Crowded House – You Are The One To Make Me Cry lyrics

Who'll face the tide
And take their chances
Will fasten the lights
To broken branches
Adrift on the ocean
In wild winter storms
I have to imagine things
To keep myself warm

The night closing in
But not to worry
Told everyone I know
That I was sorry
But I heard them all singing
For comfort and peace
And in my confusion here
I still believe

You were the one to make me cry
You were the one to take me home
Of all the people in my life
My thoughts keep returning to you
But consciousness is fading fast

Surrounded by sights
That go on living
Make circles in time
The spider web spinning
Well, I have no illusions
Of where I am now
I'll let this wave take me
And pour me down

You were the one to make me cry
You were the one to take me home
Of all the stories in my life
Only good things return to you

If I could only say the words
If you could hear me cry for help
But I'd lift my head up to the sky
And the planes that were circling
Now have gone
