Cry In Bed

from by Porch Cat

/

about

A song about being overwhelmed, so inundated with awful realities, news stories, violent media, hopelessness, that sometimes you just have to cry. A song about laughing when you've finished crying. A song about crying and laughing with your friends and family and community.

lyrics

Well there’s nothing like getting a phone call
From the lady who gives you the food stamps
Saying that you could have just done something better

If freedom is what we make of it
Then why is there still so much shit
You’d think people would want something better

Sometimes I just cry in bed
Oh sometimes I don’t know what’s wrong with my head
Sometimes I just cry in bed
Oh sometimes I don’t know where is safe to go

And worthlessness takes too much time
And energy and peace of mind
I know that I could be some place better

Just look at it for what it is
A fucked up world where it’s hard to live
I WISH THAT I COULD MAKE IT BETTER

Sometimes I just cry in bed
Oh sometimes I don’t know what’s wrong with my head
Sometimes I just cry in bed
Oh sometimes I don’t know where is safe to go

Breathing is important too,
Oh, I wish that I could tell you
Breathing is important too,
We're not alone and we're not few
