​Don't You Cry

This song is by Richard Hawley and appears on the album Truelove's Gutter (2009).

The future here is shattered
Your voice is thin as rain
Unholy broken shadows
You know you'll never tame
This winter lake is frozen
Cold fantasy turned on its side
The screw just keeps on turning
But it's guilt makes you decide
That you can't cry
Although you've tried
Run and hide
But don't you cry
The clocks have stopped their ticking
Time grips you in its vice
These hands have always claimed you
Marooned here in midnight
Poets have their studies
Babies have their mind
Just visions from a hilltop
Or a train journey late at night
But you can't cry
Although you try
Run and hide
But don't you cry

Faces haunt the mirror
Dark voices close behind
They're nothing to the horrors
Of the loneliness you hide
Your morning views it's headstone
Its' cruelty knows no bounds
A mist enshrouds tomorrow
Today the hammer pounds
But you can't cry
Although you try
Run and hide
But don't you cry

Got no dreams to speak of
Hope's teeth they start to bite
Your heart of molten ashes
Its sparks shower you in spite
You envy all the others
The ones who own their eyes
Serenity is a planet
On which you can't reside
Your lover's ghostly memory
Haunts you all your days
His ship sails bold horizons
You stalk him in its wake
But you can't cry
Although you try
Run and hide
From what's inside
Oh, you can't cry
Although you've tried
Run and hide
But don't you cry

He knows that she's so sad
She knows the clocks won't turn back
He knows that she's so sad
She hopes the clocks turn back
He knows that she's so sad
She knows the clocks won't turn back
