Tamar Braxton - Don't Cry Lyrics




[Verse 1:]
Why did I fall for you? And why am I still missing you?
Why did I let you get close to me?
You were never there for me, your kisses never meant for me
I've been alone since you walked in my life
And how was I supposed to know that you would leave me in the cold
I never want to hear you say to me again

[Chorus:]
"Don't cry, I am by your side"
You know that you've lied, words that don't mean a thing
"Baby, don't cry", I've heard a thousand times
With all your other lies, so this time don't tell me not to cry

[Verse 2:]
I don't think you know true love, and I don't think you want true love
You just didn't wanna be alone
You just wanted things your way, I don't think you even knew babe
I can't believe I gave my heart to you
And how was I supposed to know that you would leave me in the cold

I never want to hear you say to me again

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
How am I supposed to live alone?
And how am I supposed to face this world on my own?
I can't believe that you hurt me, don't wanna hear that your sorry
I never wanna hear these words from you

[Chorus:]
"Baby, don't cry, I am by your side"
You know that you've lied, words that don't mean a thing
"Baby, don't cry", I've heard a thousand times
With all your other lies, so this time don't tell me not to cry

[Repeated until fade:]
I don't want, I don't wanna cry
Words that don't mean a thing...

  33. Sweets Tai

    Wow that was amazing. She must of not had a good producer back then because this should have blew up

    Jules T

    Sweets Tai JD was her producer

    joohsay

    It was her attitude!

    t Smitty

    joohsay it wasn’t her attitude they tried to get her to sound a lot like toni and not write her own songs so her album didn’t do good she needed a better team

  34. queen&king goals

    love this song

  35. Ava W

    This song.... Lord! I'm so deep in my feelings, but for some reason I keep replaying this song. Tamar voice, these lyrics, is getting me through.

  36. linkhare7

    I'm fucking scalped and in my feelings at the same time...the vocal climax after the bridge is very Mariah Carey-esque, I live.

    angeal shannon

  49. jammyjammer2015

    Should have been a single.

  50. Debra Cox

    Stunning!!

  51. Apollosevin

    I cannot explain my sudden love for Tamar man........ Crazy enough, it started with The Real (and yes, I know, I am a NEW fan of hers, so to speak). First, I saw her perform 'King' on the show.......... I was like omg, why have I been sleeping on this girl, WHY, and ran to listen to every song......... That was an entire month ago and ALL I've listened to since then, the ONLY person I have listened to on repeat constantly is Tamar. Love & War, & Calling All Lovers have just spoken to me in so many damn ways man, and all these old tracks resonate so bad... this is the R&B I love and always will. I hope Tamar continues to make beautifully amazingly music... She's like my spirit animal, I could be having a bad day, think of Tamar and CHILDDDDDD; I'm alive hahahaha. My star, my new love, my new favourite artist, #Tamartian all day every dayyyyy. Whose excited for new Tamar & Vince next week!?

    Apollosevin

    Yeah I think she said recently in a new interview with her and Vince that she's working on a new album real soon! So excited! Love & War, and Calling all Lovers is all I've been listening to for the past couple months haha.

    TheRetroWoman80

    That's great. Can't wait for that new one to drop whenever it does. I would love to hear her work on strengthening her whistle register with more versatility. Her crazy lows and chest belts are already in the bag.

    Haris Eja

    Jolty94 u have the exact same story as me i discovered her the same way

    Shahaad East

    Come on Testimony.

    Sanele Mluleki

    Same thing happened to me and I just can't stop listening to her music, just one video of her a day then I'm alive😄

  52. linkhare7

    Honestly her best song to date

  53. Tina Borias

    I love this song ..😢💔

  54. Eva Stallings

    This is one of my favorite song should've been a hit she did that

  55. Lasonya young

    pretty song

  56. mzsweeterthanhoney

    Yassssss I thought I was the only one that loved her back then. I still keep these songs on my Playlist. This is where I fell in love with Tamar! True Tamartians know this Tamar

    jammyjammer2015

  61. Esh Griffin

    Julia Johnson

    I love this song she's a great singer...

  62. TheOneAndOnly confidentNsecure

    I love Tamar Braxton.her voice is different from Toni.they both are great but different.
    Tamar is just going to be/get bigger and better.

    TheOneAndOnly confidentNsecure

    Yes yes yes

    Norvell Jackson

    She is a cross between Toni Braxton and Mariah Carey

  63. Gina Lynn

    shes gorgeous!

  64. Rasheid Ali

    I wish she would perform songs from this album now-especially this one. She should be proud of this album despite the units sold. This is where it began for me.

    Esh Griffin

    Yes me too!! I'm so proud of her!!!

    DeAndre' Flyboi

    i do too, but she hates these songs because since they didnt do so well back in the 90s, she think that we dont like them

    Rasheid Ali

    A lot of people didn't even know about them. I think this album is being appreciated a lot more now.

  65. whitney tate

    I l♡ve Tamar!

  66. Uflymomma

    Lord have mercy, I'm actually tearing up!

  67. Debra Garner

    Unfortunately its not Toni but, generation! Songbirds aren't even trained the same technology plays a big part; its all about the shakess and backsides this generation focus on the body and allow technology to do the rest! However, I dont think Tamar needds all that extra! because when she sings live ppl believe she cant sing because of the difference in the sound.Tamar can go jazz if she wants but, her fan base are not into that! them putting her pop and r&b focus on this generation use of technology more which supposed to have help an artist at one time, now! It makes them lazy! As one person said earlier timing not on Tamar side for her to be a OG sadd because she does work hard.

    Marie Joy

    It's was in 2000 so This kind of song was amazing every RnB singer song that way in This era. I think her voice is amazing but nothing spécial. Plus toni braxton was on top and at This Period it's was a deavantage to be Toni Braxton sister that why the album ONLY call Tamar and not Tamar Braxton.People needs to understand that a vocal range don't make a singer . You have to find the right moment and the right song. Thanks to braxton family values right now she has the Spotlight she has always wanted. Sorry for my bad english i'm french though !

    DeAndre' Flyboi

    @Marie Joy Wow, I never thought about it like that.
