​I Don't Want To Cry

This song is by Sam Cooke.

Don't cry, don't cry, don't cry

I don't want to cry but I can't keep tears from my eyes
(Don't cry, don't cry)
Ooh, and when I meet friends, I hope they don't realize
That I'm crying because you are gone
I'm crying because I'm alone, oh
I don't want to cry but I can't keep tears from my eyes, oh

My days and my nights are all spent thinking of you
You, you, you, you, thinkin' of you
Of places we went and things that we used to do
My tears I've tried to hide
But oh, darling, how am I hurting inside, oh
I don't want to cry but I can't keep tears from my eyes

Why did you have to leave me, why did you have to go?
You know I can't love another, darling I need you so, oh
Carry on back and wipe away all my, my, my, my, my
Wipe away my tears

I'm in the same place right where you left me dear
I thought that I was so strong
But oh, darling, it looks like I was wrong, wrong
I don't want to cry but I can't keep tears from my eyes

Please don't cry
