Cry (If You Want To) (Holly Cole)

Cry if you want 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 can weep you can sleep you can loosen your grip You can frown you can drown and go down with the ship You cry if you want to don't ever apologize venting your pain Its 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 The windows are closed 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 You can stare at the ceiling and tear at your hair Swallow your feelings and stagger and swear You could show things and throw things and I wouldn't care You can cry if you want to I won't make fun of you I won't tell any one I won't analyze what you do or 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 ugly and terribly sad I can't feel what you feel but I no it feel bad I no that its 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 and cheer you up Ill just be here if you want me; to be Near you
