  • Ooh
    Na-na, yeah

    I saw you dancing in a crowded room
    You look so happy when I'm not with you
    But then you saw me, caught you by surprise
    A single teardrop falling from your eye

    I don't know why I run away
    I'll make you cry when I run away

    You could've asked me why I broke your heart
    You could've told me that you fell apart
    But you walked past me like I wasn't there
    And just pretended like you didn't care

    I don't know why I run away
    I'll make you cry when I run away

    Take me back 'cause I wanna stay
    Save your tears for another
    Save your tears for another day
    Save your tears for another day

    So, I made you think that I would always stay
    I said some things that I should never say
    Yeah, I broke your heart like someone did to mine
    And now you won't love me for a second time

    I don't know why I run away, oh, girl
    Said I'll make you cry when I run away

    Girl, take me back 'cause I wanna stay
    Save your tears for another
    I realize that I'm much too late
    And you deserve someone better
    Save your tears for another day (ooh, yeah)
    Save your tears for another day (yeah)

    I don't know why I run away
    I'll make you cry when I run away

    Save your tears for another day, ooh, girl (ah)
    I said save your tears for another day (ah)

    Save your tears for another day (ah)
    Save your tears for another day (ah) Writer/s: Abel Tesfaye, Ahmad Balshe, Jason Matthew Quenneville, Martin Karl Sandberg, Oscar Thomas Holter

  • Max from New ZealandYou Completely skipped over the part in the song when he whispers "Selena" As soon as the "ooh girl" line ends as well as the girl portrayed in the Music video as being Selena Gomez.
