Melissa Manchester – Don't Cry Out Loud lyrics
Baby cried the day the circus came to town
'Cause she didn't want parades just passing by her
So she painted on a smile
And took up with some clown
While she danced without a net upon the wire
I know a lot about her
'Cause you see
Baby is an awful lot like me

Don't cry out loud
Just keep it inside
Learn how to hide your feelings
Fly high and proud
And if you should fall
Remember you almost had it all


Baby saw that when they pulled that big top down
They left behind her dreams among the litter
The different kind of love she thought she'd found
There was nothin' left but sawdust and some glitter
But baby can't be broken
'Cause you see
She had the finest teacher
That was me, I told her

Don't cry out loud
Just keep it inside
And learn how to hide your feelings
Fly high and proud
And if you should fall
Remember you almost had it all

Don't cry out loud
Just keep it inside
And learn how to hide your feelings
Fly high and proud
And if you should fall
Remember you almost made it

Don't cry out loud
Just keep it inside
And learn how to hide your feelings
Fly high and proud
And if you should fall
Remember you almost had it all

    Its a sad song about not wanting life to pass you by. She met someone who appeared exciting - contrary to her small town and left with him (danced without a net upon the wire). Only then did she realize he wasn't all he appeared (torn the cover off there was nothing but sawdust). Now she just lives with the choice she made behind a painted smile. Internal sadness after chasing false dreams.

    A life with no meaning, look and try and join others wiho may appear to have what you may be looking for. That something inside that you have not defined. It is useless the things that felt real for a while, gave meaning and pleasure were not yours but borrowed. You can console yourself that you almost got what you wnated but you have not found the real thing yet.
