Cry For Help

Lyrics

She’s taken my time
Convince me she’s fine
But when she leaves
I’m not so sure
It’s always the same
She’s playing her game
And when she goes
I feel to blame

Why won’t she say she needs me
I know she’s not as strong as she seems

Why don’t I see her cry for help
Why don’t I feel her cry for help
Why don’t I hear her cry for help

I wandered around
The streets of this town
Trying to find
Sense in it all
The rain on my face
It covers the trace
Of all the tears
I’ve had to waste

Why must we hide emotions
Why must we never break down and cry

All that I need is to cry for help
Somebody please hear me cry for help
All I can do is cry for help

No need to feel ashamed
Release the pain and
Cry for help

(Cry for help
Is all I need
All I need
Is a cry for help
Cry for help
Is all I need
All I need
Is a cry for help)

Why must we hide emotions
Why can’t we ever break down and cry

All that I need is to cry for help
I will be there when you cry for help
Why don’t I hear her cry for help
All that I need is to cry for help
Somebody please hear me cry for help
All I can do is cry for help
All that I need is to cry for help
I will be there when you cry for help
Is it so hard to cry for help

Album Version continues:

(Cry for help
Is all I need
All I need
Is a cry for help)

(Cry for help is all I need) No need to feel ashamed
(All I need is a cry for help) Come on and release the pain
(Cry for help is all I need) Put your trust in me
(All I need is a cry for help) My love is gonna set you free
(Cry for help is all I need) All I need is a cry
