Left alone, I'm not ashamed to say I had a cry
Been looking back, I lost my head but I don't know why
Turns out every night, all I cried was wasted tears, yeah
I can't erase, can't get back another yesterday
If I knew then what I know now, I would have walked away
It's so hard to breathe when I was buried alive, alive, alive

Boy, you really made me look before
You stole my heart and made it black and blue
But I can see now that the clouds are clear
I've been crying wasted, wasted tears
So take your promises, get on your way
I'm burning memories up in flame
Cause I see now that the clouds are clear
I've been crying wasted, wasted tears

I swear the Earth, the Universe was falling from the sky
You built me up to let me down broken lullaby
I kind of want you to feel what it's like to break, break, break

Boy, you really made me look before
You stole my heart and made it black and blue
But I can see now that the clouds are clear
I've been crying wasted, wasted tears
So take your promises, get on your way
I'm burning memories up in flame
Cause I see now that the clouds are clear
I've been crying wasted, wasted tears

Heavy crying, you were lying, I was dying
That's not love, that's not love
Heavy crying, you were lying, lying, I was dying, dying
That's not love, that's not love

Boy, you really made me look before
You stole my heart and made it black and blue
But I can see now that the clouds are clear
I've been crying wasted, wasted tears
So take your promises, get on your way
I'm burning memories up in flame
Cause I see now that the clouds are clear
I've been crying wasted, wasted tears

Turns out that every night, oh, I cried those wasted tears
