I always thought I was the strong one who had the faith when you had doubt I was the one to hide my feelings,
you were the one to let them out My daddy taught me, \"Son, be tough and strong,\" and that's what I've tried to do But now you're telling me girl you can't live like this, that you might be leavin' soon Do real men cry? I never thought it was true, maybe I could tough this one out Be strong enough to make it through, (but now) there's tears in the eyes of this stubborn fool, Do real men cry? Well, baby, now you know, that real men do. Assumed you knew that I would love you, and be your rock through thick and thin I've always been a man of few words, when what you needed was a friend I thought that if I stood tall just like a wall, it would all be good enough, Please let me hold you now and promise you girl, that I'm through with acting tough.
