"Tonight I Wanna Cry" as written by Monty Powell and Keith Lionel Urban....
Alone in this house again tonight
I got the TV on, the sound turned down and a bottle of wine
There's pictures of you and I on the walls around me
The way that it was and could have been surrounds me
I'll never get over you walkin' away

I've never been the kind to ever let my feelings show
And I thought that bein' strong meant never losin' your self-control
But I'm just drunk enough to let go of my pain
To hell with my pride, let it fall like rain
From my eyes
Tonight I want to cry

Would it help if I turned a sad song on
"All By Myself" would sure hit me hard now that you're gone
Or maybe unfold some old yellow lost love letters
It's gonna hurt bad before it gets better
But I'll never get over you by hidin' this way

I've never been the kind to ever let my feelings show
And I thought that bein' strong meant never losin' your self-control
But I'm just drunk enough to let go of my pain
To hell with my pride, let it fall like rain
From my eyes
Tonight I want to cry

I've never been the kind to ever let my feelings show
And I thought that bein' strong meant never losin' your self-control
But I'm just drunk enough to let go of my pain
To hell with my pride, let it fall like rain
From my eyes
Tonight I want to cry

    General Commentthis song is so amazing.
    it's about a lost love and he's been bottling up his emotions and on that night, he's letting them all spill over.
    this is a great song to listen to when you just need to cry and/or mourn.

    People see me as this emotionally solid girl. I don't cry, ever. After hearing this song, I thought, "to hell with my pride, let it fall like rain." A good cry never hurts really.

    General CommentOMG this is one of his best songs EVER!!! I loved this song the fist time I herd it. The video is a bit wierd but still good. The best part is the chorus by far.

    General CommentI bet when he first wrote this it was "swallow my pride," and then he changed it to "to hell with my pride" when he realized it was cliche.
