"Cry In The Dark" as written by and Juliana Hatfield....
Do you cry in the dark because it's easier to be alone than to talk?
When the words aren't working and you don't know how to explain these thoughts
Every look and every (e)motion has a deeper meaning
Everybody hurts nobody only when they're dreaming

Do you cry in the dark?
The light hurts when it hits your face
You don't want anyone to see you this way
You only want to be loved and taken away by someone
So you cry in the dark

And the picture of you holding hands by the fire is fading fast
And your heart is closing and you don't know how to get off this track
Every day you mime a prayer though your faith is shaken
Your godmother has got nobody because everybody's taken

Do you cry in the dark?
The light hurts when it hits your face
You don't want anyone to see you this way
You only want to be loved and taken away by someone
So you cry in the dark

This emotion is an ocean
The waves are getting high
I'll find an island, call it mine
I'm swimming for my life

Do you cry in the dark?
The light hurts when it hits your face
You don't want anyone to see you this way
You only want to be loved and taken away by someone
So you cry in the dark

    General CommentThis is one of the all time most listened to tracks in my iPod. I'm a pretty big fan of Juliana and have been for many years now. I think the main attraction in any of her work is A) Simplicity, and B) Emotional Honesty. And for me this track is the perfect example of both of those elements.

    Although this might not be a well known track or one that she will be remembered for, the combination of pop sensibility, simple melody and the honesty of the lyric and story for me add up to an absolutely classic song.

    I could listen to it a hundred times over and never get bored.
