Lyrics

I don’t care if this is a good song, I don’t care if this is a bad song,
I just hope it makes you cry.
I don’t care if the lyrics make sense, subjects match verbs,
verbs be matching tense, I just hope it makes you cry

Don’t cry for me, cry for all the shit you haven’t dealt with that makes you do
self-defeating things when all you want is peace, I say don’t cry for me

Let my melody be crap, my hook unsuccessful,
let me fall out of favor with all LA, new york, nashville,
I just hope it makes you cry

To think of all the love that this beat up world is needing,
to think this song won’t offer any hope or meaning,
I just hope it makes you cry

To think of all the love that filled up our little cramped apartment
could be condensed sent parcel post to you in one cardboard compartment
I just hope it makes you cry

Don’t cry on my behalf, ask my friends - I’m still cracking corny jokes
and I’m still the first to laugh. and my laugh still makes the meter clip.
I say let it rip! to be clear I’m not asking for a satisfying reason why,
I’m not digging for a feel good goodbye.
I just want to know you, i just want to know you still
I just want to know you cry
