Are You a Crier? Tears Make You Authentic

I choose to look at tears this way: Crying makes me authentic. It shows that I have feelings. It shows those feelings can get hurt and that I don't care what people think. Crying is completely normal.

If you're feeling sad these days, let the tears rain down as you listen to these pop, rock, country, and R&B songs about crying. And know that as a crier, you are in good company.

1. "Big Girls Don't Cry" by Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons

Although this doo-woop hit from 1962 was before my time, I love the whiney "Cry-yyy-yyy-yy-yyy" lyrics that makes it so timeless and distinctive. The memorable chart-topper features a couple that breaks up then banters back and forth about whether big girls cry. (Of course, they do! And so do big boys sometimes.)

2. "Big Girls Don't Cry" by Fergie

When you're in a chaotic relationship, there eventually comes a time when you need space to focus on your own needs. This pop song from 2007 features a narrator who expresses that no matter how much she loves her partner, she has finally reached a point where she must

... be with myself and center
Clarity, peace, serenity.

3. "Cryin' for Me (Wayman's Song)" by Toby Keith

Toby Keith wrote this 2009 country song as a tribute to NBA player and jazz musician Wayman Tisdale, his friend who died of cancer earlier that year. The song describes how much he will miss his friend's positive spirit. He acknowledges that the tears he is crying are for his own loss, as he realizes his friend is in a better place now.

4. "Tears in Heaven" by Eric Clapton

This emotional soft rock tune from 1992 became an international hit. It was written after the singer's four-year-old son tragically fell to his death from a window of a 53rd-floor New York apartment building.

Trying to come to terms with the recent death of loved one, the song's narrator asks questions about whether they'd recognize him and know his name in Heaven. In doing so, he convinces himself that his time on earth is not done yet.

5. "Angels Cry" by Mariah Carey (featuring Ne-Yo)

Talk about a woman who's desperate to get back together with her ex! In this 2009 pop song, the narrator and her partner have ended their tumultuous relationship, and now she misses him so badly that she claims she's willing to live and die for their love. (Drama queen.)

She also says that when they broke up, the angels actually cried. Overdramatic? Yes. But that's probably a key part of their rocky relationship.

6. "Let Her Cry" by Hootie & the Blowfish

In this 1994 rock song, a narrator struggles to cope with his girlfriend's addiction. Sometimes he cannot believe how this irresponsible addict is the same girl he fell in love with. He's trying to love her through it.

7. "I Cry" by Westlife

The broken-hearted guy in this pop song from 2001 is grieving the end of his love relationship. He's fallen apart, been through hell, and now he's a sloppy crying mess who swears he'll never love again.

8. "Cry Me a River" by Justin Timberlake

Inspired by Justin Timberlake's broken relationship with Britney Spears, this 2002 pop/R&B song is one of Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. It's about a man who is deeply in love with a woman who cheated.

When he finds out about the betrayal from the other man, there is nothing his lover can do to win back his affections. She could cry him a river, but it won't matter because he's done.

Facts About Tears and Crying

Did You Know?
There are 3 types of tears. Basal tears continually lubricate the eyes. Reflex tears are responses to excessive light, cold, wind, a foreign body or an irritating substance. Psychogenic tears are emotional tears. Each of these types of tears is chemically different and looks different under the microscope.
Humans are the only animals that shed tears for emotional reasons. However, scientists have witnessed elephants shed tears in grief.
Women really do cry more -- two to five times a month, on average, compared to men's crying an average of once every other month.
Involuntary crying and laughing can occur as a result of Pseudobulbar Affect (PBA), a neurological disorder. These uncontrollable emotional displays can appear as a result of a stroke, Alzheimer's, MS, Parkinson's, ALS, or another serious neurological condition.
Babies cry an average of two hours daily during their first two years. They cry differently depending on their lanugage. This "accent" develops in the first week of infancy.

9. "Don't Cry Out Loud" by Melissa Manchester

Count this recommendation as some of the worst advice ever:

Don't cry out loud
Just keep it inside, and learn how to hide your feelings.

The narrator advocates that regardless of the circumstances, you should push your feelings way down deep and put on a brave face.

But there's a balance between emotional diarrhea and fake smiling. Authenticity demands that sometimes your eyes just have to leak water.

10. "Sometimes I Cry" by Chris Stapleton

The poor guy in this 2015 country song is weeping for a lost love. Friends tell him to move on, and he really tries. However, nightime comes and he just cries alone.

