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.

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 want to.

well, i won’t make fun of you, i won’t tell anyone
i won’t analyze what you do, what you should have 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 when it’s 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…
