Don’t act so surprised by these tears in my eyes
You do this to me everyday
You let me have it don’t let up until it happens
Find just the worst words to say

Why make me cry
Why make me cry
Why make me cry

Congratulations you broke my heart
Didn’t know you could do it again
Too much of a good thing ain’t what let us down
But I’m not gonna let the whole world see my cry

Why make me cry
Why make me cry
Why make me cry

Why make cry-----y

You gotta hold on - hold on to yourself
Can’t just leave it up to me
So afraid, of what? Makin’ it so rough
The way you take it out on me

Fine make me cry
Last time was the try
Fine make me cry

What’s another row? Well it’s one too many.
I’ve got reasons singin’ Mary Jane
Gonna fix it somehow, no don’t pretend now
Not gonna wait til ya know that it’s just too late

I spoke just a moment to soon
Searched by the light of the moon
It won’t make you feel better so why make me cry?
