The Sound of Your Cry

Elvis Presley


The clock by the bed is ticking
Too loud in the quiet night
I lie in the darkness thinking
I must go before it's light
Before you open up your eyes
And you beg me to stay
I'll leave 'cause I can't stand
To see you hurt this way
Sleep my love
As I kiss you goodbye
Then I won't hear
The sound of your cry

Though I knew the time was coming
And our love would end somehow
I just couldn't bear to tell you
Exactly just when or how
I know we can't go on
That it was wrong to start
But if you wake up crying now
You know you'll break my heart

Sleep my love
As I kiss you goodbye
Then I won't hear
The sound of your cry