How to Stop the Tears from Flowing

You were feeling sad, helpless in the situation, or vulnerable, and you couldn't control the water leaking from your eyes. Tears trigger empathy and compassion in others.

However, especially if you cry easily, you may find it surprising that others often perceive crying as manipulative. You can choose to either let those tears flow or try to suppress them using one or more of the following techniques:

  • pinch the skin between your thumb and pointer finger very hard
  • blink your eyes several times
  • look up
  • take a step back (literally) from the source of conflict
  • distract your thinking by concentrating on an inconsistent emotion, such as anger, surprise, or disgust, or
  • focus on your breathing.

11. "Pretty When You Cry" by Lana Del Rey

The woman in this 2013 pop song is in love with a man who is in love with the drugs he's addicted to. This isn't usually a story that ends well without deep intervention.

Her partner says all the right things—that she's his girl and he needs her—but she must always settle for sloppy seconds to his drug habit. She tells him that's it's okay because she's pretty when she cries.

In the Comments Section below, tell us who you're crying over and why.

12. "Cry" by Rihanna

The woman in this pop song from 2006 typically wears an emotional body armor, never letting lovers get too close to her heart. But this time was different.

Then when her lover left, she felt all the symptoms of a broken heart. Still, she insists that you'll never see her cry over him.

13. "Not Gon' Cry" by Mary J. Blige

After 11 years of marriage, the woman in this 1996 R&B song finds herself left by a philadering man she gave everything to. Instead of giving in to self-pity, she refuses to cry over his leaving, however. He simply isn't worth the tears.

14. "Grown Men Don't Cry" by Tim McGraw

If you think grown men don't cry, then this 2001 country chart-topper will convince you that indeed they do. The narrator describes several life situations in which he was brought to tears:

  • watching a crying woman and her child who were living out of their car
  • the death of his father, and
  • a moment of togetherness with his little girl.

15. "Cry" by Mandy Moore

Just because you've never seen someone cry doesn't mean they are cold or insensitive. The woman in this pop song from 2001 believed that about her lover until she saw him alone and crying, looking up at the sky for answers. While the song was a minor success in the U.S., it was a big hit in Asia.

16. "Don't Cry" by Seal

In this 1994 pop song, a guy tries to comfort his crying partner who has done something to hurt him. She feels alone, and they are both hurting. However, he tries to assure his partner that she is loved, and that their love is enduring.

17. "Big Girls Cry" by Sia

In this pop tune from 2014, the tough girl narrator feels isolated and lonely, even though she's been taught to remain strong, look pretty, and push back the tears. She explains that even big girls cry when their hearts are breaking and their souls are aching.

If you've never seen it, take a look at the accompanying video featuring a performing artist contorting her face to express a varety of emotions. It's like a strange trip through the circus sideshow funhouse. I found it utterly odd yet difficult to stop watching.

18. "We Cry" by The Script

When a person's dreams die, we all lose. We all cry.

This 2008 pop song mourns what happens when life choices get in the way of reaching dreams. It profiles several people:

  • a young mother whose daughter repeats the cycle of teenage pregnancy and poverty;
  • a talented and struggling singer who overdoses on drugs; and
  • a female politician who is forced to focus more on her alcoholic husband and the need to make a living than her loftier ideals of changing the world.

19. "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain" by Willie Nelson

In this touching 1975 country song, the narrator recounts parting with a long lost lover. Years ago, when they said goodbye, he left her crying in the rain, and her blue eyes have haunted him all of him life.

As an old man many years later, he has failed to find a love that matches his love for her, and she has died. The narrator simply wishes to be reunited with the crying, blue-eyed lover in the afterlife.

20. "Teardrops on My Guitar" by Taylor Swift

It really hurts when the love of your life is in love with someone else. The narrator in this 2006 country ditty spends nights crying and pining away for a guy who isn't aware of know how she feels.

Dejected, she knows she has to watch him from the sidelines:

She'd better hold him tight, give him all her love
Look in those beautiful eyes and know she's lucky ... .

Questions & Answers

  • What song has the lyrics, "all that's left is a bitter tea"?

    In extensively searching for your lyrics, I didn't find the exact wording, "all that's left is a bitter tea." However, there were about 12-14 songs with the words "bitter tea," predominantly by lesser known artists. However, note, that Elvis Costello has a song called "Speak Darkly My Angel" and it has the lyrics, "And all that's left is bitter barren greed." I'm wondering if this is perhaps what you think you heard?

