Lyrics

A Song to Make You Cry

Written By: Aron Dunlap


A Song to Make You Cry

Not the forgotten calls
Nor the withered flowers
Not the crumpled letters
Nor the squandered hours

Not the mocking gifts
Or the hollow kisses
Not the cunning plots
Nor the way you tried to clean it up

Not the pointed insults or the barbed compliments
They were merely condiments
No, the hardest part of all is that you’re just doing fine
And I don’t have a song to make you cry

Not the gifts that you exchanged
Nor those you threw away
Not the several friends
The ones you stole from me

‘Cause I can get some more
And I can buy some things
I think I’ll throw a masquerade and ball
And give all those things away

Not the tired jokes, nor the faded sympathies,
In fact they were like friends to me
No, the hardest part of all is that you’re just doing fine
And I don’t have a song to make you cry

Not the nights I’ve lost
Nor the days we slept through
Not the broken pots
Or the plants I left you

Not the quiet Sundays or the rainy afternoons
We’ve got plenty of those here too
No, the hardest part of all is that you’re just doing fine
And I don’t have a song to make you cry
