Dueling Lyrics

Pomus, Shuman, Fagin: Tears Dry on Their Own

hiding_tears.jpg I wish I could sing no regrets
And no emotional debt
Cause as he kissed goodbye the sunsets
So we are history
A shadow covers me
The sky above a blaze
That Only lovers see

He walks away the sun goes down
He takes the day but I’m grown
And in your way
My blue shade
My tears dry on their own

He walks away the sun goes down
He takes the day but I’m grown
And in your way
My deep shade
My tears dry on their own

Arthur Hamilton, Cry Me a River:rivertears.jpg

Now you say you’re lonely
You cried the long night through
Well, you can cry me a river
Cry me a river
I cried a river over you
Now you say you’re sorry
For being so untrue
Well, you can cry me a river
Cry me a river
Cause I cried, I cried
I cried a river over you
You drove me,
Nearly drove me out of my head
While you never shed a tear
Remember?
I remember all that you said
Told me love was too plebeian
Told me you were through with me and
Now you say you say love me
Well, just to prove you do
Come on and cry me a river
Cry me a river
