Music Monday – Tears Always Win

Anyone who meets me knows I love music. I love all types… ummm okay I love most types of music. For me its about the lyrics and what it is the artist is talking about or what message they are trying to convey. I love to dissect a song and its lyrics completely. Every Monday I want to post a song that either inspires me, makes me think about the world we live in, motivates me to always be who I am or may be something I was feeling at some point. It will be a great mix of different types of music and hope it will also do the same for you. I love to think that music captures what so many of us may be feeling or want to say, but don’t know how.

SONG – Tears Always Win

ARTIST – Alicia Keys

LYRICS -

Check it out
It feels kinda crazy

These covers
May keep me warm at night
But they can’t take your place
Cause they never gonna hold me tight

And these pillows
May let me rest my head
But they can’t say good night
And tuck me in before I go to bed

Say now baby girl you’re better off
That’s what I’m telling myself (over and over)
But I’m lying to myself
Cause I know I don’t want nobody else

[Chorus:]
These lips are missing you
Cause these lips ain’t kissing you
These eyes put up a fight
But once again these tears always win
These arms are wanting you
Cause these arms ain’t holding you
These eyes put up a fight
But once again these tears always win

These candles
Light up my room at night
But they can’t light the room they way you did
When you walked inside, oh baby

If these walls could sing
About everything they’ve witnessed
Oh it’d be a sad sad song
And it’ll probably sound something like this

Say now baby girl you’re better off
That’s what I’m telling myself (over and over)
But I’m lying to myself
Cause I know I don’t want nobody else

[Chorus:]
These lips are missing you
Cause these lips ain’t kissing you
These eyes put up a fight
But once again these tears always win
These arms are wanting you
Cause these arms ain’t holding you
These eyes put up a fight
But once again these tears always win

Tell me when the hell this loneliness is gonna be over
When everything in this room reminds me of you
Everytime I think, I’m getting closer
Cause tears drown me out, once again I lose

These lips are missing you
These lips ain’t kissing you
I put up a fight
But once again these tears always win
These arms are wanting you
These arms ain’t holding you
These eyes put up a fight
But once again these tears always win

Crying like oh oh…
These eyes put up a fight
But once again these tears always win
Crying like oh oh…
These eyes put up a fight
But once again these tears always win
These eyes put up a fight
But once again these tears always win

LISTEN TO IT HERE – Alicia Keys – Tears Always Win

WHY I PICKED IT – Read the lyrics… listen to the song, this is how I have been feeling for a while. I’m still so in love with him it’s crazy & it hurts. This song just says everything I have been feeling since I left Egypt and returned home. I don’t want petty I am just sharing this because I know it’s been a while since I shared a song for Music Monday and think this one is a great one. I love the soulfulness Alicia Keys puts into the lyrics. Hope you enjoy the song and if you can relate to it like I can I apologize in advance.

  1. I admire you Jaime. Really. I can relate to your feelings and i think you must be quite strong, despise your tears, to endure such pain every day. All i can do is just virtually hug you and hope that you will feel a bit better with time.