  • Who recorded the following song in 1965 with the lyrics: "As I write my letter to you, tears came pouring from my eyes / l remember things we use to do"?

    The lyrics are slightly different, but I think this is the song you want: "Come Home" by The Dave Clark Five (1965) YouTube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ydfnC7kt1eA


    As I write my letter today

    Tears start fallin' from my eyes

    I remember things we used to say

    And the ties that bind our love

    Only one thing I want to do

    Come home (whoa yeah)

    Come home

    Long as I know I'm comin' home to you

    I'm comin' home

    Please remember while I'm away

    I think of you night and day

    Of the things, of the fun

    While we were one

    Only one thing I want to do

    Come home, come home

    Long as I know I'm comin' home to you

    I didn't think I'd ever be, whoa whoa

    As bad as it's been, no-no-no

    But now I'm comin' home

    To give you a ring

    As I write my letter today

    Tears start fallin' from my eyes

    I remember things we used to say

    And the ties that bind our love

    Only one thing I want to do

    Come home (whoa whoa yeah)

    Come home

    Long as I know I'm comin' home to you

    Only one thing I want to do

    Come home (whoa whoa)

    Come home

    Long as I know I'm comin' home to you.

    Hope this was helpful!

  • Are humans the only animal that cries?

    All mammals make distress calls such as when the young are separated from their mothers, and all land animals are technically capable of producing tears to lubricate their eyes. That's not necessarily crying, however.

    Charles Darwin claimed that animals such as the Indian elephant or macaque monkey could cry emotional tears, and some pet owners claim their dogs can cry in this way. Additionally, in 2014 an elephant named Raju who was badly abused for 50 years and kept on a chain along with spikes was photographed crying when he was rescued. When he was transferred to an animal sanctuary out of harm's way, let's just say that his "eyes leaked water." I call that crying!

    Modern scientists, however, claim that humans are the ONLY animals that cry as a form of emotional expression.

  • Is there a song that starts with the lyrics, "I cried a tear"?

    Absolutely. There's a song by the phenomenal Canadian adult contemporary/soft rock/country crossover artist called "You Needed Me" (1978). It reached #1 on the mainstream pop chart. Here are the initial lyrics and the link to the song on YouTube:

    I cried a tear, you wiped it dry

    I was confused, you cleared my mind

    I sold my soul, you bought it back for me

    And held me up and gave me dignity

    Somehow you needed me...


  • What song has the lyrics, “How many tears through the years must I cry”?

    There is a sound called, "How Many Tears" from the Martin Guerre Soundtrack (1999) that includes these lyrics. That's all I found based on the information provided.

    Here are the lyrics:

    Oh Lord, I'm not the one to blame!

    Oh Lord, why must I live in shame?

    Each night, I light a candle in his name.

    How many tears through the years can I cry?

    How many prayers to the Lord must I try?

    Still, the pain, tears at my broken heart.

    Sometimes I feel, I was cursed from the start.

    All I could hope, all I could see.

    So full of promise, each day reaching out before me.

    Once, now there's nothing, lost as if you never saw me.

    How many tears through the years can I cry?

    How many tears until my heart runs dry?

    Through the fights, that a woman must fight.

    Only to do what she feels must be right.

    Sometimes I wonder if someone hears

    Why must I live through so many tears?

      Humans are not the only animals that cry. When I was a little girl and lived with my grandparents along with two brothers and three cousins my grandparents had a basenji dog (called the barkless dog and when her pups were taken away Trixie cried tears that ran down her beautiful face and dropped on the wood floor.

      Blessings my friend.

      I had to come back after talking to my cousin and we were reminiscing about the 'hoe downs' when my mother would sing and the one song that someone did not like but my cousin and I both loved it was "Your Cheating Heart" by Hank Williams.

      One verse:

      When Tears come down like falling rain

      You'll toss around and call my name

      But sleep won't come the whole night through

      Your Cheating Heart will tell on you.

      I agree with Bill Holland in that the song Cry Me a River is an oldie that would have been in my parents era. I do not think I have ever heard it sung by Aerosmith.

      I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry by Johnny Cash is another one of which I am familiar. It seems that songs with crying as a focus is popular.

      Love how you always find those interesting town names associated with the focus of your hubs.

      Ms. Dora, yes there is a song from long ago called "Sad Movies Always make me Cry. I have the song on a 45 record and nothing to play it on. Don't know where to take my record player to have it fixed.

