Cry

This song is by Slaid Cleaves and appears on the album Everything You Love Will Be Taken Away... (2009).

New love like a diamond
Like a twinkling star
But it's a whole lot of heartache
To get to where we are
'Cause every man is a myth
Every woman a dream
Watch your little heart get crushed
When the truth gets in between
Every bond is a bond to sorrow
Your blue sky turns grey
Everything you love will be taken away
Cry for your mama
Cry for your dad
Cry for everything you know they never had
Lyin' in the bed you made
Aw, but you were so young
Say a prayer, put your head down
Gotta prove your mama wrong
There's no poison like a dream
When it all comes undone
Don't you know that in the end
You're not fooling anyone
Every bond is a bond to sorrow
Every blue sky fades to gray
Everything you love will be taken away
Cry for your mama
Cry for your dad
Cry for everything you know they never had
You know they never had
Between the rum and the glass
Between the teeth and the tongue
Come December when the lights go out
You know you can't count on anyone
Between a dream and a lie
Between hope and what's real
After so many years of 'Let's work it out'
You'd think there'd be some kind of deal
Cry for your mama
Cry for your dad
Cry for everything you know they never had
The love they never had
