I Cannot Cry Today, My Love I cannot cry today, my love, I cannot cry today. My eyes lack tears today, my love, I cannot cry today. Instead I bleed today, my love, Instead I bite my wrist. Instead I bruise my hip, my love, Instead I scrape my fist. That's how I cope with life, my love, I cope by seeing you. Your sanguine beauty stuns me, love, Your brief touch pulls me through. They'll say I'm strange and crazy, love, They'll say I want to die. They'll say such crushing lies, my love, They never will ask why. Imperfect you may be, my love, Despite vermilion grace. You are the best I have, my love, The one thing that saves face. I'll kiss you once again, my love, And then bid you adieu. Pretend I'm gone forever, love -- A lie I wish rang true.
