If there is a tear on my face
It makes me shiver to the bone
It shakes me, Babe
It's just a heartache that got caught in my eye
And you know I never cry, I never cry
Sometimes I drink more than I need
Until the TV's dead and gone
I may be lonely
But I'm never alone
And the night may pass me by
But I never cry
Take away, take away my eyes
Sometimes I'd rather be blind
Break a heart, break a heart of stone
Open it up but don't you leave it alone
'Cuz that's all I got to give you
Believe me Babe, it ain't been used
My heart's a virgin, it ain't never been tried
and you know I never cry
and you know I never cry
and you know you know you know you know
I never cry, I never cry
Break a heart, break a heart of stone
Open it up, but don't you leave it alone
'Cuz that's all I got to give you
Believe me Babe, it ain't been used
My heart's a virgin it ain't never been tried
And you know I never cry
I never cry

    Vince fernier (aka alice cooper) was in his late 20's when he fell in love with an 18 year old who was a dancer on his tour. Vince fell in love with her. Both had father's who were ministers. After a quick courtship, they married. Vince fought the demons of being his alter ego alice on stage, being along in hotel rooms on tour, and he fought the demons of alcohol before and during his marriage. I think this is a love song to his wife who has stayed with him for 38 years now. They have 3 children together. Vince alleges he never had an affair with any other woman after meeting his wife so his heart was likely metaphorically like a virgin until he met his wife. Vince likely sings about being strong and putting up a bold persona, when, in fact, he likely cried his fair share of tears fighting his demons and having a conscious.
