(dwight yoakam)

I couldn't change your heart
I couldn't change your mind
So I just had to learn to live with
This empty life you left behind

You didn't try to hear
You didn't try to see
No you just stared right through the teardrops
Like there was nothing left of me

Nothing but sorrow, nothing but pain
Nothing but memories that whisper your name
Nothing but sadness, nothing but fear
Nothing but silence is heard around here

Bridges were burned
Lessons were learned
Promises made that were broken
Tender lies so softly spoken

You didn't try to hear
You didn't try to see
You just stared right through the teardrops
Like there was nothing left of me

Nothing but sorrow, nothing but pain
Nothing but memories that whisper your name
Nothing but sadness, nothing but fear
Nothing but silence is heard around here

Nothing but sorrow, nothing but pain
Nothing but memories that whisper your name
Nothing but sadness, nothing but fear
Nothing but silence is heard around here

Nothing but sorrow, nothing but pain
Nothing but memories that whisper your name
Nothing but sadness, nothing but fear
Nothing but silence is heard around here
