Morgan, Lorrie - If I Cry Lyrics



They're only tears reach up and touch one
They come from the way you touch me
Tears rise like a tide to the moon
When the heart of a woman is open to you.

[Chorus:]
If I cry it only means I want you closer
Don't be afraid follow me wherever I go
Stay with me even if it feels like I'm breaking
'Cause I can only give you everything if I cry.

I need your hand touch me in the darkness
Tenderness alone can understand
That love knows more than I can say
Like a river of surrender, it washed us away.

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
These tears are water from a flame
Lay down in the fire and let it rain.

[Chorus]

  8. StaceyDMify

    originally a pop hit by Johnnie Ray, then a #1 country hit by Lynn Anderson in '72, then a #1 hit by Crystal Gayle in the '80s.  In terms of the women who've covered it, it's hard to beat (or come close to) the Lynn Anderson hit version.

    check out the original by the so underated Johnnie Ray ...
