Cry Baby Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Pull this car over, babe
Don't pretend like you don't know
A lot of girls have time for this s***
Honestly, I don't

[Pre-Chorus 1]
He said, "Why you cryin', baby?
Why you cryin', baby?
What did I do?" Oh
I said, shut up and kiss me, oh
'Cause I don't wanna be here for long

I swore you'd never see this side
But it's so hard to say goodbye
I don't need to apologize
Us big girls gotta cry

Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh

[Verse 2]
You should feel honored boy, uh
You got me feelin' this much
I clear my schedule for you
Let my guard down for you
And you gon' make me put it back up

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Oh, you know why I'm cryin'
Why I'm cryin', baby
You don't pick up the phone
You do the same thing to your friends and family
You gon' end up alone

I swore you'd never see this side
But it's so hard to say goodbye
I don't need to apologize
Us big girls got to cry

Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh

It feels so good, so good sometimes
Some big girls gotta cry
After this is done, just take me home
I'm feelin' vulnerable
I don't need to apologize
Us big girls gotta cry

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Ooh, it's my life
You know it hurts sometimes
My love is your love
Why can't your love be mine?
Ooh, ooh
Oh, I get a little lost sometimes
Sometimes you need to cry

What have the artists said about the song?
This is one of the most musical moments on a very musical album, and it's got that Minneapolis sound. Plus, it's almost a power ballad, which I love. The lyrics are a direct anecdote from my life: I was sitting in a car with a guy-in a little red Corvette from the '80s, and no, it wasn't Prince-and I was crying. But it wasn't because I was sad, it was because I loved him. It was a different field of emotion. The song starts with Pull this car over, boy/Don't pretend like you don't know, and that really happened. He pulled the car over and I sat there and cried and told him everything I felt."
