Emotions
Destiny's Child Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

It's over and done
But the heartache lives on inside
And who's the one you're clinging to
Instead of me tonight?

And where are you now, now that I need you?
Tears on my pillow wherever you go(GO)
Cry me a river that leads to your ocean
You never see me fall apart

In the words of a broken heart
It's just emotion taken me over
Caught up in sorrow, lost in my soul
But if you don't come back

Come home to me, darling
Don't you know there's nobody left in this world
To hold me tight
Don't you know there's nobody left in this world kiss goodnight
Goodnight, goodnight,goodnight

I'm there at your side,
I'm part of all the things you are
But you've got a part of someone else
You've gotta go find your shining star

And where are you now, now that I need you?
Tears on my pillow wherever you are
Cry me a river that leads to your ocean
You never see me fall apart

In the words of a broken heart
It's just emotion taken me over
Caught up in sorrow, lost in my soul
But if you don't come back
Come home to me, darling

Don't you know there's nobody left in this world
To hold me tight
Nobody left in this world to kiss goodnight
Goodnight, goodnight

And where are you now, now that I need you?
Tears on my pillow wherever you go
I'll cry me a river that leads to your ocean
You never see me fall apart

In the words of a broken heart
It's just emotion taken me over
Caught up in sorrow, lost in my soul
But if you don't come back

Come home to me, darling
Nobody left in this world
To hold me tight
Nobody left in this world to kiss goodnight





Nobody to kiss me
Goodnight, goodnight

Overall, the song is a lament for a lost love and a testament to the power of emotions.


Line by Line Meaning

It's over and done
The relationship is ended and will not revive


But the heartache lives on inside
The pain of the split continues, even in the present


And who's the one you're clinging to
You have moved on to a new person


Instead of me tonight?
You have chosen someone else over me for tonight


And where are you now, now that I need you?
I feel alone and emotional, and you are not here to support me


Tears on my pillow wherever you go(GO)
I cry for you regardless of where you are or what you're doing


Cry me a river that leads to your ocean
My tears may seem insignificant, but they lead to a vast ocean of emotions


You never see me fall apart
I try my best to hold it together around you


In the words of a broken heart
These are the words and feelings of someone who has been hurt


It's just emotion taken me over
I am overwhelmed by my feelings


Caught up in sorrow, lost in my soul
I am deeply saddened and feeling lost


But if you don't come back
If you do not return to me


Come home to me, darling
Please return to me, my love


Don't you know there's nobody left in this world
There is no one else left for me to turn to


To hold me tight
To comfort and support me


Nobody left in this world to kiss goodnight
No one is left to share intimate moments with me


I'm there at your side,
I am still here for you


I'm part of all the things you are
I am part of your life and everything about you


But you've got a part of someone else
You have also moved on to someone else


You've gotta go find your shining star
You need to find your own happiness and love


Nobody to kiss me
No one is there to give me physical affection


Goodnight, goodnight
The day is done, it's time to rest

Letra, lyrics
It's over and done
But the heartache lives on inside
And who is the one you're clinging to
Instead of me tonight?

And where are you now
Now that I need you?
Tears on my pillow
Wherever you go, go
I'll cry me a river
That leads to your ocean
You'll never see me fall apart

In the words of a broken heart
It's just emotions taking me over
Caught up in sorrow, lost in the song
But if you don't come back
Come home to me, darling
Don't you know there's nobody left in this world to hold me tight
And don't you know there's nobody left in this world kiss goodnight
Kiss goodnight
Goodnight
Goodnight

I'm there at your side
A part of all the things you are
But you got a part of someone else
You gotta go find your shining star

And where are you now
Now that I need you?
Tears on my pillow
Wherever you go
I'll cry me a river
That leads to your ocean
You'll never see me fall apart

In the words of a broken heart
It's just emotions taking me over (taking me over)
Caught up in sorrow, lost in the song (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
But if you don't come back
Come home to me, darling
Don't you know there's nobody left in this world to hold me tight
Nobody left in this world to hold me tight
Nobody left in this world kiss goodnight
Nobody left in this world

And where are you now
Now that I need you?
Tears on my pillow
Wherever you, you go
I'll cry me a river
That leads to your ocean
You'll never see me fall apart

In the words of a broken heart
It's just emotions taking me over
I'm caught up in sorrow, lost in the song (don't you know I'm lost without you, baby)
But if you don't come back
Come home to me, darling
Nobody left in this world to hold me tight (yeah, nobody, nobody to hold me)
Nobody left in this world kiss goodnight (nobody to kiss me, yeah)
Goodnight
Goodnight
