  • If there's a tear on my face
    It makes me shiver to the bone
    It shakes me, babe
    It's just a heartache that got caught in my eye
    And you know I never cry, I never cry

    Sometimes I drink more than I need
    Until the TV's dead and gone
    I may be lonely
    But I'm never alone
    And the night may pass me by
    But I never cry

    Take away, take away my eyes
    Sometimes I'd rather be blind
    Break a heart, break a heart of stone
    Open it up but don't you leave it alone

    'Cause that's all I got to give you
    Believe me, babe, it ain't been used
    My heart's a virgin, it ain't never been tried
    And you know I'll never cry
    And you know I'll never cry
    Well, you know, you know, you know, you know I never cry
    I never cry

    Break a heart, break a heart of stone
    Open it up but don't you leave it alone
    'Cause that's all I got to give you
    Believe me, babe, it ain't been used
    My heart's a virgin, it ain't never been tried
    And you know I never cry
    I never cry

  • Strats from Southwestern IndianaThe hard rockers have always given us some of the best soft simple ballads from the heart & this one is a prime example.
  • Dane from Green Cove Springs Fla., FlA song I've always loved.I love the words.To me,I always thought it was about being strong even tho everything's messed up.
  • Stu from Philly, PaAlice Cooper makes some great ballads, and this is one of his best.
  • Andrew from Mackinaw, Ilwhat this song means to me is it's about a man's pride opposing the softer side and how he is willing to suck it all in instead of trying to keep the one he loves.
  • Pat from Reading, Mapoison re-did this song for their 2007 album Poison'd
