Everybody Wants Me To Cry

 

maybe i died just being born.
maybe they laid eyes and said, "oh, lord."
maybe i tried a little bit too hard, jarred and marred.
maybe they hate this song, too, so far.

 

i want to go home,
but not to my home.
i've a dream of home.
i know it's out there.

 

OH,

 

i don't know what i say,
and i don't know what i do,
but i know that soon you will join them, too.
it's true.
everybody wants me to cry.
everybody wants me to cry.

 

maybe my life is the gods' big joke.
or maybe they'd say my name they don't know.
maybe it's this: i'm just plain no good, underfoot.
maybe the crux is all cock and bull.

 

now, it seems, you're someone
who's like me...my someone.
i can't believe, all along,
you were out there.

 

OH,

 

i don't know what i say,
and i don't know what i do,
but i know that soon you will join them, too.
it's true.
everybody wants me to cry.
everybody wants me to cry,
and they're satisfied.
everybody wants me to cry.
