about

"Don't Waste That Tear" - written after a prompt in a songwriter course asking us to write a song for our favorite movie's soundtrack. So this is a song for the story of Russell and Penny Lane in "Almost Famous".

lyrics

I've lived the wasted life
And I've been the bad guy
But I sure know how to have a damn good time

You came from the real world
To find the glory of rock n roll
Instead you found me and put on a blind fold

We've been making it some time
Maybe it's love, as much as it can be for a time

So darlin don't waste that tear on me
Darlin, don't waste that tear on me

You and me we play our little games
Make the blood boil in my veins
You can get burned playing with flames

People know you and they know about her
But I don't know what she may have already heard
You see, I haven't been straight forward.

Well I've been married now for some time
It ain't love, but it'll do just fine

So darlin don't waste that tear on me
Darlin, don't waste that tear on me

It ain't her I'll ever leave, she's the only one that stays despite me.

So darlin don't waste that tear on me
Darlin, don't waste that tear on me
