don't let them see you cry

If you feel the same I'll come around
To catch some tv or to paint the town 
And in a while you will feel better
Some people don't watch what they say
N they make a list of all your mistakes
Like they're the only things that matter

Welcome to the world of modern thought
It's just as rounded as it is short
I pay top dollar just to hear you talk
Life is love and war, come and give it a try
There will be casualties on both sides
Don't ever let them see you cry

Don't ever let them see you cry

You know you're wanted you are the first 
No less than the entire universe
There is no equal under heaven
So where's the harm if you're alright
And you still have some appetite
And for a smile you'll be forgiven, child

Hanging about like a chandelier
The light refracted in your crystal tears
I think I know what I like about you
If you need a hand I'll be glad to oblige
A stiff upper lip with a thorn in my side
As if I've never been refused, or denied

Never been refused, that's my line 
This is no time to be blinded by grief

Welcome to the world of modern thought
So damn loud it won't be ignored 
I'm writing checks that I can't afford
There's a dark cloud gathering over your sky
I've a roof on my house if you mean to stay dry
Don't ever let them see you cry

Oh no, don't ever let them see you cry
This is nothing to be wasting your time with

Thanks lyric man. I dunno if this works as a poem, it does with music. After years of not writing then this song I felt like I'd faked losing it so well that Id convinced myself. I was ver happy with this as a song.
