If All I Do Is Cry

Don’t you be afraid of my gun
or you’ll never hear me
Don’t you be afraid of my gun
or you won’t get near me
Over and over again
I tried hard to make you happy

Over and over again, I tried
now I’m just trigger happy
Don’t you be afraid of my gun
I am not a killer
Don’t you be afraid
because if you run
it becomes a thriller
The soldiers of fortune have come
and they come with the sisters of mercy
slicing and dicing their way
into each day
‘cause that’s how you hurt me
and then your lawyers tried to work me

If all I do is cry
I cry a fountain
If all I do is cry
I cry a sea
If all I do is cry
I cry a river
If all I do is cry

Don’t you be afraid of my voice
if I scream a little
Don’t you be afraid of my choice
though it’s still a riddle
the bullets and bandits have come
and they come with their ulcers bleeding
I came to you when I was young
now I come like a shark that’s feeding
and with a tale/tail so long it bears repeating

If all I do is cry
I cry a fountain
If all I do is cry
I cry a sea
If all I do is cry
I cry a river
If all I do is cry

Over and over again
I tried hard to make you happy
Over and over again,
we tried to reach you
so that’s why they sent me
you never know the price of envy

If all I do is cry
I cry a fountain
If all I do is cry
I cry a sea
If all I do is cry
I cry a river
If all I do is cry
