about

Tú Llorarás is an anti love song, a warning to an admirer that they’re going to get their heart broken. Inspired by bachata, a Dominican dance genre in which the dominant voice is that of a heartbroken man, this track turns tradition on it's head by telling the woman's story. The mash up with a bit of ska from Holly's hometown London makes for irresistibly sassy tropical tune to snake your hips to.

lyrics

Tú Llorarás

Tú llorarás por mi
Nunca me digas que no te avisé
Tú llorarás por mi
I put it clearer than the light of the day

I hear the words though you don’t say nothing I
I can read them in your face
I fear the worst I get blurry honey
I been getting high off your embrace

Echate pa ca escucha bien lo que te voy a decirte yo te diré una solita vez y es que
Not all that glitters is gold and I know you’ve been told by your daddy that
The devil wears a dress

Tú llorarás por mi
Nunca me digas que no te avisé
Tú llorarás por mi
I put it clearer than the light of the day

Tú llorarás por mi
Nunca me digas que no te avisé
Tú llorarás por mi
I put it clearer than the light of the day

I tell you no but I keep on coming through
There ain’t no question that you ought to
Turn and run but summer skies get hazy blue
They say there’s something in the water

¿Dónde está el epicentro de el terremoto que tienes en tu corazón?
You best help yourself quick or you’ll stick and you’ll cry even longer
the day I get gone

Oh, it gets cold
Closed curtains and red wine
Oh, I’m not yours to hold
You’re wasting your time, don’t
Don’t it get old?
What are you deaf and blind?
You know, you’ve been told
But there’s no reason or rhyme with you

Tú llorarás por mi
Nunca me digas que no te avisé
Tú llorarás por mi
I put it clearer than the light of the day

Tú llorarás por mi
Nunca me digas que no te avisé
Tú llorarás por mi
I put it clearer than the light of the day

Oh, it gets cold
Closed curtains and red wine
Oh, I’m not yours to hold
You’re wasting your time, don’t
Don’t it get old?
What are you deaf and blind?
You know, you’ve been told
But there’s no reason or rhyme with you
