Don't Cry Out

Album: We Are Pilots (2006)
  • I don't get you
    I can't forget what you've forgotten
    All along
    I've never been so alone

    Don't cry out
    Cease fire

    I was pretending
    Your secret kiss of confidence
    Was my escape
    The perfect game to play

    Don't cry out
    Cease fire

    Ten nine eight and I'm breaking away
    I'm all dressed up and ready to play
    Seven six five four and I'm all over you
    Counting three two one and I'm having fun

    Your fascination
    With naked walls of silk and skin with no conditions
    I needed you to notice
    That's all I wanted

    Don't cry out
    Cease fire

    Ten nine eight and I'm breaking away
    I'm all dressed up and ready to play
    Seven six five four and I'm all over you
    Counting three two one and I'm having fun

    Ten nine eight and I'm breaking away
    I'm all dressed up and ready to play
    Seven six five four and I'm all over you
    Counting three two one and I'm having fun

    Don't cry out
    Cease fire

    Ten nine eight and I'm breaking away
    I'm all dressed up and ready to play
    Seven six five four and I'm all over you
    Counting three two one and I'm having funWriter/s: JEREMY DAWSON, CHAD PETREE

  • 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.
