You Are the One to Make Me Cry
by Crowded House



Who face the tide and take their chances
Will fasten the lights to broken branches
Adrift on the ocean in wild winter storms
I have to imagine things to keep myself warm

The night closing in but not to worry
Told everyone I know that I was sorry
And I heard them all singing for comfort and peace
And in my confusion here, I still believe

You were the one to make me cry
You were the one to take me home
Of all the people in my life
My thoughts keep returning to you
But consciousness is fading fast

Surrounded by sights that go on living
Make circles in time, the spiderweb spinning
But I have no illusions of where I am now
I'll let this wave take me and draw me down

You were the one to make me cry
You were the one to take me home
Of all the stories in my life
Only good things return to you

If I could only say the word
If you could hear me cry for help
But I lift my head up to the sky
But the planes that were circling
Now have gone
