  • Cry out

    Cry out we are young
    So high and hooked on trouble gum
    Stand tall and have no fear
    Take back the power ringing in my ears

    Cry, cry out loud
    Cry, we stand our ground
    To shine, to shine like gold
    Don't break before you lose control
    Oh yeah

    Strange smells fill the air
    It's Friday at the Mariner
    The girl I love calls my name
    She's all alone in the pouring rain, she says
    Lie down on the grass, light up your smokes
    Clouds are rolling past

    Cry, cry out loud
    Cry, we stand our ground
    To shine, to shine like gold
    Don't break before you lose control
    Oh yeah

    Oh show me the future man so I can prepare
    The wheels are in motion to I don't know where
    The people who are shifting they would hold me here
    And I, I'm not afraid, no, and who are they for tellin' my direction
    Tell me, who, yeah

    Cry out I am free
    Nobodies gonna stifle me
    Got no sleep last night I'm not done yet
    Be strong don't ever listen to the doubts in your head

    Cry, cry out loud
    Cry, we stand our ground
    To shine, to shine like gold
    Don't break before you lose control
    Oh yeah

    Don't break before you lose it
    Be strong, be strong, you gotta hold on
    Shine like gold, shine like gold
    Don't break before you, before you, before you, lose control! Writer/s: CORMAC NEESON, CORMAC SEAMUS NEESON, JAMES HEATLEY, MICHAEL JOHN GERARD WATERS, MICHAEL WATERS, PAUL DAVID MAHON, PAUL MAHON
