Cry When You Get Older Lyrics

by Robyn

Hey, girl in the strobing light
What your mama never told you
Is love hurts when you do it right
You can cry when you get older

Young boy, by the traffic light
What your daddy never told you
Is love hurts when you do it right
You can cry when you get older

Hold up a second
Now I got something on my dirty mind
I start out with good intentions
But mess it up like all the time

I try to keep up appearance
But always end up way out of line
Hey, I need some kind of miracle
'Cause I lost all my faith in science
So I put my faith in me

She said
"There just must be more to life than this"
He said
"Careful 'cause you might just get your wish"

Hey, girl in the strobing light
What your mama never told you
Is love hurts when you do it right
You can cry when you get older

Young boy by the traffic light
What your daddy never told you
Is love hurts when you do it right
You can cry when you get older

Back in suburbia kids
Get high and make out on the train
Then endless incomprehensible
Boredom takes a hold again

And in this other dream
I'm on top of the world, ahead of the game
Think of reality
And it hits me hardcore to the brain
We gotta get away

She said
"There just must be more to life than this"
He said
"Careful 'cause you might just get your wish"

Hey, girl in the strobing light
What, your mama never told you
Is love hurts when you do it right
You can cry when you get older

Young boy by the traffic light
What, your daddy never told you
Is love hurts when you do it right
You can cry when you get older, hey

Bet your mama never told you that
