Don’t waste your tears on me
Save ’em up and use ’em later
Cos baby you’ll lose someone who’s much better than me
Don’t waste your time on me
Be more careful with those hours
You’re spending them like you’ve got ’em to spare
But baby, no one does
Right now you think what’s the use of trying
I ain’t gonna find nobody new
Well save those tears cos now ain’t when to cry ’em
When you lose someone better that’s when to do so
Don’t waste your life on a dream
Someone better’s out there for ya
You’re wasting time that could be better spent
Cos our time’s at its end
Right now you think what’s the use of trying
I ain’t gonna find nobody new
Well save those tears cos now ain’t when to cry ’em
When you lose someone better that’s when to do so
Don’t waste your tears on me
Save ’em up and use ’em later
Cos baby just believe me
You’ll lose someone much better
You’ll lose someone who’s a whole lot better than me
A whole lot better than me
A whole lot better than me
