Christy Moore – Cry Like A Man lyrics

Take a look around you, how much longer can you live
This way
Trash on the floor from weeks before, just gets deeper
By the day
Can't let go of that foolish pride, you keep it locked up
Time to face the pain, stand up and cry like a man
There's no one left to blame now, she had her reason why
She had to go
The feelings you hid the love you could'nt give kept
Her from touchin your soul
You got to break down that fortress inside and
Surrender to the tears in your eyes
You'll never be free again til you cry like a man

There's no shame in letting teardrops fall, it's a good
Thing it'll be alright
A little rain can make the trees grow tall, you've got
To be strong, so stand up and cry like a man

You know she's gone for good now, your love is torn
Beyond repair there's not a trace of a tear on your face
There ought to be some there those deep emotions you
Keep in the dark, if you don't let them out there goin to
Freeze up your heart you'll never be free again til you
Cry like a man So Stand Up and Cry Like a Man
