Together we cry...
Together we cry...

Jenny was a poor girl
Living in a rich world
Named her baby Hope when she was just fourteen
She was hoping for a better world
For this little girl
But the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree

When she gets that call
Hope's too far gone
Her baby's on the way
With nothing left inside
Together we cry!

What about the John Play
Could have gone the whole way
Lighting up the stage trying to get a deal
Now he's lighting up the wrong way
Something for the pain
Man you wanna see this kid he was so fuckin' unreal
When he gets that call
He's too far gone
Can't get it together to sing one song
They won't hear tonight
The words of a lullaby

Together we cry...
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Together we cry...
Whoa oh whoa oh whoa
Together we cry...
Oh we cry we cry we cry
Together we cry...
Oh we cry we cry
Whoa oh whoa oh whoa

Oh... Mary's ambition, She wanna to be a politician
She been dreaming about it since she was a girl
She thought that she'd be the one who could change the world
Always trying to pave the way for women in a man's world
But life happened, house, kids, 2 cars, husband hits the jar, checks that don't go very far now
Now she ain't making changes, she keeps her mind on her wages
The only rattling cages are her own!

Together we cry
Together we cry

There's so much sad gonna flood the ocean
We're all in tears for the world is broken
Together we cry!

There comes a time when every bird has to fly
At some point every rose has to die
It's hard to let your children go
Leave home
Where they go?
Who knows
Getting drunk
Getting stoned
All alone
Teach a man to fish, feed a man for life
You show your kids the truth, hope they never lie
Instead of reading in a letter that they've gone to something better
Bet your sorry now! I won't be coming home tonight

I'm sick of looking for those heroes in the sky
To teach us how to fly
Together we cry, we cry!

Together we cry
Together we cry

There's so much sad gonna flood the ocean
We're all in tears for the world is broken
Together we cry
Together we cry

    I think that that this song is amazing. It's a song about life, and about the way that we all dream as kids but things don't turn out the way we want to in this world. It's about the pain and suffering we all experience. Together we cray as a broken society unsure of how to fix its self. Amazing

    This song is a tribute to life...
    A song which sings of life's aspirations, its courseand what we face when we dont fulfill those ambitions...
    A ballad we sing on our paths of life...

    I think it's about choices we make and the consequences that come from the actions we take. Dreams and goals are achieved with a lot of setbacks and hard work. It is sad when people get stuck in the hard times especially when there doesn't seem to be any end to the suffering. Every one has a story it's how it ends that makes it happy or sad

    I think that this song is just about the realities of life, how we all dream of becoming something but sometimes dreaming isn't enough. Sometimes no matter how hard we try, life still isn't fair. We just have to go on and hope that everything doesn't collapse on us. This song really reminds me of livin' on a prayer, but it has a more hopeless feel to it.
