While I Cry (Album Version)

While I Cry (Album Version)

The Monkees

They told me what you'd do
If I ever stayed with you.
They told me that you'd laugh
While I cried.

They told me what you'd say
That you'd turn and walk away
And find another place to play,
While I cried.

Now I think back on those times
I didn't read between the lines.
How all the things that you said
Never seemed to match the things you did.

Thoughts keep turning round in my mind
Now I see reason and rhyme.
Time spent with you has brought me something
And I've lost nothing If you are that kind.

They told me what you'd do
If I ever stayed with you
And sure enough,
It all came true.
