Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes – I Won't Sing lyrics

(J. Lyon/B. Bandiera)

I see you out there doing what you do so well
You smile and it's like some bright star just fell
People crowd around you as you hold out your hand
I feel the past slip through my fingers
Like the last few grains of sand

The sun will rise again
But it won't shine
A moon will light the midnight sky
But it won't be mine
You may hear me laugh
But it won't mean anything
They can play my favorite song
But I won't sing

The melody you play still sounds as sweet
As the first time that I hear it
And it swept me on my feet
That song we sang together
No I can't stand to hear it anymore
Cause it tears me up inside
But in a different way than it did before

The sun will rise again
But it won't shine
A moon will light the midnight sky
But it won't be mine
You may hear me laugh
But it won't mean anything
They can play my favorite song
But I won't sing

Why do we drift so far from the things we love
And how did we sink into what we swore we'd rise above
But I still love you and I wish for all the best
I remember the good times, yea
Forget the rest

The sun will rise again
But it won't shine
A moon will light the midnight sky
But it won't be mine
You may hear me laugh
But it won't mean anything
They can play my favorite song
But I won't sing
