Song Cry

Album: This Thing Called Life (2015)
  • Sometimes I get emotional
    When I can't seem to find the way I'm supposed to go
    And all these so-called people that I'm supposed to know
    They be the main ones
    Smile up in your face, but behind your back they hate
    So I hope you know
    You're like the only reason I'm emotional
    My tears fall like water so that I can grow
    Not like I was before
    Tryna make a change, I need something more

    I can't hold back these tears
    Let me cry
    They say a man ain't supposed to cry

    So I'mma let the song cry
    I'mma let my soul cry through these words
    I need to try to free my mind
    Sometimes I need to cry just to ease my hurt
    But when I let the song cry
    Hope you don't think I still won't ride for mine
    Every rose needs the rain sometimes
    But know that you can dry your eyes this time
    Let the song cry

    What am I supposed to do?
    Hold it all together when I think of you?
    In my heart I'm thinking you were gone too soon
    May you rest in peace, yet I can't sleep
    It's my point of view
    Got me in a state of mind, I'm so confused
    Crying raindrops so that I can bloom
    So what am I to do?

    I can't hold back these tears
    Let me cry
    They say a man ain't supposed to cry

    So I'mma let the song cry
    I'mma let my soul cry through these words
    I need to try to free my mind
    Sometimes I need to cry just to ease my hurt
    But when I let the song cry
    Hope you don't think I still won't ride for mine
    Every rose needs the rain sometimes
    But know that you can dry your eyes this time
    Let the song cry

    (Let it breathe)
    (Let it breathe)
    (Let it breathe)
    (Let's get it)

    I may be cryin' now but I'll be laughin' later
    No way, wouldn't be easy when you're tryna be the greatest
    That ever did it or does it
    Ain't no fuckin' time for later
    And I know they think I'm sporadic
    The bastard child of an addict
    But I'm way too calculated
    I try to love, but I never knew her
    This money, I'm blowin' through it
    Ain't rockin' red or blue, I'm unaffiliated
    'Cause my bloods and my cousins hate me
    I try to buy my mama's love, no she don't appreciate it
    So I stay inebriated
    I figured maybe J. Cole or Drizzy Drake
    Would drop a verse and tell the people how we hurtin'
    Guess I was mistaken
    This moment mine for the taking
    For all them nights I thought of suicide, contemplating

    I can't hold back these tears
    Let me cry
    They say a man ain't supposed to cry

    So I'mma let the song cry
    I'mma let my soul cry through these words
    I need to try to free my mind
    Sometimes I need to cry just to ease my hurt
    But when I let the song cry
    Hope you don't think I still won't ride for mine
    Every rose needs the rain sometimes
    But know that you can dry your eyes this time
    Let the song cry Writer/s: SEAN MCMILLION, AUGUST ANTHONY ALSINA, BRANDON ALEXANDER HODGE, RALPH JEANTY
