Lyrics:

I've been crying you know it; I've been nursing a pain in my head,
trying to work it all out, but I just can't think how it is said.

I've been hiding you know it, wait-ing for a miracle too.
We'll be stuck here forever if we don't ever try something new.

Can't you let me just one more time try and clear my head;
all the times I reached for the sun, should have been gone instead.

I've been crying you know it; I've been nursing a pain in my head,
trying to work it all out, but I just can't think how it is said.

He was trying to help me, telling and telling me what he just said;
made me feel like a poor boy, looking and looking but I can't find any bread.

You know a man gets hungry here when the sun goes down;
doesn't seem it's for me to choose and move on out of this town.

In the morning why don't you tell me what, what are you all goin' to do.
You don't have to keep secrets because I don't want to come along too.

I still got my crying to do; I'll still tell my lies;
we'll still be all living in this town, even if no one tries.

I've been crying you know it; I've been nursing a pain in my head,
trying to work it all out, but I just can't think how it is said.

1981 James M. Cooper
