James Jeffrey-West: Music

Cry on my Shoulder

(James Jeffrey-West)
It hardly seems fair
That you’re the only one there
And you don’t even care
That I need you

So what am I to do?
It’s your job to be true
Why can’t you follow through?
One time, this time, any time

So we’re all doing time
For someone else’s crime
No reason or rhyme
To this life you’re living



You put a little beer in the baby bottle
Couldn’t stand to see me cry
You put a little beer in the baby bottle
But I know how hard you’d try


Now won’t you…
Cry on my shoulder, I will comfort you
Cry on my shoulder, I will see you through
Cry on my shoulder, it’s the world versus me and you
Cry on my shoulder, and I will make do



So show me how it feels
To pull out all your hair
And show me how it feels
To explain the hole in the wall at the top of the stairs

And kick it off the hinges
Send it through the wall
Let’s break it into pieces
Goddamn it all

I’m stronger than I think
Strong enough to take it all
Strong enough to watch you sink
Strong enough to catch my fall



You put a little beer in the baby bottle
Couldn’t stand to see me cry
You put a little beer in the baby bottle
But I know how hard you’d try


Now won’t you…
Cry on my shoulder, I will comfort you
Cry on my shoulder, I will see you through
Cry on my shoulder, it’s the world versus me and you
Cry on my shoulder, and I will make do…

I will make do
