Never Make Me Cry

Go and do what you want
I know that you have the need
You know that I’ll wait
As long as it takes

You’ll never make me
You’ll never make me
You’ll never make me cry

I may not mean everything
But I’m happy to have your love
So don’t worry baby
I’ll be alright

And I’ll never make you
I’ll never make you
I’ll never make you cry

So go and do what you want
I know that you have the need
And don’t worry baby
I’ll be alright

You’ll never make me
You’ll never make me
You’ll never make me cry

Short and sweet. A classic Christine McVie ballad.

Lindsey: “I think the others wanted to counter some of the my more manic moments with something a little more downbeat, so this is the kind of thing we ended up doing. This would have worked too with more of a beat, but I assume Christine saw it as a ‘Warm Ways’ kind of ballad.”
