"Cry Baby Cry" as written by and Nate Hills Tim Mosley....
one of these nights you wait and see · one of these nights you're gonna realize · the way your pride comes at a cost

leaving you short on sympathy · where is the evidence you need to know · you're better off than the rest

given attention more on touch · over time it's nothing much to show · keeping it all together - seems like forever

one of these days you'll kiss and tell · it's in the mirror gonna spill it out · whatever do you know - what do you, do you know?

a selfish obsession, a fake suicide · you can't see the truth for the colors in your eyes
they're fading and that makes you cry baby cry · but it ain't gonna kill you now

can you depend on your champagne · socialist friends to drop your name in their four viper supernova rides

however great they claim to be only betrays their insecurity yeah · see how they fall from those highs

afraid of dragons in the smoke · gonna go rehab but that's a joke · it's getting old don't tell them all that we've heard it before

you're welcome to celebrity · doing the thing so famously must wear your reputation wrong · it must be such a bore

a selfish obsession, a fake suicide · you can't see the truth for the colors in your eyes
they're fading and that makes you cry baby cry · but it ain't gonna kill you now

cry baby cry · cry baby cry

a selfish obsession, a fake suicide · you can't see the truth for the colors in your eyes
they're fading and that makes you cry baby cry · but it ain't gonna kill you now · it does make you stronger yeah

cry baby cry · cry baby cry
cry baby cry · cry baby cry
