Cowboys Dont Cry

Written by: Laura Ann

I guess I could feel it
The moment that plane left the ground
Things were changing and
There was nothing I could do 

Waiting, impatient like a child
Haunted by old memories
Under that hat, was the face of the man
I always knew him to be 

Seeing him again, after all these years
Frightened me so
I was reminded how much
He had once, meant to me 

But you cant make someone love you
No matter how hard you wish
I knew he would break my heart
So I left him standing there in the night
With a tear in his eye.......
So don’t tell me cowboys don’t cry 

I couldn’t take my eyes Off 
his rough and calloused hands
My mind tried to imagine
All he’d been through 

Life had been rough
it was written in the lines on his face
You could almost see 
His heart there on his sleeve 

I could feel me falling
Like I had so long ago
The girl in me was
Dreaming of kissing him again 

But you can’t make someone love you
No matter how hard you wish
I knew he’d break my heart
So I left him there in the night
With a tear in his eye...
So don’t tell me cowboys don’t cry
 
I wanted to run but my feet wouldn’t move
I just had to turn back
to wipe that tear from his eye 
 then I kissed him goodbye 
So don’t tell me ....cowboys don’t cry
