"Out Of Tears" as written by and Mick Jagger Keith Richards....
I can't feel
Feel a thing
I can't shout
I can't scream
Breathe it out
Breathe it in
All this love
From within

I won't cry when you say goodbye
I'm out of tears
I won't die when you wave goodbye
I'm out of tears
Out of tears

I won't drink
I won't eat
I can't hear
I won't speak
Let it out
Let it in
All this pain
From within
And I just can't pour my heart out
To another living thing
I'm a whisper
I'm a shadow
But I'm standing up to sing

I won't cry when you say goodbye
I'm out of tears
I won't die when you wave goodbye
I'm out of tears, yes I am
I won't cry, I swear my eyes are dry
I'm out of tears
I won't cry, I'm going to tell you why
I'm out of tears
Out of tears
Out of tears

Let it out
From within
Some you lose
Some you win
I can drift
I can dream
Til I float
Off your screen
And I just can't pour my heart out
To another living thing
I'm a whisper
I'm a shadow
But I'm standing up to sing

I won't cry when you say goodbye
I'm out of tears
I won't die when you wave goodbye
I'm out of tears
Out of tears
I won't cry, I swear my eyes are dry
I'm out of tears
Out of tears
I won't cry, I'm going to tell you why
I'm out of tears
Out of tears
Out of tears

    General Commentif i were to list the stones tracks i know without having much time to think, this would be up there. i wouldnt say their 'hits' were overrated but songs like this dont get the appreciation they deserve

    General CommentThis has to be my favourite Rolling Stones song, it's so beautiful. It's so melodic, really the meaning is completely straightforward, but still, such a beautiful and sad song.

    General CommentI like how he says he's a whisper and a shadow but he still gets up to sing. It's like he feels hollow inside, but he's still doing his business as though he's just going through the motions.
