(Don't cry, don't cry, don't cry)
I don't want to cry
But I can't keep tears from my eyes
And when I meet friends,
I hope they don't realize
That I'm crying because I'm alone
I don't want to cry
But I can't keep tears from my eyes

My days and my night are all spend thinking of you
Of places we went and things we used to do
My tears I've tried to hide
But darling how I'm hurting inside
I don't want to cry
But I can't keep tears from my eyes

Why did you have to leave me
Why did you have to go
You know I can't love another
Darling I need you so
Carry on back and wipe away all my tears
I'm in the same place right where you left me dear
I thought that I was so strong
But O darling, it looks like I'm wrong
I don't want to cry
But I can't keep tears from my eyes
