There is no tender way to say it's the end
And so win or lose
I am forced to choose
Between a lover and a loving friend
Let me hear you say
How you curse the day
You opened up your heart to me
That you ever invited me in
Tell me I'm the loser and you win

I don't want to see you cry
I beg you try
Not to let the pain I'm causing reach your eyes
I don't want to see you cry
Aim your words like spears
Don't break me up by breaking down in tears

Hide your pain but when push comes to shove
Don't keep your pride
Locked deep inside
Rage against the dying of my love
Don't sigh my name
Give me all the blame
Call me heartless call me cruel
And accuse me of dealing in lies
Just don't let my leaving cloud your eyes

I don't want to see you cry
I beg you try
Not to let the pain I'm causing reach your eyes
I don't want to see you cry
You got to aim your words like spears
Don't break me up by breaking down in tears

Deams come ... dreams go
Some fade ... some grow
Dream on, dream on
You've got to dream on
After I've gone

I don't want to see you cry
I beg I beg I beg you try
Not to let the pain I'm causing reach your eyes
I don't want to see you cry
You got to aim your words like spears
Don't break me up by breaking down in tears
Don't break me up by breaking down in tears
