Lyrics

[Intro: The Weeknd & Ariana Grande]
Ooh (Ooh)
Na na, yeah

[Verse 1: The Weeknd]
I saw you dancing in a crowded room
You look so happy when I'm not with you
But then you saw me, caught you by surprise
A single teardrop falling from your eye

[Refrain: The Weeknd]
I don't know why I run away (Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
I'll make you cry when I run away (Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)

[Pre-Chorus: The Weeknd]
Take me back 'cause I wanna stay
Save your tears for another

[Chorus: The Weeknd]
Save your tears for another day (Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
Save your tears for another day

[Verse 2: Ariana Grande]
(Mmm)
Met you once under a Pisces moon
I kept my distance 'cause I know that you
Don't like when I'm with nobody else
I couldn't help it, I put you through hell

[Refrain: Ariana Grande]
I don't know why I run away, oh, boy
Said I make you cry when I run away

[Pre-Chorus: Ariana Grande]
Boy, take me back 'cause I wanna stay
Save your tears for another
I realize that I'm much too late
And you deserve someone better

[Chorus: The Weeknd & Ariana Grande]
Save your tears for another day (Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
Save your tears for another day (Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)

[Refrain]
(Bum, bum, bum, bum, bum) I don't know why I run away (Ooh)
(Bum, bum, bum, bum, bum) I make you cry when I run away

[Chorus]
(Save) Save your tears for another day (Oh, yeah) (Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
I said save (save) your (your) tears for another day, oh (Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)

[Outro]
Save your tears for another day (Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
Save your tears for another day (Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
Save your tears for another day
