"Can't Cry These Tears" as written by Shirley Ann Manson, Bryan David Vig, Douglas Elwin Erickson and Steve W Marker....
I just don't care anymore
I've reached the end of the road
I just don't care anymore
Won't cry these tears anymore

Can't find it in the bible
Can't find it on TV
Can't find it in diamonds
There's something inside me that just won't allow me to
Find it in music
Can't find it in my soul
Can't find it in chocolate
Oh babe I can't hide it
I can't even find it in you

There's no way she can kiss you
The way that I do
I heard that you miss me
Oh you should be careful of who you keep talking to
Long nights without you have taught me to be strong
I've cut all my losses
Think no more about it cause I couldn't find it in you

There was a time I thought I'd die
If you should ever leave me high and dry
Now you don't want me any more
It's time to settle the score

I just don't care anymore
I've reached the end of my tether
I've torn all your letters up
I just don't care anymore
Won't cry these tears anymore

I just don't care anymore
I've reached the end of my rope
And it's time that I told you so
I just don't care anymore
Won't cry these tears anymore

    General CommentI love this song because I always feel that there is something missing that I can never find. But I have the same additude about it, I just don't care anymore. Sirley Mainson has very good lyrics and as far as I'm concerned, no they're not pop.

    General CommentI think that it's about a breakup like Riko says, but it's her rising above it. She's decided to try looking at it from another angle.

    General CommentIt is a song about a breakup and she is over it. But at the same time, she seems somewhat apathetic about it.

    General CommentMuch underrated track from 2001's beautifulgarbage - ne of my favourites from that record.


    Shirley's vocals are sublime (who incidentally got a nosebleed singing the vocal she had to sing so high.

    I think its about her trying to pull herself back from a dark and lonely place, not fretting or questioning it it anymore that's it it's all over just time to move on with her life.

    General Commentbest lines ever...

    "oh babe, I can't hide it, I can't even find it (love?) in you"

    "I've reached the end of my tether I've torn all your letters up"

    "I just don't care anymore, won't cry these tears anymore"

    "let's settle the score"

    Relationship was going crap and she couldn't take it anymore... she decides to tell him she couldn't find on him what she's looking for in a man / partner ... so sad. This is Another of their bests... the lyrics are just brilliant as Manson's vocals.

    :')
