Written by J. D. Souther

If you've ever been taken for money
If you've ever gone down with your pride
If you've ever stood up for a good friend and lost
You know that the river is wide

Like a painter who waits for the sunrise
With a picture in both of his hands
It's like part of your life is already begun
With something that you don't understand

But don't cry now
Oh don't cry now
Don't cry now
No don't cry now

When you're lying alone in the night time
And your loneliness turns into fear
With the words of your memory failing and falling
You're drowning in a river of tears

But don't cry now
Ooh don't cry now

If you've ever thought much about freedom
You might find yourself caught in some door
With somebody you love more than (incomprehensible to my ears)
And you've been weeping but you don't know what for

But don't cry now
Oh don't cry now
Don't cry now
Ooh don't cry now
Don't cry now
Woah don't cry now
