Goapele – Tears On My Pillow lyrics

I think I finally understand
How you could love someone and leave them.
It must be hard to be a man
Holding back so many feelings.
I saw you slip away
Long before you gave reasons
Couldn't hold you down if you wanted to go

Each time I try,
My tears land straight on my pillow
Each time I try,
My tears land straight on my pillow
Each time I try,
My tears land straight on my pillow
Cause there's no other way for me to let go

I didn't wanna even care
I didn't wanna even miss you
Cause you told me you'd be there
Now should I even try to reach you?
I look in the mirror
I see your face in mine
And it's much clearer now
I need you in my life

But, each time I try,
My tears land straight on that pillow
Each time I try,
My tears land straight on that pillow
Each time I try,
My tears land straight on that pillow
Cause there's no other way for me to let go

I see it in your eyes
Your laugh is a disguise
It used to be magic to me
You're giving me no choice
I hear it in your voice
And it's so sad to me
But I think forgiveness is the season
Wish you could stay I have my reasons
I'm still trying to hold on
To something that's gone
Can't make you stay here with me

Oh but each time I try,
It's like I'm crying in vain
Each time I try,
My tears land straight on that pillow
Each time I try,
My tears land straight on that pillow
Cause there's no other way for me to let go

Each time I try,
My tears land straight on that pillow
Each time I try,
My tears land straight on that pillow
Each time I try,
My tears land straight on that pillow
Cause there's no other way for me to let go
