Don't wanna cry for you
but there's nothing left to lose
If it can make me feel better
Then I'm gonna cry, cry for you

Don't wanna cry for you
there's nothing left to do
If it can make me feel better
Then I'm gonna cry cry for you

I know a man not supposed to act this way
But things they got too real, I couldn't stay
I know one day...we will both feel good
If I could be with you, you know I would

Don't wanna cry for you
But there's nothing left to do
If it can make me feel better
Then I'm gonna cry, cry for you

Don't wanna cry for you
there's nothing left to lose
If it can make me feel better
Then I'm gonna cry cry for you

I turn the lights down low, and close the door
And try to feel the way I felt before
Hell, I'll cry in the middle of the day
If it'll make me feel a better way
if it could take my pain away
Take my pain away

Don't wanna cry for you
But there's nothing left to lose
Gotta let the boy have his way, cause he can't seem to drink it away

Don't wanna cry for you
There's nothing left to do
If it can make me feel better
Then I'm gonna cry cry for you
if it'll make me feel better
then I'm gonna cry cry for you
Don't wanna cry...

    General CommentI think it means someone who has just lost a lot, or possibly broken up, and doesn't know what to do. Maybe he feels that if he cries, things could possibly change, and hes got nothing else to do or lose, so if it makes him feel a little better, he might as well do it in front of someone to see what happens.

    General CommentThe first time I heard this song was shortly after the girl I had feelings for told me she had the same feelings for me. The only problem was that she had a boyfriend and she couldn't leave him. I tried so hard to suppress the way I felt for so long that it took all of my strength not to break down in front of her. Ironically, I haven't cried over her, and I don't want to. She also told me that if she could be with me, she would, so it helps to know that we were both hurting, and not just me. At the end of the day, though, I didn't get the girl and it makes me sad.

    General CommentIt simply says something like cry, let it all out, you will feel better. This is what crying is about. Release tensions. You can do it alone or in someone's arms. In this song, he prefers to sit alone and cry, if it could make him feel better, if it could take the pain away.

    It doesn't really, but yet, it is good to cry. Never hold it back.

    This song is among the themes of the movie My Sister's Keeper, a sad movie actually, leukemia, loss and so...
