Don't be so hard on yourself
Those tears are for someone else
I hear your voice on the phone
I hear you feel so alone
My baby
Oh my baby
Please my baby
My baby

When we were young
And truth was paramount
We were older then,
And we lived a life without any doubt
Those memories,
They seem so long ago

What's become of them? (They've all gone for sure)
When you feel like me I want you to know
Don't cry
Not alone
Don't cry tonight, my baby
Don't cry you'll always be loved
Don't cry tonight my baby

Today I dreamed
Of friends I had before
And I wonder why
The ones who care don't call anymore
My feelings hurt
But you know I overcome the pain
And I'm stronger now
There can't be a fire unless there's a flame

Don't cry
Your not alone
Don't cry tonight, my baby
Don't cry you'll always be loved
Don't cry oh
Limousines and sycophants
Don't leave me now,
'Cause I'm afraid what you've done to me
Is now the wolf
In my bed

In my head
In my head
In my head

The challenges, we took were hard enough
They get harder now
Even when we think that we've had enough
Don't feel alone,
'Cause it's I you understand
I'm your sedative,
Take a piece of me whenever you can

Don't cry you're not alone (don't be so hard on yourself)
Don't cry tonight my baby (these tears are for someone else)

Don't cry you'll always be loved (I hear your voice on the phone)
Don't cry tonight sweet baby (I hear you fear so alone)

Don't cry, don't cry, don't cry, don't you cry, cry
Don't cry 'cause you still be loved
Don't cry
Don't cry tonight, oh

My baby, my baby, my baby, my baby, my baby, my baby, my baby
My baby, my baby, my baby, my baby, my baby, my baby, my baby
My baby, my baby, my baby
Don't cry tonight
You'll still be loved

    General CommentOh, and I must give production credits. Extremely well polished background layering you can only appreciate if you've listened to it for a couple months, sometimes years. He's amazing, and he's just got so much to say.

    An idol to say the least, truly.

    General CommentIf anyone could take a comforting hug and make it into a song, this would be the song. Did I mention how much I love Seal's music? *sighs and whines* When's Tomorrowland gonna come out!?!

    General CommentSeal speaks about his "limousines and sycophants", illusions of the substantive to make himself feel comfort, and as he is away from them, he feels naked to all the realities of living, and it is a sort of confession as he symphathizes with the listener who cries, in a figurative manner, or a literal.

    General CommentOnly just realised this! Seal had Lupus as a kid, lupus is the latin for wolf. I'm pretty sure that's what he refers to as "the wolf in my bed", that he fears that what "you've done to me" has replaced his experiences of lupus, but he still is able to say "You'll always be loved"

    General CommentI think there might be a few typos in this song.. I'm not for sure, but "I hear you 'fear' so alone.."? Shouldn't it be "feel"? And that part "cause it's I you understand".. I'm not sure that makes any sense.

    General CommentI think actually it's "Cause it's I who understand..."

    Someone back me up on this.

    General CommentSophisticated, but so so powerful.

    Unlike most of his songs, which are generally much more accessable and easy to relate to, the verses in this one seem to be very personal and cryptic.

    The best of his more popular works, by far.

    The percussion commands such a presence throughout.
