Cry Tough

Album: Look What The Cat Dragged In (1986)
Charted: 97
  • Remember the nights we sat
    And talked about all our dreams
    Well little did we know then
    They were more distant than they seemed
    Well I, well I knew it
    You knew it too
    The things we'd go through, well
    We knew the things we had to do
    To make it, baby

    You gotta cry tough
    Out on the streets
    To make your dreams happen
    You gotta cry out
    Out to the world
    To make them all come true

    Life ain't no easy ride
    At least that's what I am told
    Sometimes the rainbow baby
    Is better than the pot of gold
    You've got to stick it out
    Whether you're wrong or right
    And you can't give in without a fight
    To make it baby

    You gotta cry tough
    Out on the streets
    To make your dreams happen
    You gotta cry out
    Out to the world
    To make them all come true

    You gotta aim high, baby
    Whether you lose or win
    And when you get to the top
    You gotta get off or go right back down again

    You gotta cry tough
    Out on the streets
    To make your dreams happen
    You gotta cry out
    Out to the world
    To make them all come true, well

    You gotta cry tough
    Out on the streets
    To make your dreams happen
    You gotta cry out
    Out to the world
    To make them all come true

    You gotta cry tough
    Out on the streets
    To make your dreams happen
    You gotta cry out
    Out to the world
    To make them all come true

    You gotta cry tough
    Out on the streets
    To make your dreams happen
    You gotta cry out
    Out to the world
    To make them all come true Writer/s: BOBBY DALL, BRET MICHAELS, BRUCE ANTHONY JOHANNESSON, RIKKI ROCKET
