
    I'm out of tears
    Out of tears

    I won't drink
    I won't eat
    I can't hear
    I won't speak
    Let it out
    Let it in
    All this pain
    From within
    And I just can't pour my heart out
    To another living thing
    I'm a whisper
    I'm a shadow
    But I'm standing up to sing

    I won't cry when you say goodbye
    I'm out of tears (out of tears)
    I won't die when you wave goodbye
    I'm out of tears, yes I am
    I won't cry, I swear my eyes are dry
    I'm out of tears, yeah (out of tears)
    I won't cry, I'm going to tell you why
    I'm out of tears
    Out of tears
    Out of tears

    Let it out
    From within
    Some you lose
    Some you win
    I can drift
    I can dream
    'Til I float
    Off your screen
    And I just can't pour my heart out
    To another living thing
    I'm a whisper
    I'm a shadow
    But I'm standing up to sing

    And I won't cry when you say goodbye
    I'm out of tears (out of tears)
    I won't die when you wave goodbye
    I'm out of tears, out of tears
    I won't cry, I swear my eyes are dry
    I'm out of tears, out of tears
    I won't cry, I'm going to tell you why
    I'm out of tears
    Out of tears

  • Jimmy J Jamesson from South Of The South Of The SouthYou don't really understand this song until one day when, unfortunately, you might find out.
  • Terra L.hottman from Manhattan, KsI'd bought my 1st RS albm back in '97 and this was it- my favorite song off the album. It's hard 2 believe it's been that long- still such a beautiful song. I'm about #OutOfTears now but, good music like this here keeps me going, like a #Rollingstone
  • Alastair from Stranraer, United KingdomOne of the Stones superior late-era ballads. The added storm and rain effects on the video soundtrack, help to enhance the melancholic mood of the song.
  • Jonathan from Tampa Bay, FlThe performance of the song doesn't do the lyric justice. No offense to the Stones, but this isn't simply sadness. It's defiance through the fact the singer is hurting but he won't let the object that hurts him keep him down. "I'm a whisper / I'm a shadow / but I'm standing up to sing" -- he's been beaten down but life goes on. There are some beautiful lyrics, but the arrangement and pace of the song weighs it down immensely.
  • Ethan from Portland, Orworst song on Voodoo Lounge
  • Homero from Monterrey , MexicoThis is a song we haven t aprecciated at all. Let s hear the guitars and the piano. Its a beautiful song.
  • Charlie from Thomaston, Cti was sure that this song was a classic from the 70's the first couple of times i heard it
