"You can say whatever you want about me, but I am the only one that knows the truth"


Sometimes it feels like the world is against you,
Like everything you do is wrong
You just want to crawl into a corner and cry
But at these times crying is not always an
Answer just try, try by listening

Don’t Cry When you’re Sad
Don’t Yell When you’re Mad
‘Cause you know Emotions Can Bring you Down (oh oh)
Be Strong through the Tough Times
Be Happy Even When you’re not
‘Cause even though this road gets bumpy I know
You don’t have to cry every time

If you feel like nobody cares then let your voice be free
If they hurt you just say just let me be
Just keep holding on and know that if what you feel inside
Is egging you on just try to do

Don’t Cry When you’re Sad







Don’t Yell When you’re Mad
‘Cause you know Emotions Can Bring you Down (oh oh)
Be Strong through the Tough Times
Be Happy Even When you’re not
‘Cause even though this road gets bumpy I know
You don’t have to cry every time

Love can be dangerous but don’t let your emotions run wild
You can cry if you want to
but don’t let it go haywire
Just know your emotions are so powerful
And you need to control them by saying

Don’t Cry When you’re Sad
Don’t Yell When you’re Mad
‘Cause you know Emotions Can Bring you Down (oh oh)
Be Strong through the Tough Times
Be Happy Even When you’re not
‘Cause even though this road gets bumpy I know
You don’t have to cry every time

I wrote this song maybe two years ago. I don't remember why I wrote it, but I do know that I wrote this in one of my dreams.

Truly remarkable song and it is extraordinary and it's thrilling moving way it's written is wonderful iv been through multiple of depressed times and the thing that I go by is "don't think of the past it brings tears, don't think of the future it brings fears, stay in the present with smiles and chears!" Great song XD

Thanks for commenting. This was posted in 2009 so I rewrote it as 'Don't Cry 2.0' in 2011. You can find it in my profile.

Thanks for commenting. This song was posted when I was in middle school (~5 years ago) so I agree the grammar and structure is a little childish. I did write a new/updated version: TeenInk.com/poetry/song_lyrics/article/363855/Dont-Cry-20/

It's really good but some parts could be tweaked to make them even better! Good work though!

wow!!!! someone else writes from what they dreamed about! sooo cool. I dream about my writings and what to write in my dreams....it just comes to me better that way

Here's the link for, in my opinion, the better version of this song because this version is old and outdated to my style of writing: TeenInk.com/poetry/song_lyrics/article/363855/Dont-Cry-20/

Thank you all for reading! I recently wrote a new version of this song that matches my new style of writing and I hope when it's approved, you'll like it as much as you like this version. I really appreciate all the feedback! :)
