about

When we first dated, she gave me a copy of a poem. Weeks later, maybe months, I was writing an instrumental for guitar and piano...and there it was on my desk. With a minor word rearrangement, the arrangement worked. My best song ever. Ever.

The Woman Who Cries
Lyrics written by Marilyn Basil Austin

The woman who cries
peers through long, curling lashes
webbed with misty tears.

She looks at you
while rivulets trickle down, down
touching deep her fears.

(Refrain)
The woman who cries doesn't ask you to hold her
but you do. But you do.
Her tears she dries on your I Love Yous
and sighs I love you.
I love you, too.

The woman who cries
smiles her dewy-morning smile
forgetting recent tears.

She looks at you
with her hazy, sunny eyes
drawing you near

(Refrain)

She looks at you
while rivulets trickle down, down
touching deep her fears.

Coda
The woman who cries doesn't ask you to love her
but you do. I love you, too.