      Sad Movies (Make Me Cry)

      Sue Thompson

      Sa-a-a-d movies always make me cry

      He said he had to work so I went to the show alone

      They turned down the lights and turned the projector on

      And just as the news of the world started to begin

      I saw my darlin' and my best friend walk in

      Though I was sittin' there they didn't see

      And so they sat right down in front of me

      When he kissed her lips I almost died

      And in the middle of the color cartoon I started to cry.

      Oh-oh-oh sa-a-a-d movies always make me cry

      Oh-oh-oh sa-a-a-d movies always make me cry

      And so I got up and slowly walked on home

      And mama saw the tears and said â??what's wrong?â??

      And so to keep from telling her a lie

      I just said â??sa-a-a-d movies make me cryâ??

      Oh-oh-oh sa-a-a-d movies always make me cry

      Oh-oh-oh sa-a-a-d movies always make me cry

      Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

      Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

      Sa-a-a-d movies make me cry-why-why

      kallini - Sometimes you just have to let the tears out, or the pressure threathens to force their way out, and that would be worse, very unpredictable as to time, place, and object. You sound like an inordinately gifted and educated lady who can connect many concepts that for others might seem a reach. I understand the connectivity part.

      I have mixed feelings. On the one hand, I don't cry all that easily, but well up at absolutely non-important moments - I guess it's a disorder (not my fault, they put me on drugs and messed up my head for good).

      So, yes, depending on I don't know what I can be a Drama Queen and I liked "Angels Cry" (maybe I just like the melody and voices), I can be completely cold. When I cry is when I watch movies, but, of course, it has to be a very, very well-acted sad moment.

      Last time I was weeping (every time I watched that scene) at "War and Peace". It gave a me a good crying outburst for a year.

      It's interesting how music affects us. I know a song which is mostly positive and optimistic, but it begins with "You will cry, like an autumn rain you will cry, you'll go away and never forgive yourself..." (very conveniently in Italian, of course), but then everything will change...

      It was my crying song back in 2012. And then I watched an Italian (film noir) which is "once seen never forgotten" and that song was one of the central themes. Put together - the song and the film - have such an effect...

      and yet, others would say "What's the big deal?"

      I can't think of another song to add to this list and the suggestions made by others in their comments. I'm a cry-for-happy (and sad of course), and real beauty sometimes makes me cry as well. I remember that famous line in the film, "An Affair to Remember" (I'm an incurable romantic), "Beauty does that to me," Terry said as she dabbed at her tears. Such a lovely hub. Thank you. :-)

      Shyron - Thanks for the suggestions. I added Ten Thousand Angels not only to this list but also to the angel playlist: https://spinditty.com/playlists/Top-40-Songs-About... . I'm currently doing a playlist on hymns old and new by modern country secular artists and will add it to that as well. So sad about your dog crying about her babies. I appreciate you!

      The first song is the only one I know on the list, but sometimes I don't know any. Isn't there on about "Sad movies always make me cry?" I like the additional facts on tears and crying. Thanks.

      "Tears in Heaven" is my favorite! Sometimes I cry because I will be feeling sentimental or nostalgic, or I will see or hear about someone being sad, or hurt, and then I will cry. I need to drink more water so I don't become dehydrated!

      I love every video here. I would add "Ten Thousand Angels Cried" Leanne Rimes. I cry when I hear this song. Also Faron Young's song "Wind me up" (Wind me up, turn me on and watch me cry for you)

      When I was a little, the family Basenji dog cried tears when her pups were taken from her.

      Blessings Shelly this is great.

      "Cry Me A River"...not Aerosmith, but a much earliest song...40's or 50's. Was that a cover by Aerosmith of that classic old song? Anyway, that's the first one that popped into this old mind. :) Keep them coming.

      When my kitty is complaining for treats I sing to him "Cry Me a River" by Ella Fitzgerald. (He's the only one who will put up with my voice anymore). Tears come too easy. Sharing helps. Thanks for another sweet article.

      Heidi - Thanks so much for those additions! I'm not crying this weekend; quite the opposite, as I got a new car Friday. Hope you've enjoyed your weekend, too. Have a great week!

      I would also add Aerosmith's "Cryin'" to the list, in addition to their rendition of "Cry Me a River." And an oldie but goodie I can still sing by heart is The Everly Brothers "I'll Do My Cryin' in the Rain." Even though this is all about cryin', I hope your coming week is full of smiles! :)
