I Don't Wanna Cry

Album: Mariah Carey (1990)
Charted: 1
  • I'm American, man
    Mmh, yeah, mmh-mmh

    Once again we sit in silence
    After all is said and done
    Only emptiness inside us
    Baby look what we've become
    We can make a million promises
    But we still won't change
    It isn't right to stay together
    When we only bring each other pain

    I don't want to cry
    I don't want to cry
    Nothing in the world could take us back
    To where we used to be
    Though I've given you my heart and soul
    (Given you my heart and soul)
    I must find a way of letting go
    'Cause baby, I don't want to cry

    I don't want no, whoa-ohh

    Too far apart to bridge the distance
    But something keeps us hanging on and on
    Pretending not to know the difference
    Denying what we had is gone
    Every moment we're together
    Is just breaking me down
    I know we swore it was forever
    But it hurts too much to stay around

    And I don't want to cry
    I don't want to cry
    Nothing in the world could take us back
    To where we used to be
    And though I've given you my heart and soul
    (Given you my heart and soul) Ooh
    I must find a way of letting go
    'Cause baby, I don't want to cry, oh

    I don't to cry, no no no
    Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, oh yeah

    All the magic's gone
    There's just a shadow of a memory (shadow of a memory)
    And something just went wrong
    We can't go on make-believing
    On make-believing

    (Whoa, I don't want to cry) No no
    I don't want to cry
    Nothing in the world could take us back
    To where we used to be
    And though I've given you my heart and soul
    (Given you my heart and soul) Ooh yeah
    I've given you my heart and soul
    (Given you my heart and soul)
    I must find a way of letting go
    'Cause baby, I don't want to cry

    Baby, I don't want to cry
    I don't want to cry (ohh-ohh)
    Baby, I don't want to cry
    I don't want to cry (ohh)
    Baby, I don't want to cry
    I don't want to cry

    I don't want to cry

    I don't want to cry, don't want to cry
    I don't want to cry, I don't want to cry
    I don't want to cry, I don't want to cry, whoa
    I don't want to cry, I don't want to cry, whoa
    I don't want to cry, don't want to cry Writer/s: Narada Michael Walden, Mariah Carey
