Stop the tears from falling
you can't cry yet
They can't see you bawling
else they'd be upset.
You can't let them know
how bad it is for you
They've got enough on their minds
and there's nothing they can do.

Keep yourself from crying
They don't need to see that right now.
Make sure you keep smiling
You gotta keep it together somehow.

They need you to be there
need you to be strong
You can't break down now
It would be so wrong
You gotta keep goin
just a little bit longer
Hold your tears in
make the floodgates stronger

Keep yourself from crying
They don't need to see that right now
Make sure you keep cmiling
You gotta keep it together somehow.

You're strong, you're hard
You're tough as nails
You'll keep on going
You never fail
You're always there
for evryone else
Even if that means
neglecting yourself

Keep yourself from crying
They don't need to see that right now
Make sure you keep smiling
You gotta keep it together somehow

Now they've all gone
and they're all alright
You can let yourself cry
all through the night
but when the morning comes
wipe your tears away
cos they need your
strength again today.

Keep yourself from crying
The don't need to see that right now
Make sure you keep smiling
You gotta keep it together somehow

It's hard I know
But even so
You gotta keep it
together
somehow.
