Save Your Tears
The Weeknd Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Ooh
Na-na, yeah

I saw you dancing in a crowded room
You look so happy when I'm not with you
But then you saw me, caught you by surprise
A single teardrop falling from your eye

I don't know why I run away
I'll make you cry when I run away

You could've asked me why I broke your heart
You could've told me that you fell apart
But you walked past me like I wasn't there
And just pretended like you didn't care

I don't know why I run away
I'll make you cry when I run away

Take me back 'cause I wanna stay
Save your tears for another
Save your tears for another day
Save your tears for another day

So, I made you think that I would always stay
I said some things that I should never say
Yeah, I broke your heart like someone did to mine
And now you won't love me for a second time

I don't know why I run away, oh, girl
Said I'll make you cry when I run away

Girl, take me back 'cause I wanna stay
Save your tears for another
I realize that I'm much too late
And you deserve someone better
Save your tears for another day (ooh, yeah)
Save your tears for another day (yeah)

I don't know why I run away
I'll make you cry when I run away

Save your tears for another day, ooh, girl (ah)
I said save your tears for another day (ah)

Save your tears for another day (ah)
Save your tears for another day (ah)

Line by Line Meaning

I saw you dancing in a crowded room
I noticed you enjoying yourself in a group of people


You look so happy when I'm not with you
You appear to be in high spirits when I'm not around


But then you saw me, caught you by surprise
However, when you spotted me, it took you aback


A single teardrop falling from your eye
A tear rolled out of your eye


I don't know why I run away
I'm uncertain why I flee from my problems


I'll make you cry when I run away
When I run away, I'll cause you to weep


You could've asked me why I broke your heart
You had the opportunity to query me about why I hurt you emotionally


You could've told me that you fell apart
You could have confided in me that you were disintegrating emotionally


But you walked past me like I wasn't there
Instead, you strolled past me as if you didn't see me


And just pretended like you didn't care
And acted as if you weren't affected


Take me back 'cause I wanna stay
Allow me to return because I want to be with you


Save your tears for another
Don't cry for me


Save your tears for another day
Hold your tears off until some other time


So, I made you think that I would always stay
I gave you the impression that I would never abandon you


I said some things that I should never say
I made some statements that I should not have uttered


Yeah, I broke your heart like someone did to mine
I shattered your heart like another person had shattered mine before


And now you won't love me for a second time
As a result, you won't love me again


I don't know why I run away, oh, girl
I'm still unsure why I run away, my dear


Said I'll make you cry when I run away
I already knew that whenever I take off, you'll weep


Girl, take me back 'cause I wanna stay
Please welcome me back because I wish to remain with you


I realize that I'm much too late
I acknowledge that I'm too tardy


And you deserve someone better
And you deserve someone superior to me


Save your tears for another day (ooh, yeah)
Hold your tears off until another day


Save your tears for another day (yeah)
Abstain from shedding tears for me for now


Save your tears for another day (ah)
Hold your tears off until another day


Save your tears for another day (ah)
Hold your tears off until another day

@@vinny9152 Everybody is wearing a mask. The fanciest masks that they could find... ones that adequately covered/hid their true selves. Except the main singer. He is ALMOST his true self but not quite. He's not wearing a mask but he still cant bring himself to be 100% transparent.

The woman that he's drawn to IS her true self.... the one real person in the entire place. She's not trying to hide herself or portray herself as something she's not; she's just herself.

He searches the entire room, intently studying everyone but nobody was worth anything; especially in comparison the The One. Nobody was worth his respect or admiration.
"You could have told me that you fell apart. You could have told me that I broke your heart"

He hurt the one true woman in his life. He searched for someone to fill those shoes but couldn't find anyone to match the radiance of her true self...
"and now you wont love me for a second time"
"I dont know why I run away"
"I make you cry when I run away"
"I realize that im much to late and you deserve someone else....... save your tears for another day"

There are only 2 people who can truly hurt him.... her and himself.

He is expressing his deep pain.

Today I have something to say to you ...
JESUS ​​LOVES YOU
So great Love that he died on a cross for all of us, was resurrected, and gives us salvation, because we were condemned from the beginning, but now we can approach God, through Jesus Christ.

In Romans 6: 23 it says:
Because the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus,
our Lord .

The wages of sin is death, that is, sin leads to death.
But there is a gift from God, which is free, Eternal Life

So why die in sin, if you can have Eternal Life for free with God?

This is your chance, this is the way
Walk with Christ, no more walking alone
Don't leave it for tomorrow, what could be now
Jesus is coming, now is the time!

@anonymoususer9542

Guys I know I'm being annoying right now but please hear me out. I'm a 15 year old kid who faced bullying, and I wrote a song about that. I think you guys should listen to it because the people who get bullied will be able to relate to it, and others would know what it's like. It's called "k grip - hope" Even if you don't listen to it, please be kind to others. Thanks for listening to me 🙏

The jaw is so convincing how they managed to perfectly put the facial hair on it, it just makes it look so real
