Lyrics

IF YOU EVER SEE ME CRY


Some people keep a lock on their emotions
So you never see inside
Some people let their tears flow like an ocean
It can drown you in the tide
I've never worn my heart out on my sleeve
Oh please don't ask me why
Just know you've seen the deepest part of me,
If you ever see me cry

It's not that I believe I'm any different
No, everyone's the same
And it's not that I'm unfeeling or indifferent
Everyone knows pain
We show each other glimpses of ourselves
through the window of the eyes
And you'll see right down to the bottom of the well...
If you ever see me cry

Chorus:
If you ever see me cry
Well that's the last frontier
Where a thousand coats of armour
Finally disappear
Where the skin is still most tender
Where the deepest feelings lie
All power will be yours to make or break me
If you ever see me cry

Now it won't be hard to see how much I love you
By the things I do and say
And you'll know you've made me angry,
Though so far you've never made me feel that way
And you don't ever have to tell me that you love me
Just don't tell me a lie
And darling please don't take advantage of me
If you ever see me cry

Chorus

All power will be yours to make or break me
If you ever see me cry
