Holly Cole Trio - Cry (If You Want To) lyrics

Cry if you want to
I won't tell you not too
I won't try to cheer you up
I'll just be here if you want me

It's no use in keeping a stiff upper lip
You could weep, you could sleep, you could loosen your grip
You could frown, you could drown and go down with the ship.
You can cry if you want to.

Don't ever apologize venting your pain.
It's something to me you don't need to explain.
I don't need to know why
I don't think it's insane
You can cry if you want to.

Well, the windows are closed
and the neighbors aren't home
If it's better with me than to do it alone
I'll draw all the curtains and unplug the phone.
You can cry if you want to.

You can stare at the ceiling
and tear at your hair
Swallow your feelings and stagger and swear
Show things and throw things and I wouldn't care.
You can cry if you want to.

Well, I won't make fun of you
I won't tell anyone
I won't tell lies
but you do what you should've done
I won't advise you to go and have fun.
You can cry if you want to.

Well, it's empty and it's ugly and it's terribly sad
I can't feel what you feel,
but I know it feels bad.
I know it is real and it makes you so mad,
You could cry.

Cry if you want to
I won't tell you not to
I won't try to cheer you up
I'll just be here if you want me to be near you.
