Won’t You Let Me Cry In Your Arms Today?


Won’t You Let Me Cry, In Your Arms Today?
Let two hearts rub out, prized pain away
Were we ever meant to be, this calamity?
One wrecked raft, two souls, in a teary sea
Drifting past, time’s tides, astray
Won’t You Let Me Cry, In Your Arms Today?

Won’t You Let Me Cry, In Your Arms Today?
Let me smell your sweat, on your heart’s bouquet
Why veil those breasts, which hide your heart?
See my heart lay bare, bless my bleeding art
Let me bathe my bride, in my love’s melee
Won’t You Let Me Cry, In Your Arms Today?

Won’t You Let Me Cry, In Your Arms Today?
Why not see unmasked, my feet of clay
Yes, brittle is man, his heart, his soul
Don’t hold back love, let it take its toll
Its pound of flesh, in this mortal play
Won’t You Let Me Cry, In Your Arms Today?

Won’t You Let Me Cry, In Your Arms Today?
Till my sighs die down, your pittance gives way
To a fertile farm, of barren yearnings
Where bloom buds of pain, my sublime earnings
See passion of my sin, washed in shades of grey
Won’t You Let Me Cry, In Your Arms Today?
