Joe Jackson – Trying To Cry lyrics

See the guy in the corner
The one who's drinking another glass
There's a look in his eye
That I've seen so many times in the past
I've seen it in the mirror
And I've seen it in my friends
When we realize we've lost ourselves
And we try to make amends
He'll drink another two or three
And the room will start to spin
Then he'll try to let the feelings show
But he'll find he can't give in

You remember what your brother said
Remember what your brother said
"i'll tell the whole class if I see you"
You remember what your mother said
Remember what your mother said
"never be a man if you do"

See the guy in the corner
Putting out another cigarette
Maybe someone is dying
From something that they can't cure yet
Maybe a lover is cheating
Maybe a lover just left
But something's gone, maybe forever
And it's something that he can't forget

You remember what your brother said
