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

  35. Edward Eusepi

    Because we live in an age of of immediate satisfaction. We think, speak and act for immediate gain. So in the case of entertainment the immediacy of sexual eye candy extracts profits by the very fact of attracting immediate attention. The sexualization, which has itself been merchandized, of art is a debacle. Not to say you can't have nudist art, its the sole role of objectification and hence consumption of the body, which is the problem.

  36. Ms bent

    one has to ask why artists with talent and integrity are excluded from the mainstream and soulless, dead behind the eyes tripe, continuously makes it to the top.

  37. TREMENDOUS!

    Never heard of her before, if they traded the likes of Rihanna and Nikki Manage in for artists like her i would happily turn my tv back on.

    Porscha P

    TREMENDOUS! 👌👌👌👌👌👌👌
