Talk to me softly
There's something in your eyes
Don't hang your head in sorrow
And please don't cry
I know how you feel inside I've
I've been there beforeSomething changin' inside you
And don't you know

Don't you cry tonight
I still love you baby
Don't you cry tonight
Don't you cry tonight
There's a heaven above you baby
And don't you cry tonight

Give me a whisper
And give me a sigh
Give me a kiss before you tell me goodbye
Don't you take it so hard now
And please don't take it so bad
I'll still be thinking of you
And the times we had, baby

And don't you cry tonight
Don't you cry tonight
Don't you cry tonight
There's a heaven above you baby
And don't you cry tonight

And please remember that I never lied
And please remember
How I felt inside now honey
You gotta make it your own way
But you'll be alright now sugar
You'll feel better tomorrow
Come the morning light now baby

And don't you cry tonight
An don't you cry tonight
An don't you cry tonight
There's a heaven above you baby
And don't you cry
Don't you ever cry
Don't you cry tonight
Baby maybe someday
Don't you cry
Don't you ever cry
Don't you cry

    No one posted on this song yet so i wanted to. I think this song was written for asxl's girlfriend Stephenaie Seymour. It's pretty good GNR song but it's really creepy how axl drowns out the word tonight at the end of the song.

    I remember how i first discovered this song, it was about 3 years ago i think... My now "ex" told me to look it up the night i first really cried in front of him. Well it was over the fone, so not really in front of him, but yeah... So it still has special meaning to me. Though it usually tends to make me cry. In a bittersweet kinda way.

    This is Don't Cry Original, not Don't Cry :L Don't Cry is from the album Use Your Illusion II, Don't Cry Original from the album Use Your Illusion I. It's not the same!

    I'm barely a preteen and already i've been influenced(sp?) by rock n roll and Guns N Roses is my all time favorite band! I can beg and plead for Gund N Roses to come back togethor for just a few tours I would be forever thankful. And as for this song I think that it is very emotional and that Gun N Roses did an awesome job for a slow song! FOREVER GUNS N ROSES!
