The Cure - Boys Don't Cry

[Verse 1]
I would say I'm sorry
If I thought that it would change your mind
But I know that this time
I've said too much, been too unkind

[Chorus]
I tried to laugh about it
Cover it all up with lies
I tried to laugh about it
Hiding the tears in my eyes
'Cause boys don't cry
Boys don't cry

[Verse 2]
I would break down at your feet
And beg forgiveness, plead with you
But I know that it's too late
And now there's nothing I can do

[Chorus]
So I try to laugh about it
Cover it all up with lies
I try to laugh about it
Hiding the tears in my eyes
'Cause boys don't cry
Boys don't cry

"Boys Don't Cry" was the second single to be released by The Cure, released in June 1979. It was released in the UK as a stand-alone single but was included as the title track on Boys Don't Cry, the American equivalent to Three Imaginary Boys. Written by Michael Dempsey, Robert Smith, and Lol Tolhurst, the lyrics tell the story of a man who has given up trying to regain the love of a girl that he has lost, and tries to disguise his true emotional state by "i try to laugh about it, hiding the tears in [his] eyes, 'cause boys don't cry".
