Together we cry
Together we cry

Jenny was a poor girl, living in a rich world
Named her baby hope when she was just 14
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, Hopes 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 tryna 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
And they won't hear tonight, the words of a lullaby

Together We Cry X 4

Mary's ambition, she wants to be a politician
She's been dreaming about it since she was a girl
She thought, that she'd be the one who could change the world
Always tryna pave the way for women in a man's world
But life happened, house, kids, 2 cars, husband hit's 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 X 2

There so much sad gonna flood the ocean
We’re all in tears for a world that’s broken.

Together We Cry

The comes a time that 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?
Gettin' drunk, gettin' stoned all alone
Teach a man to fish, feed a man for life
Show your kids the truth, and hope they never lie
Instead of reading in a letter that they've gone to something better
Bet your sorry now, I wont 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, we cry

Together We Cry X 2

There so much sad gonna flood the ocean
We’re all in tears for a world that’s broken.
Together We Cry X 3

    It's about life and how we get lost and lose our ways ambition dreams even the person we wanted to become. So we cry...

    I agree and disagree with all of you. Yes, this song is about life, but how life is an obstacle. All of the people depicted in the lyrics are those that had a dream at some point and although that dream is still very present in their mind, life has become an obstacle for them. The song is not about people giving up on their dreams, it is about the inability of a person to follow through with their dreams because of other more important responsibilities. "Jenny" for instance, wanted her child to live a normal life but that is an impossibility because of the circumstances, a child bore to a 14 year old mother will never live a normal life. "John" on the other hand was a top notch actor but after rejection after rejection he turned to drugs, as it would seem, and these prevented him from realizing the opportunities in front of him. Finally "Mary" she always wanted to change the world and still sets out to do it, but her family is more important than her own dreams so she stays put to be there for her husband and kids, its not that she has given up on her dreams its just that she can't accomplish them during this era of her life.

    The song is great. The lyrics are amazing... This song sings about life, I mean The Script practically sang the lives of 4 human beings living very realistic lives. It's just beautiful. Tragic, but beautiful...

    "This is a song about life." Who's gonna teach us how to fly? We have to do it ourselves, the dreams we have as kids should continue to be always on the back of our minds, we should never give up because if we just wait for life to happen, in a blink your whole life can change 180 degrees. Beautiful song with beautiful lyrics. Most of us are just so idealistic in the foundation of our lives, we have so many aspirations and we just wait for it to fall from the sky, we do the minimum effort. How many wasted talents, people, humans are out there? So many people with so much to give but we seldomly realize what we have until it's gone. What happens then? "Together we cry."
