Lyrics

[Verse 1]
The world is big
And often wrong
But truth is bigger
And twice as strong
Some times ain't pretty, some times ain't nice
But hold your ground, dry your eyes
Here take my word, take my life
Don't cry
They say they love you when juices flowing
When money's gone they must be going
Sometimes they pray coming from a friend
But you'll be ready if it happens again
You take my word, take my life
Don't cry

[Chorus]
Don't cry when they wanna sell ya
Don't cry when they wanna fight
Don't cry when they won't believe ya, when you know you're right
Don't cry when they wanna paint you in to a corner of their design
It's your innocent blood they want, it's your innocent mind

[Chorus]
Don't cry when they wanna sell ya
Don't cry when they wanna fight
Don't cry when they won't believe ya, when you know you're right
Don't cry when they wanna paint you in to a corner of their design
It's your innocent blood they want, it's your innocent mind

[Verse 2]
Well the world is bigger and often wrong
But your heart is bigger and twice as strong
Sometimes a mystery sometimes it's blind
It won't deceive you it doesn't lie
Here take my word, here take my life
Don't cry
Here take my word, here take my life
Don't cry
Here take my word, take my life
Don't cry
