Graham Riley New Single ‘Tears Don’t Fall’ is a story about personal struggle
We all have those moments in life when our personal journey comes to a crossroad. Sometimes we find ourselves lost in a maze of confusion, doubt, and fear. That is the moment when we need to be strong and keep moving forward. Just like Graham Riley’s latest single, ‘Tears Don’t Fall,’ is a story about overcoming personal struggles and deciding on the right path forward.
The song’s soothing melody and heartfelt lyrics inspire listeners to persevere through tough times. Graham’s powerful vocals leave a lasting impression on the mind and heart.
The art work on this single is brilliant. It’s a beautiful painting of abstract human shapes with a black figure in the center of two bright yellow forms that seem to signify light. ‘Tears Don’t Fall’ is a must-listen for anyone navigating the ups and downs of life’s journey..

Tears Don’t Fall’ was written in January of 2021. After breaking up with my girlfriend & having a falling out with my best friend from high school; I felt devoid of direction. TDF was born out of that internal strife. With the people once tethering me to my identity now gone, I felt as if (for the first time in my life) I had to decide who I wanted to be. The opening lyrics of the song are meant to reflect that sentiment: “I’m at a crossroads. To my left all is dark. To my right leads my heart.”
