Let Her Cry - Hootie & the Blowfish

She sits alone by a lamppost
trying to find a thought that's escaped her mind
She says Dad's the one I love the most
but Stipe's not far behind
She lets me in
only tell me where's she's been
when she's had too much to drink
I say that I don't care I just run my hands
through her dark hair and I pray to God
you gotta help me fly away
And just?
Let her cry?if the tears fall down like rain
Let her sing?if it eases all her pain
Let her go?let her walk right out on me
And if the sun comes up tomorrow
Let her be?let her be.
This morning I woke up alone
found a note by the phone
saying maybe I'll be back some day
I wanted to look for you
You walked in I didn't know just what to do
so I sat back down had a beer and felt sorry for myself.
Last nite I tried to leave
She cried so much I just
could not believe
she was the same girl I
fell in love with long ago
She went in the back to
get high
I sat down on my couch
and cried
yelling oh mama please
help me
won't you hold my hand.
