lyrics for
Suspect My Tears

Do you remember how to say "Please"?
You've had your own way for such a long time
Your lashes sweep down, I dry your cheek
You think I'm powerless when you speak
You may have something,
I don't deny
You look so 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 it

Do you remember how bad it felt?
Big eyes would fill up
Your lip would tremble
You want to hurt me but then
you melt
You always promise to lose control
I learned a 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 it

If you hear me weeping
I may be cheating or just laughing inside
If you're suspicious that I'm sly and vicious
Here's your chance to decide
Two hypocrites collide

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 it
When you need it

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 it
When you need it

I'll cry until you suspect my tears
I'll cry until you suspect my tears
I'll cry until you suspect my tears
I'll cry until you suspect my tears
