Big Boys Cry

I cried last night until I couldn't
I'll cry tonight, I know I shouldn't
It hurts to know that I can't reach her
I learned to lose, she was my teacher

Well I try to hide all the tears down deep inside
But even big boys cry

I climb the walls, I chew my fingers
I run around but her love lingers
Her friends say she don't talk about me
They say she's doing fine without me

Well I try to hide all the tears down deep inside
But even big boys cry
Oh
Well I try to hide all the tears down deep inside
But even big boys cry

I know some day I might forget her
I know for my sake I had better
I want so much to say I don't care
But all this hoping gets me nowhere

Well I try to hide all the tears down deep inside
But even big boys cry
Oh
I try to hide all the tears down deep inside
But even big boys cry
But even big boys cry
But even big boys cry
