Wasting All These Tears - Cassadee Pope


The Experience: I wish I could erase our memory, 'cause you didn't give a damn about me. You betrayed me, hurt me, left me. Now I don't even understand why I'm wasting all these tears on you.

Music Video: Starts on a together scene on a swing. Then Cassadee catches her boyfriend cheating on her. She leaves him and ends up swinging alone in a downpour.

The Meaning of Wasting All These Tears: Cassadee's standing on the corner crying. She's wants to stop crying, confused "Why I'm wasting all these tears on you?" How do we get hurtfull memories off my mind? We can't erase our memories by the bottom of the bottle. That  only erases ourselves. Counter-intuitively, the path beyond pain isn't anger but peace. The less emotion our memories cause us, the less they keep coming to mind. Often that requires the supreme sacrifice - we have to stop making our enemy come to mind... we have to forgive before we can forget. But forgetting will finally leave us free to find love and happiness again.

Ask Yourself: How do I handle being hurt? How do I get that wounded feeling off my mind?


LYRICS:
I try to find you at the bottom of the bottle
Lying down on the bathroom floor
My loneliness was a rattle in the windows
You say you don't want me anymore

And you left me
Standing on the corner crying
Feeling like a fool for trying
I don't even remember why
I’m wasting all these tears on you

I wish I could erase our memory
'Cause you didn't give a damn about me
Oh finally I'm through
Wasting all these tears on you, these tears on you

You ain't worth another sleepless night
And I’ll do everything I got to do get you off my mind
'Cause what you wanted I couldn’t get
What you did, boy I'll never forget

And you left me
Standing on the corner crying
Feeling like a fool for trying
I don't even remember why
I'm wasting all these tears on you

I wish I could erase our memory
'Cause you didn't give a damn about me
Oh finally I'm through
Wasting all these tears on you, these tears on you

I try to find you at the bottom of the bottle
Lying down on the bathroom floor
