Suspect My Tears

From The Elvis Costello Wiki

Do you remember how to say please?
You've had your own way for such a long time
Your lash is sweet now, I dry your cheek
You think I'm powerless when you weep
You may have something, I don't deny
You look too beautiful when you cry
If I seem unconcerned
Perhaps it's time you learned

I'll cry until you suspect my tears
I'll cry until you suspect my tears
You're not the only one who can turn it on
Where and when you need to

Do you remember how bad it felt?
Big eyes would fill up
That lip would tremble
You want to hurt me
Make me feel guilty
You always promise to lose control
I stole the trick that you used to play
I'm tired of you having it your own way
With the power to persuade
Beginning to cascade

I'll cry until you suspect my tears
I'll cry until you suspect my tears
You're not the only one who can turn it on
Where and when you need to

You may have something, I don't deny
You look so beautiful when you cry
With the power to persuade
Beginning to cascade

I'll cry until you suspect my tears
I'll cry until you suspect my tears
You're not the only one who can turn it on
Where and when you need to
