  • I don't wanna cry for you,
    There's nothing left to lose,
    If it can make me feel better,
    Than I'm gonna cry, cry for you,
    I don't wanna cry for you,
    There's nothing left to do,
    If it can make me feel better,
    Than I'm gonna cry, cry for you,

    I know men aren't supposed to act this way
    But things, they got to real, I couldn't stay
    Now, I know one day we will both feel good
    If I could be with you, you know I would

    Don't wanna cry for you
    But there's nothing left to do
    If it can make me feel better
    Than I'm gonna cry, cry for you
    I don't wanna cry for you
    There's nothing left to lose
    If it can make me feel better
    Than I'm gonna cry, cry for you

    Turn the lights down low and close the door
    I'm tryin' to feel the way, I felt before
    I'll cry in the middle of the day
    It better make me feel a better way
    If it could take my pain away
    Yeah oh

    Take my pain away
    I don't wanna cry for you
    But there is nothing left to lose
    You got to let the boy have his way
    Cause it gets him to drink it away
    I don't wanna cry for you
    But there's nothing left to do
    If it can make me feel better
    Than I'm gonna cry, cry for you
    If it can make me feel better
    Than I'm gonna cry, cry for you

    Oh (make me feel better)
    Cry for you
    Oh (make me feel better)
    Cry for you
    I'm gonna cry, cry for you
    I'm gonna cry, cry for you Writer/s: Peter J. Yorn
