This Is My Cross To Bear

*Stevie only sings the ‘ooh ooh’ parts & chorus*

Stevie: Give you some good ideas while I’m here
Female Voice: And Stevie knows the truth. She even writes “Rhiannon”
Stevie: But, I’ve got…I’ve got some great poems. I have a poem that’s really…
Female voice: Sing
Male Voice: Ok, we ready?

All your hope has gone away
All you need now is a rainy day
Baby, come inside the rain
I know that you’ve got something on your mind

This is my cross to bear
This is my cross to bear

All your hope is died away
Died off and died away
You can go any old day
Cause you’ve got a difficult hand, oh yeah

This is my cross to bear
This is my cross to bear

Oh baby
Answer me a question
How are you gonna handle it?
Oh, baby

This is our cross to bear
This is our cross to bear

Oh, baby
This is my cross to bear
This is your cross to bear
This is my cross to bear

To me the song is always sad
I can’t sing it, baby
And you just can’t have it
But, I know if you look inside
You will find
Everything is alight, yeah

This is my cross to bear
This is my cross to bear
This is my cross to bear

My song’s alright, baby
And I’m opening up
And I’m not in the sun

Ooh ooh
This is my cross to bear

He can do what he likes
He told me it would be alright
You don’t have to cry no more
(As if somebody cared)
Yeah, you  know you’re all alone
To carry it all
It’ll do alright
It’ll do alright, baby
As if somebody cared
It’ll do alright
As if somebody cared
As if somebody cared
As if somebody cared

And you will do anything
Just so it’ll be alright again

As if somebody cared
As if somebody cared
As if somebody cared
As if somebody cared
As if somebody cared

But, You know I’m feeling that
It don’t matter anyhow
You’ve gotta do it all for yourself
Cause you’ve got no else

As if somebody cared
As if somebody cared

You called on the telephone
As if somebody cared
All the whole night
And somebody came
Are you late

As if somebody cared
As if somebody cared

You do good
It’s overlooked
And then I went home to nothing
As if somebody cared
I saw you had days go by
Grown colder than that sky
The rebel, he knows
When can I see you
