​The Same Old Tears on a New Background

This song is by Rumer and appears on the album Boys Don't Cry (2012).

It's the same old tears on a new background,
Seeing you, a fading photograph
It hurts too much to laugh these days.
But I'm alright, yes, I'm alright, I'm alright.
It's the same old song with a new melody,
But this old candle's lingering flame is almost gone,
To see you again is all that keeps me hangin' on.
But I'm alright, yes, I'm alright, I'm alright.
Remembering, remembering that familiar heartache,
No one but you can make my dreams come true
It's the same old me crying the same old tears
And I walk away just like I always do
Still in love with you.
But I'm alright, yes, I'm alright, I'm alright.
I'm alright

Yes I'm alright, I'm alright.
