Ansley Burns – Cry Pretty Lyrics

Cry Pretty by Ansley Burns


I’m sorry, but I’m just a girl
Not usually the kind to show my heart to the world
I’m pretty good at keepin’ it together
I hold my composure

You can pretty lie and say it’s okay
You can pretty smile and just walk away
Pretty much fake your way through anything
But you can’t cry pretty

You can’t turn off the flood when the dam breaks
When all your mascara is going to waste
When things get ugly, you just gotta face
That you can’t cry pretty

Oh no, you can’t dress it up in lace or rhinestones
It don’t matter if you’re in a crowd or home all alone
Yeah, it’s all the same when you’re looking in the mirror
A picture of pain, so let it flow like a river

You can’t turn off the flood when the dam breaks
When all your mascara is going to waste
When things get ugly, you just gotta face
That you can’t cry pretty

No you can’t cry
No you can’t cry
Oh no you can’t cry pretty
