You don't have to be a baby to cry
All you need is for love to go wrong
You don't have to be a baby to cry
Or to lie awake the whole night long

When you leave me my golden rainbow disappears
And you leave me a broken heart that's full of tears

These ain't rainbows in my eyes, why should I lie
You don't have to be a baby to cry

When you leave me my golden rainbow disappears
And you leave me a broken heart that's full of tears

These ain't rainbows in my eyes, why should I lie
You don't have to be a baby to cry
You don't have to be a baby to cry
You don't have to be a baby to cry
