Why Are You Crying? Lyrics

by Flying Burrito Brothers

Why are you crying and what can I do?
It's not so easy just watching you cry all alone
Can you tell me what's wrong?
And if you think it might help
I can bring my guitar and sing you a song

I know love's made a fool of others
And I know love's made a fool of me
Try to answer questions
That you never even asked of me

I know you've been left in doubt
By the things that you're not sure about
Well, I can say I've been there too
And maybe we can both find out if you will tell me

Why are you crying and what can I do?
It's not so easy just watching you cry all alone
Can you tell me what's wrong?
And if you think it might help
I can bring my guitar and sing you a song

You say there's no way I can help
And in the end that might be true
But you never know until you try
And that's all I've asked of you

And I can see you have your secrets
And that's all right, I have mine too
But you should always share your troubles
Makes it that much easier on you

Why are you crying and what I can do?
It's not so easy just watching you cry all alone
Can you tell me what's wrong?
And if you think it might help
I can bring my guitar and sing you a song
