(Verse)
I pushed all my problems to the back of my mind
Then they surfaced in my dreams, vague on the light
I sweep all my issues to somewhere I can find
In hope that I’ll forget but there’s just so many times

(Verse)
Why can’t I be strong and just confront all my fears?
When my fear is hurting you I’m being sincere
But how many more days can I run? How many years
Emotions flooding and I was so soon and so clear

(Chorus)
Crying for no reason, feel the tears roll down
I felt strong but am I breaking now?
Crying for no reason ‘cause I buried it deep
I made promises I could not keep
‘Cause I never faced all the pain I caused
Now the pain is hitting me full force

(Verse)
I pushed all my problems to the back of my brain
A darkness deep inside where I just can’t find my way
How can I walk with a smile? Get on with my day
When I deceived myself pretending it’s all okay

(Verse)
I tried my best to hold it all together, I know
The strings have worn away and now I’m all exposed
I try and hide it all away on top of the shelf
I can lie to everyone but not to myself

(Chorus)
Crying for no reason, feel the tears roll down
I felt strong but am I breaking now?
Crying for no reason ‘cause I buried it deep
I made promises I could not keep
‘Cause I never faced all the pain I caused
Now the pain is hitting me full force

(Bridge)
Forgive me now ‘cause I said that I’ll be there for you, care for you
I let you down, I walked away
‘Cause there were things I couldn’t say to you, say to you
I’m breakin now

(x2)
I burned some bridges down
There must be some way out
The voices speak so loud
Will you forgive me now?

(Chorus)
Crying for no reason, feel the tears roll down
I felt strong but am I breaking now?
Crying for no reason ‘cause I buried it deep
I made promises I could not keep
‘Cause I never faced all the pain I caused
Now the pain is hitting me full force

    It has a very deep meaning, she is singing about mental health issues. She means that over all of her years she has had problem after problem but has not acted on and solved any of them. Instead she has just pushed them to the back of her mind 'i pushed all the problems to the back of my brain'. She just got on with her life with a smile to fool everyone into thinking she was ok even though she knew she wasn't deep down. She ends up in complete devastation and crying because only she is aware of her issues and because they are all bottled up in the back of her mind. These issues have know become to many and all come out in one big shot and she does not understand any of them completely which is why she is ' crying for no reason'. That's the best I can explain it as I am going through the exact same situation it's really weird how we can just 'forget everything' and then suddenly have it all crashing down back on us.

    This song is about all the pain and grief she is feeling she I acting to everyone like she is all right and nobody is suspicious but she knows deep down she isn't alright. She is hiding a secret that is eating her from the inside out, she is strong but it's so big that she can't cope with it anymore and she's braking down.
