"Opportunity To Cry" as written by and Willie Nelson....
Just watch the sun rise
On the other side of town
Once more I've waited
And once more you've let me down

This would be a perfect time for me to die
So I'd like to take this opportunity to cry

You gave your word
Now I return it to you
With this suggestion
As to what you can do

Just exchange my words "I love you" for "goodbye"
While I take this opportunity to cry

I'd like to see you fine I'm afraid
I don't know wrong from right
And if I saw you would I kiss you or want to kill you?

Oh god

It's been a long night
So I think I'll go home
And feed my nightmares
They been waiting all night long

They'll be the last ones to tell me "goodbye"
And they'll give me many, many opportunities to cry

    General CommentI love this song. :)
    It was originally written by Willie Nelson. It's kind of a sad song and his version was very depressing, so I like this more upbeat twist that she put on it. It's a pretty simple song about being left disappointed by people that you love and them giving you a reason or opportunity to cry and how often, even though they've been hurtful and disappointing, you still care about them but don't understand why.
