The Unlikely Candidates – Cry Baby Lyrics

The Unlikely Candidates – Cry Baby Lyrics

Cry, baby, cry till the waters start to rise
Won’t wash away the problems that you made up in your mind
Cry, baby, cry till someday you realize
That it don’t mean a thing, it’s just drowning you inside

You hear a shallow beating in your chest
Are you alive or are you too just upset?
For all the love and all the plans you make
You choose to fill your head with smoke and stay awake
Even your shadow’s tired of listening
To the same songs and words that you won’t speak
Try as they might, yeah, people can’t relate
So you close your eyes and you fly off into space

Cry, baby, cry till the waters start to rise
Won’t wash away the problems that you made up in your mind
Cry, baby, cry till someday you realize
That it don’t mean a thing, it’s just drowning you inside
Cry, baby, cry
(Cry baby)

You used to think someone could fix your heart
But if you hate yourself, love will tear you apart
You lie in bed thinking you could change her mind
But you know, you don’t deserve any of your her time

Cry, baby cry till the waters start to rise
Won’t wash away the problems that you made up in your mind
Cry, baby, cry till someday you realize
That it don’t mean a thing, it’s just drowning you inside

So low, under the water below
So low, darker the deeper I go
Too long that I’ve been singing this song
Too long, don’t know if I can go on

Cry, baby, cry till the waters start to rise
Won’t wash away the problems that you made up in your mind
Cry, baby, cry till someday you realize
That it don’t mean a thing, it’s just drowning you inside
Cry, baby, cry
Cry, baby
