"Don't Cry For Us" as written by and Justin Elijah/shanks Tosco....
It's hard to know just what to do in times like these
It's hard to know just what to say
And I'm just sitting here just asking myself why
It's good to know you feel the same

And I believe
I want to be your everything
And anything you need.

Don't cry for us tonight
Don't cry we'll be all right
If I could I'd be by your side
Don't cry for us

You know that I'd give anything to watch you sleep
I can picture you just lying there
We don't need to say the words
Cause they don't mean a thing
You know you're not alone when someone cares.

And I believe
You are still my anything
And everything I need


Built of steel, we may seem weak
and rusted
But in times like these we've always won
and trusted
in ourselves

[Chorus:Repeat x2]

It's hard to know just what to do in times like these
It's hard to know just what to say

    General CommentThis song to me is like my best guy friend telling me (not by any choice of his) that we can't be together anymore all over again, but not to worry because what we had was awesome.

    General CommentThis song is really good. I've been playing it on repeat for days since I first found it! What the song really means to me is that you might not always know the answers, or be able to control whats happens, but focus on the good times and remember that everything will be fine.

    General CommentSimple lyric, catchy tune, just took me by suprise to find that they're in the same class as Hanson. Urgh, those hanson brothers are butt ugly, nothin like these guys though.

    General Commentthis song is awesome! the music and the lyrics and his voice fit so well together. i'm not quite sure about "the meaning" of it...but i think is something about him telling the girl not to worry and that he's doing everything he can
