Lyrics
Don't tell me to stop crying
Please just hold me while I do
Soothe me with your silence
And just cradle me to you
Don't push me for my reasons
Or expect me to explain
How can I in five minutes shift
A lifetime's hidden pain

Don't tell your girlfriend about me
'cause your girlfriend won't like girls like me
Don't tell your girlfriend about me
If you just hold me...hold me...hold me

I went to see a psychic and
I paid for good advice
He said "Forget a romance
'Til you've sorted out your life."
Be your own mother and your father
And your sister and brother
And even try to crack the art
Of being your own lover...

Don't tell your girlfriend about me
'cause your girlfriend won't like girls like me
Don't tell your girlfriend about me
If you just hold me...hold me...hold me

In my darkest hour you'd be mine
These wildest dreams
Are no crime or are they, Girlfriend?
Coming from a place of need
Not one of abundance
You see he told me, Girlfriend

Don't tell me to stop crying
Please just hold me while I do
Soothe me with your silence
And just cradle me to you
Don't push me for my reasons
Or expect me to explain
How come I say I'm happy
To be on my own again?

don't tell your girlfriend about me
'cause your girlfriend won't like girls like me
don't tell your girlfriend about me
'cause your girlfriend won't like girls like me
You don't have to tell your girlfriend about me
If you just hold me...hold me...hold me
