Tears Dry on Their Own  Amy Winehouse

...TEARS DRY ON THEIR OWN... by Amy Winehouse
 
 ----------------------------.................

*from 'Back To Black (2006)*
*CAPO 2nd FRET*
(Original Key: A)
*NB: I'm unsure of the A chord used
in the Bridge, but it sounds close*
Verse 1:
[D6] All I can ever be to you,
Is a [G#m7b5]darkness that we knew,
And [Gmaj7]this regret,
I [F#m7]got ac-[Em9]customed [D/F#]to.[G] [E/G#]
[D6] Once it was so right,
When [G#m7b5]we were at our high,
[Gmaj7] Waiting for you,
[F#m7] In the ho-[Em9]tel at night.[D/F#] [G] [E/G#]
Verse 2:
I knew I [D6]hadn't met my match,
But every [G#m7b5]moment we could snatch.
I [Gmaj7]don't know why,
[F#m7] I got [Em9]so attached.[D/F#] [G] [E/G#]
It's my re[D6]sponsibility,
And you don't [G#m7b5]owe nothing to me,
But to [Gmaj7]walk away;
I [F#m7]have no ca-[Em9]pacity.[F#m7]
Chorus 1:
[Gmaj7] He walks away,[F#m7]
The sun [Bm7]goes down,
[Gmaj7] He takes the day, but [F#m7]I'm grown.[Bm7]
And [Gmaj7]in this grey,
In this [F#m7]blue shade,[Bm7]
My [E7]tears dry on [F#m7]their [G]own.
Verse 3:
[D6] I don't understand,
Why [G#m7b5]do I stress a man,
When [Gmaj7]there?s so many,
[F#m7] Better [Em9]things at hand.[D/F#] [G] [E/G#]
We could a [D6]never had it all,
We [G#m7b5]had to hit a wall,
So [Gmaj7]this is,
In-[F#m7]evita-[Em9]ble withdrawal.[D/F#] [G] [E/G#]
Verse 4:
Even if [D6]I stop wanting you,
A Per-[G#m7b5]spective pushes through,
I'll [Gmaj7]be some next [F#m7]man's,
Other [Em9]woman soon.[D/F#] [G] [E/G#]
I can't [D6]play myself again,
I should just [G#m7b5]be my own best friend,
Not [Gmaj7]fuck myself [F#m7]in the head,
With [Em9]stupid men.[F#m7]
Chorus 2:
[Gmaj7] He walks away,[F#m7]
The sun [Bm7]goes down,
[Gmaj7] He takes the day, but [F#m7]I'm grown.[Bm7]
And [Gmaj7]in this grey,
In this [F#m7]blue shade,[Bm7]
My [E7]tears dry on [F#m7]their [G]own.
Bridge 1:
So [A]we are history,
Your shadow covers me,
The sky above, a blaze...
Chorus 3:
[Gmaj7] He walks away,[F#m7]
The sun [Bm7]goes down,
[Gmaj7] He takes the day, but [F#m7]I'm grown.[Bm7]
[Gmaj7] He takes the day,
But [F#m7]I'm grown.[Bm7]
And in [A]your wake,
In this blue shade,
My tears dry on their own.
Verse 5:
I [D6]wish I could say no regrets,
And no [G#m7b5]emotional debts,
'Cos [Gmaj7]as we kiss good-[F#m7]bye,
The [Em9]sun sets.[D/F#] [G] [E/G#]
So [D6]we are history,
The [G#m7b5]shadow covers me,
The [Gmaj7]sky above a [F#m7]blaze,
That only [Em9]lovers see.[F#m7]
Chorus 3:
[Gmaj7] He walks away,[F#m7]
The sun [Bm7]goes down,
[Gmaj7] He takes the day, but [F#m7]I'm grown.[Bm7]
And [Gmaj7]in this grey,
In this [F#m7]blue shade,[Bm7]
My [E7]tears dry,
On [F#m7]their [G]own.
Chorus 4:
[Gmaj7] He walks away,[F#m7]
The sun [Bm7]goes down,
[Gmaj7] He takes the day, but [F#m7]I'm grown.[Bm7]
And [Gmaj7]in this grey,
In this [F#m7]deep shade,[Bm7]
My [E7]tears dry on [F#m7]their [G]own.
Chorus 5:
[Gmaj7] He walks away,[F#m7]
The sun [Bm7]goes down,
[Gmaj7] He takes the day, but [F#m7]I'm grown.[Bm7]
And in [Gmaj7]your wake
My [F#m7]deep shade,[Bm7]
My [Gmaj7]tears dry...[F#m7] [Bm7]
