Merle Haggard – Opportunity To Cry lyrics

Just watch the sunrise on the other side of town
Once more I've waited and once more you've let me down
This would be a perfect time for me to die
So I'd like to take this opportunity to cry

You gave your word now I return it to you
With this suggestion as to what you can do
Just exchange the words I love you for goodbye
While I take this opportunity to cry

I'd like to see you but I'm afraid
That I don't know wrong from right
And if I saw you would I kiss you
Or want to kill you out of sight

It's been a long night so I think I'll go home
And feed my nightmares they've been waiting all night long
They'll be the last ones to tell me goodbye
They'll give me many opportunities to cry

Well, I'd like to see you but I'm afraid
