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)

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

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

Abstain from shedding tears for me for now

Hold your tears off until another day

God gave His Son so we can live through Him and have everlasting life. God loves you! Believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ and be saved!
This is the Gospel of your salvation

1 Corinthians 15: 1-4  
Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;

2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.

3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;

4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

You can give your life to God right now. Repent for your sins, trust Jesus, and God will give you eternal life. Have faith and say this prayer.
"Jesus Lord I know you shed your blood and died for my sins. I know you were buried, and you rose again on the third day. Please forgive me for my sins. I give my life to you Lord. Thank you Jesus for saving me. Amen."

I 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 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
