​Lover, You Don't Have To Cry

This song is by Dougie MacLean and appears on the album On A Wing And A Prayer (1981) and on the album Early (2003).

I've got to tell you and this seems the easy way
To say the things I'll find so hard to say when I've got to go away
And I've got this feeling and it's something really good
And I need to show that I want to let it grow and I want you to know

Lover, you don't have to cry
Time is just a passing cloud
And it moves across the sky
And when I want to think of you
I don't need no reasons why
Lover, you don't have to cry

I was so tired that I thought that I might fall
I just can't say how I came to be this way how I came to be this way
You gave me something that I did not know was there
You made me smile when I was edging on despair and I could not even care

Lover, you don't have to cry
Time is just a passing cloud
And it moves across the sky
And when I want to think of you
I don't need no reasons why
Lover, you don't have to cry

And in this moment when I'm so far away
To let her show I'd like to turn around and go I just can't say no
I've got to tell you and this seems the easy way
To say the things I'll find so hard to say but I've got to go away

Lover, you don't have to cry
Time is just a passing cloud
And it moves across the sky
And when I want to think of you
I don't need no reasons why
Lover, you don't have to cry
