#69 Boys Don’t Cry

#69 Boys Don’t Cry – The Cure

As anyone over the age of 12 well knows, when you’ve lost the girl it’s best not to even try to get her back as, song lyrics or no, it’ll end in tears. Basically, a stiff upper lip update, which we all need from time to time.
Although this song is well-known, surprisingly it didn’t do that well chart-wise: it had to be released twice (79 and 86) to get anywhere and even then it stalled just outside the top twenty.

 

 

 

Lyrics

I would say I’m sorry,
If I thought that it would change your mind.
But I know that this time,
I have said too much,
Been too unkind…

I tried to laugh about it,
Cover it all up with lies.
I tried to 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 tried to laugh about it,
Cover it all up with lies.
I tried to laugh about it,
Hiding the tears in my eyes.
Cause boys don’t cry.
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 limit,
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…

    Excellent way of telling, and good piece of writing to obtain information
    regarding my presentation topic, which i am going to convey in institution of higher education.
