Tears Dry on Their Own Lyrics

All I can ever be to you,
Is a darkness that we knew,
And this regret I had to get accustomed to,
Once it was so right,
When we were at our high,
Waiting for you in the hotel at night,
I knew I hadn't met my match,
But every moment...

    No!!! She was in love with someone else's man that she was sneaking around with which is why she saysI don't know why I got so attached. She did not meant to but at the end of the day she felt as if she couldn't walk away. When he left her she felt as though the sun went down so every day was over and she has no hope. She does not talk about drying her own tears she says her tears dry on their own which for me paints an image of mascara running down her face and having dried streaks. The next trach is also wake up alone where she is laying in bed imagining that he is there with her and she wakes up to her lonely reality

    This is basically a "fuck you" song. she's saying that she doesn't need a guy around to comfort her, especially not one who hurt her in the first place.

    R.I.P. Amy Winehouse!
