It's Okay To Cry
Sophie Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I don't mean to reproach you by saying this
I know that scares you
All of the big occasions you might have missed
No, I accept you
And I don't even need to know your reasons
It's okay, it's okay, it's okay
I think you sometimes forget
I would know you best

I hope you don't take this the wrong way
But I think your inside is your best side

I, was that a teardrop in your eye?
I never thought I'd see you cry
Just know whatever hurts, it's all mine
It's okay to cry (it's okay to cry)
I can see the truth through all the lies
And even after all this time
Just know you've got nothing to hide
It's okay to cry (it's okay to cry)
It's okay to cry (it's okay to cry)
It's okay to cry (it's okay to cry)

I remember one time you were lost
I came to find you
And I knocked on your front door
That was you I'd never seen before
And I saw the magazine you were reading
And I read the page
And if I had just one single wish
Wish I could have said this
It's okay to cry

I, was that a teardrop in your eye?
I never thought I'd see you cry
Just know whatever hurts, it's all mine
It's okay to cry (it's okay to cry)
I can see the truth through all the lies
And even after all this time
Just know you've got nothing to hide
It's okay to cry (it's okay to cry)

There's a world inside you
I wanna know what it feels like
I wanna go there with you
'Cause we've all got a dark place
Maybe if, if we shine some light there
It won't be so hard
I want to know those parts of you

I, was that a teardrop in your eye?
I never thought I'd see you cry
Just know whatever hurts, it's all mine
It's okay to cry (it's okay to cry)
I can see the truth through all the lies
And even after all this time
Whatever it is just know it's alright
It's okay to cry (it's okay to cry)

It's okay to cry (it's okay to cry)
It's okay to cry (it's okay to cry)




It's okay to cry (it's okay to cry)
It's okay to cry (it's okay to cry)

I am a 71 year old man who came across this song after looking up some of the names mentioned in a print article about something labeled ¨hyperpop¨ by the writer. I first heard this poignant and heartfelt call from a place of great loneliness, and then read that she died just last week. I am blown away. I am also reminded again of lessons I was starting to learn when, as a high school teacher, I sponsored several clubs that no other teacher wanted to lead, such as Sci-Fi, Animé, Gay/Straight Alliance. Those lessons are that there are so many people who do not fit the few standard molds, that many people hold a world of incredible treasure and hurt just behind those cautious eyes, that most of us cannot begin to imagine the lives of the many people who do not or cannot conform to the roles or identities we assign them. I also think that these musicians are reacting very realistically to the broken world they find themselves in. I deeply regret being a part of the generation that helped bring this on.

very heartfelt comment, wow

@user-kp7wn6xl1j

I hope you are ok. You need to live in this world for as to live too. There is time for you still. Please do the thing that you thing is the best. There is no time limit to what you have to offer in this world, and to yourself of course. Big or small. The world needs your offering as long as you are here. And if you still breathing that means you can do big or small things. The world, this world, as it is right now needs you, and there is noone better to show the way, but you. That you have lived all the wrong ways in your lifetime. You deserve to live some more. For you. For your loved ones. For the world. You are still here standing after all this years that you lived so many nasty things. What a wonderful thing on its own..... Just take the time to think about it, and then do your best. You know your best, there is in your soul, there was all along. We still need you. Thank you so much for your comment. My soul heard and felt everything that you had to say. It was so precious what you had to say. Now do it right.🙏🦋🔥🌟

@DillingerR

Amazing comment, it’s really cool to see an older generation experience newer artists like Sophie and connect with it, and that sense of understanding you had for your students and for Sophie is a beautiful thing to hear. We need more people in the world like you.

I know for sure she exist on another plane now

@KamronSalimi

Beautifully said, I feel like she was such an intricate artist that her soul knew the messages her music would have even now. It really feels like her essence is speaking to us and comforting us.
