From the recording October Man

Lyrics

Stop making me cry
Your clowning around brings tears to my eyes
Though I know you’re hurting, to conceal the pain
You say something funny, make me laugh again

Stop making me cry
My funny friend with the lazy eye
You make endorphins skip through my brain
Tears of laughter bathe away the strain

Stop making me cry
Don’t mess with my eyes
Stop making me cry
Making me cry

I want to help you
I want to understand
I ask you a question
Not the way I planned
Because you trust me you slowly speak
Tears rolling down your cheeks...

Stop making me cry
You make me laugh when you don’t even try
You pull a face and make me choke
Turn the sadness into a joke

Stop making me cry
Don’t mess with my eyes
Stop making me cry
Making me cry

And as I listen to what’s gone on with you
I hand you a tissue, seems all I can do
You change the subject, somehow make me smile
Play the clown cos that’s your style

Stop making me cry
Don’t mess with my eyes
Stop making me cry
Making me cry

Tears of laughter, tears of pain
Running down my face again
You make me laugh and you make me cry
