"The Right To Cry" as written by Carole King and Gerry Goffin....
When you went away
You took all my pride
Leaving me with this cold and empty feeling inside
I cheated and I lied
And I played my pretty game
Now you're gone and I'm a liar
Got myself to blame

You know I don't even have
Don't even have the right to cry
You know I don't even have
Don't even have the right to cry

Once I was so strong
I thought I could put you down
I didn't know you were my strength
Till you weren't around
Sometimes I think to myself
If only the tears would come
Then the hurt would just come pouring out
Then I could walk tall

Baby, I don't even have
Don't even have the right to cry
You know I don't even have
Don't even have the right to cry

How can I ask you to forgive me
When I can't even forgive myself
And all I can do is stay right here
And watch you be happy with somebody else

I don't even have
Put myself in a position not to be able to cry
You know I don't even have
Don't even have the right to cry
