About I Won’t Cry Anymore
I Won’t Cry Anymore was released on the same single as Because Of You. While Because of You was Bennett’s first big number one hit, I Won’t Cry Anymore reached the top twenty on Billboard. This recording is featured in Pete Hamill’s 1977 novel Flesh and Blood.

Lyrics

I won’t cry anymore, now that you’ve left me
I won’t cry anymore, now that you’re gone
I’ve shed a million tears since we’re apart
But tears can never mend a broken heart

I won’t sigh anymore, I’ll just forget you
And I’m closing the door of memories
Though you’re the one love that my arms are longin’ for
This is goodbye, I won’t cry anymore

I won’t sigh anymore, I’ll just forget you
And I’m closing the door of memories
Though you’re the one love that my arms are longin’ for
This is goodbye , I won’t cry anymore
