Elton Britt Maybe I'll Cry Over You lyrics
Maybe I'll cry the day you'll say we're parting
But darling you'll never know
And maybe I'll weep each night I should be sleeping
And maybe my heart will break in two
But each time when I see you I'm gonna wear a great big smile
But when I'm alone tears may fall
But my pride will hide a broken heart inside me
And if I if I'll ever cry you'll never know
