"Cry Tough" as written by Bobby Dall, Bruce Anthony Johannesson, Bret Michaels and Rikki Rocket....
Remember the nights we sat
And talked about all our dreams
Well little did we know then
They were more distant than they seemed
Well I, well I knew it
You knew it too
The things we'd go through, well
We knew the things we had to do
To make it, baby

You gotta cry tough
Out on the streets
To make your dreams happen
You gotta cry out
Out to the world
To make them all come true

Life ain't no easy ride
At least that's what I am told
Sometimes the rainbow baby
Is better than the pot of gold
You've got to stick it out
Whether you're wrong or right
And you can't give in without a fight
To make it baby

You gotta cry tough
Out on the streets
To make your dreams happen
You gotta cry out
Out to the world
To make them all come true

You gotta aim high, baby
Whether you lose or win
And when you get to the top
You gotta get off or go right back down again

You gotta cry tough
Out on the streets
To make your dreams happen
You gotta cry out
Out to the world
To make them all come true, well

You gotta cry tough
Out on the streets
To make your dreams happen
You gotta cry out
Out to the world
To make them all come true

You gotta cry tough
Out on the streets
To make your dreams happen
You gotta cry out
Out to the world
To make them all come true

You gotta cry tough
Out on the streets
To make your dreams happen
You gotta cry out
Out to the world
To make them all come true

    General CommentThis song often overlooked since it was on Look What The Cat Dragged In, when the band was heavily into the glam scene...its an amazing song. In my opinion, it could be about a break up where the people are kinda reconsidering the break up after they start remembering the good times that they had as a couple. Although, at the same time it could even be a break up song.

    General CommentThis song is about not giving up on your dreams. You have to dream big and fight to make your dreams come true. And even life not being easy, you gotta enjoy every moment of it, because some people spend all their lives chasing some special goal and just forget to appreciate the way that leads them to it. Sometimes the gold is on the journey, not on the destination. That's it.
