Tonight I Wanna Cry

Album: Be Here (2005)
Charted: 36
  • Alone in this house again tonight
    I got the TV on, the sound turned down and a bottle of wine
    There's pictures of you and I on the walls around me
    The way that it was and could have been surrounds me
    I'll never get over you walkin' away

    I've never been the kind to ever let my feelings show
    And I thought that bein' strong meant never losin' your self-control
    But I'm just drunk enough to let go of my pain
    To hell with my pride, let it fall like rain
    From my eyes
    Tonight I want to cry

    Would it help if I turned a sad song on
    "All By Myself" would sure hit me hard now that you're gone
    Or maybe unfold some old yellow lost love letters
    It's gonna hurt bad before it gets better
    But I'll never get over you by hidin' this way

    I've never been the kind to ever let my feelings show
    And I thought that bein' strong meant never losin' your self-control
    But I'm just drunk enough to let go of my pain
    To hell with my pride, let it fall like rain
    From my eyes
    Tonight I want to cry

    I've never been the kind to ever let my feelings show
    And I thought that bein' strong meant never losin' your self-control
    But I'm just drunk enough to let go of my pain
    To hell with my pride, let it fall like rain
    From my eyes

  • Ava from Thousand Oaks, CaLove this song!
  • Lee from Huntsville, Althe meaning to me is that the man has fought off letting his broken heart get the best of him but is now willing to succumb to it,to just release and let it go.
