Name of Song: I simply had to cry

So many times
I almost died,
Remedied by realizing,
I simply had to cry.

Loss covers up death,
So you decide not to die,
Grief so deep inside of us,
I simply had to  cry.

Death after pain,
Loss in between,
Cry out your loss,
Don’t care if you’re seen.

Chorus
Grief is just a feeling,
Before the pain of death,
Whether it’s another’s,
Or simply your last breath.
Release all your stress,
Have a good ‘ole cry,
Might even save your actual life,
And stop yourself from dying.

So many times
We almost die,
Remedied by realizing
I simply had to cry.

Loss covers up death,
So you decide not to die,
Grief so deep inside of us,
I simply had to cry.

Death after pain,
Loss in between,
Cry out your loss,
Don’t care if you’re seen.

Chorus
Grief is just a feeling,
Before the pain of death,
Whether it’s another’s,
Or simply your last breath.
Release all your stress,
Have a good ‘ole cry,
Might even save your actual life
And stop yourself from dying.

Looking into grief,
It’s all about your loss,
Losing your own body feels
as though they are our boss.

Bodies are our bosses,
Sad but true it seems,
Obeying them at different times,
Infusing all our dreams.

They always give us orders,
Eat and sleep and sin,
Separating self from that
And find out where you’ve been.

Chorus
Grief is just a feeling,
Before the pain of death,
Whether it’s another’s,
Or simply your last breath.
Let out all your stress,
Have a good ‘ole cry,
Might even save your actual life,
And stop yourself from dying.
