While I Cry - Lyrics by Monkees


Lyrics
by Michael Nesmith
They told me what you'd do
If I ever stayed with you,
They told me that you'd laugh while I cried,
They told me what you'd say,
That you'd turn and walk away
And find another place to play while I cried.
Now I think back on those times
I didn't read between the lines,
How all the things that you said
Never seemed to match the things you did.SOLO
Thoughts keep turning round in my mind,
Now I see reason and rhyme,
Time spent with you has brought me something
And I've lost nothing if you are that kind, ahhhhh...
They told me what you'd do
If I ever stayed with you,
And sure enough, it all came true.
