Cry Pretty
Written by Carrie Underwood, Hillary Lindsey, Lori McKenna, Liz Rose
Produced by David Garcia and Carrie Underwood

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 keeping it together
I hold my composure, for worse or for better
So I apologize if you don’t like what you see
But sometimes my emotions get the best of me
And falling apart is as human as it gets
You can’t hide it, you can’t fight what the truth is

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

Oh no you can’t dress it up in lace or rhinestones
Don’t matter if you’re in a crowd, or home all alone
Yea 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 pretty lie, and say it’s ok
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…

No you can’t…

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
You can’t cry, you can’t cry pretty baby
No you can’t cry pretty
