I would say I'm sorry
But I know that this time
Been too unkind
I try to laugh about it
I try and laugh about it
Because boys don't cry

And beg forgiveness
But I know that it's too late

Cover it all up with lies
Hiding the tears in my eyes

That I loved you
But I know that it's no use
Gone away
Misjudged your limit
Took you for granted

To get you back by my side
Hiding the tears in my eyes
Boys don't cry
