Don't Cry Out

Album: We Are Pilots (2006)
  • This song finds the narrator being a tad manipulative. She's been in a relationship and can't understand why he's forgiven her for stuff she's done in the past. She was pretending to be weak, self-conscious and innocent, when in actual fact she was putting it all on. Now the whole charade is over, and she's enjoying herself. >>

  • Liesa from Roy, UtLOVE this song, LOVE Shiny Toy Guns :)
  • Chris from Athens, GaThis song is not about the girl being manipulative. This song is about a "hook-up" between a girl and a guy. She wants more from him than a hook-up (i needed you to notice/that's all i wanted), but it seems as if he doesn't want more than that (i don't get you/i can't forget what you've forgotten). the chorus explains that she is/was happy with not being committed, but now that's what she wants, and he wants nothing in return.
