Melanie Martinez – Crybaby lyrics

You seem to replace
Your brain with your heart
You take things so hard
And then you fall apart
You try to explain
But before you can start
Those cry baby tears
Come out of the dark


[Pre-Chorus]
Someone's turning the handle
To that faucet in your eyes
They're pouring out
Where everyone can see


Your heart's too big for your body
It's why it won't fit inside
They're pouring out
Where everyone can see

[Chorus]
They call you cry baby, cry baby
But you don't fucking care
Cry baby, cry baby
So you laugh through your tears
Cry baby, cry baby
Cause you don't fucking care
Tears fall to the ground
You'll just let them drown

[Verse 2]
You're all on your own and
You lost all your friends
You told yourself that
It's not you, it's them
You're one of a kind
And no one understands
But those cry baby tears
Keep coming back again

[Pre-Chorus]
Something's turning the handle
To that faucet in your eyes
They're pouring out
Where everyone can see

[Chorus]
They call you cry baby, cry baby
But you don't fucking care
Cry baby, cry baby
So you laugh through your tears
Cry baby, cry baby
Cause you don't fucking care
Tears fall to the ground
You just let them drown

[Breakdown]
I look at you and
I see myself
I know you better
Than anyone else
I have the same faucet
In my eyes
So your tears are mine


[Chorus-Variation]
They call me cry baby, cry baby
But I don't fucking care

Cry baby, cry baby
So I laugh through my tears
Cry baby, cry baby
But I don't fucking care
Tears fall to the ground
I just let them drown
I just let them drown
Cry baby, cry baby

    Melanie's album is the story of a girl called Crybaby. This is because, when she was born, she cried a lot and her mother said 'Oh! She's a crybaby!'. Her younger brother, who was in the room, was about five at the time and thought Crybaby was going to be her name. He then wrote it on her birth certificate, and it was never changed.
    In this song Melanie sings about Crybaby being very emotional and not being able to control her feelings. When she gets upset, she tries to hold in her tears but they come spilling out anyway. Crybaby doesn't care about crying so much and just lets them drop when she can't held them in any longer.
    Melanie also acknowledges her apparent she tendency to cry at small things as well, since she changes the lyrics from second person to first.
