She sits alone by a lamppost
Trying to find a thought that’s escaped her mind
She says, Dad’s the one I love the most
But Stipe’s not far behind

She never lets me in only tell me where’s she’s been
When she’s had too much to drink
I say that I don’t care I just run my hands
Through her dark hair and I pray to God
You gotta help me fly away, and just

Let her cry, if the tears fall down like rain
Let her sing, if it eases all her pain
Let her go, let her walk right out on me
And if the sun comes up tomorrow let her be, let her be

This morning I woke up alone, found a note standing by the phone
Saying maybe, just maybe I’ll be back some day
I wanted to look for you, you walked in I didn’t know just what I should do
So I sat back down and had a beer and felt sorry for myself, saying

Let her cry, if the tears fall down like rain
Let her sing, if it eases all her pain
Let her go, let her walk right out on me
And if the sun comes up tomorrow let her be, let her be

Let her cry, if the tears fall down like rain
Let her sing, if it eases all her pain
Let her go, let her walk right out on me
And if the sun comes up tomorrow let her be, oh

Last night I tried to leave,
I cried so much I just could not believe
She was the same girl I fell in love with long ago
She went in the back to get high
I sat down on my couch and cried yelling
Oh mama, please help me, won’t you hold my hand

Let her cry, if the tears fall down like rain
Let her sing, if it eases all her pain
Let her go, let her walk right out on me
And if the sun comes up tomorrow let her be
(Yeah)
Let her cry, if the tears fall down like rain
Let her sing, if it eases all her pain
Let her go, let her walk right out on me
And if the sun comes up tomorrow let her be, oh let her be
