How You Cried (Doane Melanie)

Tell me once again how you cried The day I went away Tell me once again how you prayed To keep me safe and sheltered From the winds and the ways Of a cruel world From the sea and the sun And the sands of time That would keep falling through Until I came back to you Tell me once again how you cried Were you crying 'cause you didn't know What would become of us Were you so uncertain of my intentions Looking back I can say I shed a few tears of my own That's why I need you to tell me Tell me how you knew even then That we would have our day Nothing from before, come between To keep us among the lonely Tell me once again how you cried Were you crying 'cause you didn't know What would become of us Were you so uncertain of my intentions Looking back I can say I shed a few tears of my own That's why I need you to tell me Oh Tell me once again how you cried The day I went away Tell me once again how you prayed To keep me safe and sheltered From the winds and the ways Of a cruel world From the sea and the sun And the sands of time That would keep falling through Until I came back to you Tell me once again Tell me once again Tell me once again how you cried
