Don’t Start Crying Now

I cry at the end of movies
I cry at the end of books
I cry when total strangers
Give me dirty looks

I cry at births and weddings
I'd stop but I don't know how
And I'll cry if you start crying
So don't start crying now

You're putting on your brave face
But that is just a front
I know you've had a recent
Difficult few months

I try to be supportive
And if you will allow
But I'll cry if you start crying
So don't start crying now

Oh no, don't let the tears flow
It only takes one single tear and off I go
Oh my, don't let me cry
If you do there will not be one dry eye

I cry when I am happy
I cry when I am sad
I cry when I open greeting cards
And when I'm really mad

I cry when I'm frustrated
With the sweat upon my brow
And I'll cry if you start crying
So don't start crying now

Don't start crying now
Don't start crying now
Don't start crying now
