“While I Cry” Lyrics

They told me what you’d do
If I ever stayed with you
They told me that you’d laugh
While I cried

They told me what you’d say
That you’d turn and walk away
And find another place to play
While I cried

Now I think back on those times
I didn’t read between the lines
How all the things that you said
Never seemed to match the things you did

Thoughts keep turning ’round in my mind
Now I see reason and rhyme
Time spent with you
Has brought me something
And I’ve lost nothing
If you are that kind

They told me what you’d do
If I ever stayed with you
And sure enough
It all came true
