Lyrics to Cry Pretty
I'm sorry
But I'm just a girl
Not usually the kind to show my heart to the world
I'm pretty good
At keeping it together
I hold my composure
For worse or for better

So I apologize
If you don't like what you see but
Sometimes my emotions get the best of me
And falling apart
Is as human as it gets
You can't hide it
You can't fight
But the truth is

You can pretty lie
And say it's okay
You can pretty smile
And just walk away
Pretty much fake your way through anything
But, you can't cry pretty

Oh no, you can’t dress it up
In lace or rhinestones
Don't matter if you're in a crowd or home alone
Yeah, it's all the same
When you're looking in the mirror
A pinch or a pain
So let it flow like a river

You can pretty lie
And say it's okay
You can pretty smile
And just walk away
Pretty much fake your way through anything
But, you can't cry pretty

You can't turn off the flood when the dam breaks
When all your mascara is going to waste
When things get ugly
You just got to face that you can't cry pretty
Oh, no, you can't, you
You can't turn off the flood when the dam breaks
When all your mascara is going to waste
When things get ugly
You just got to face that you can't cry pretty, yeah, yeah
No you can't cry
No you can't cry
Yeah yeah yeah
No no no no no... whoa
You can't cry, you can't cry pretty baby oh yeah
No you can't cry pretty, yeah
