Lyrics
I would say I’m sorry
If I thought that it would change your mind
But I know that this time
I have said too much, been too unkind

I try to laugh about it, cover it all up with lies
I try and laugh about it, hiding the tears in my eyes

Because boys don’t cry, boys don’t cry

I would break down at your feet and beg forgiveness, plead with you
But I know that it’s too late and now there’s nothing I can do

I try to laugh about it, cover it all up with lies
I try and laugh about it, hiding the tears in my eyes

Because boys don’t cry, boys don’t cry

I would tell you that I loved you
If I thought that you would stay
But I know that it’s no use
That you’ve already gone away

Misjudged your limit, pushed you too far
Took you for granted, I thought that you needed me more

Now I would do most anything to get you back by my side
But I just keep on laughing, hiding the tears in my eyes

Because boys don’t cry, boys don’t cry, boys don’t cry
