boys don’t cry lyrics – the cure

“boys don’t cry”

i would say i’m sorry
if i thought that it would change your mind
but i know that this time
i’ve said too much
been too unkind

i try to laugh about it
cover it all up with lies
i try and
laugh about it
hiding the tears in my eyes
’cause boys don’t cry
boys don’t cry

i would break down at your feet
and beg forgiveness
plead with you
but i know that
it’s too late
and now there’s nothing i can do

so i try to laugh about it
cover it all up with lies
i try to
laugh about it
hiding the tears in my eyes
’cause boys don’t cry

i would tell you
that i loved you
if i thought that you would stay
but i know that it’s no use
that you’ve already
gone away

misjudged your limits
pushed you too far
took you for granted
i thought that you needed me more

now i would do most anything
to get you back by my side
but i just
keep on laughing
hiding the tears in my eyes
’cause boys don’t cry
boys don’t cry
boys don’t cry
