Anthony Ramos - Cry Today, Smile Tomorrow Lyrics




I got problems
And I'll be the first to call them out
Yeah, I get lonely
Cuz lately friends don't stick around

But I keep my hopes up
Cuz that's the one thing I can control
I don't fill my mind with petty lies
I let that go
I don't fill my mind with petty lies
Let that go

And all...the troubles in my life won't bring me down
And all...the struggles in my life they teach me how

How I'm perfectly imperfect
And when it hurts, I just remember there's a purpose

So I'll cry today, smile tomorrow
I cry today, smile tomorrow

And those nights, when I'm all alone
Feeling defeated, and beaten, abandoned, and far from home
I sit in silence on the sidelines as the world moves on
With puzzled pieces in my palms, wondering what the hell I did wrong

And all...the troubles in my life won't bring me down
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
And all...the struggles in my life they teach me how
They teach me how

How I'm perfectly imperfect
And when it hurts, I just remember there's a purpose

So I'll cry today, smile tomorrow

I'll cry today, smile for all of those walls I've broken through
All those times I couldn't choose
The cards on the table
The facts and the fables

Smile for all the ones who hold me up
When the weight is just too much
And I can't bear it on my own even when I know

That all...the troubles in my life won't bring me down
And all...the struggles in my life they teach me how
Teach me how

How I'm perfectly imperfect
And when it hurts, I just remember there's a purpose

So I'll cry today, smile tomorrow
I'll cry today, smile tomorrow
I cry today, smile tomorrow
Cry today, smile tomorrow

    I got problems
    And I'll be the first to call them out
    Yeah, I get lonely
    'Cause lately friends don't stick around
    But I keep my hopes up
    'Cause that's the one thing I can control
    I don't fill my mind with petty lies
    I let that go
    Don't fill my mind with petty lies
    Let that go
    All the troubles in my life won't bring me down
    And all the struggles in my life they teach me how
    How I'm perfectly imperfect
    And when it hurts, I just remember there's a purpose
    So I'll cry today, smile tomorrow
    Cry today, smile tomorrow
    And those nights, when I'm all alone
    Feeling defeated, and beaten, abandoned, and far from home
    I sit in silence on the sidelines as the world moves on
    With puzzled pieces in my palms, wondering what the hell I did wrong
    And all…

  84. Cecelia Claire

    I simply Love this Beautiful song!!

  85. Aizawaistired

    Thank you so much for this beautiful song Anthony.

    I am so glad I found Hamilton or I would of never found out about you. Not do I only know you for Hamilton now though, I also know you many other things. Your music, you playing as Mars in She’s Gotta Have it, you playing as Justin Laboy in 21 Chump Street, You playing in A Star is Born, and many other things. You are a talented and sweet man. I only wish the for you in your life.

    The backstory to this song is so sweet too. Dariel, keep fighting away the tough things in life. Push through it all. You’ve got it honey. I believe in you. ❤️

    This song has actually helped me today as I was just having an argument with my mother. You see I listened to this last night and thought, “Woah this song is amazing!” So after my argument with my mother today I kept having depressive thoughts. Thoughts of suicide. Then I remembered this song. So I grabbed my phone and listened to it. It calmed me down a lot.

    And if Anthony doesn't see this I know that the people in the comments will. So to whoever is reading this thank you for taking your time to hear my little story.


    Once again thank you Anthony. You basically saved my life.




    God Bless

    🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤 mars did that I was shocked when he started singing

  87. Naomi Ortiz

    Anthony & Will & Dariel, thank you for the absolute most beautiful song I’ve ever heard. I broke down in tears (as have millions I’m sure). I listen to this song now every night. I suffered severe depression, the loss of my dream job and abandonment in recent years. Im better, mostly. But... Now I’m watching the man I love struggle with a deep depression and a debilitating disease. I’ve been as strong as I could be... when I introduced him to this song, he broke down and wouldn’t let go of me. He needed this song just as much as I did (and still do). From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!

  88. Chipped Diamond
