"Don't Shed A Tear" as written by and Robert Friedman Eddie Schwartz....
Cab fare to nowhere is what you are
A white line to an exit sign is what you are
All that I saw in you, now I see through*

Don`t shed a tear for me
My life won`t end without you
Long as the night will be
The sun will rise without you

A locked door on a candy store is what you are
A slim chance in tight pants is what you are
All that I loved you for, I wanted more!

Don`t shed a tear for me
My life won`t end without you
Long as the night will be
The sun will rise without you

You ain`t giving what I`m not taking
I`m not missing what we ain`t making
All that I saw in you, now I see through!

Don`t shed a tear for me
My life won`t end without you
Long as the night will be
The sun will rise without you

Don`t shed a tear for me
My life won`t end without you
Long as the night will be
The sun will rise without you

Don`t, don`t shed no tears
I don`t need, I don`t need, I don`t need
A thing...I don`t need no more crocodile tears

So strong I am now, I`ll be alright...
I`m a pawn for you girl, there won`t be a game...
Ah ha ha...ah ha ha...I feel it baby...
I don`t need any crocodile tears...

Long as the night, baby...
You've got to have a limelight
I won`t shed a tear darlin`
I won`t shed a tear baby, I won`t shed a tear all night
Don`t cry for me, don`t cry for me
Don`t cry for me, girl...

    General CommentOne of the best "**** you" songs of the '80s :)

    He lists a bunch of things that are dead ends, just like their relationship.

    "All that I saw in you, now I see through." I see you for what you are. And you were never what I first thought you were.

    "I'm not missing what we ain't making." And you were terrible in the sack, too!

    "Don't shed a tear for me." Don't cry for me Argentina.

    "My life won't end without you... The sun will rise without you." Life goes on. I don't need you.
