Music Monday is a meme, created by Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek, where I focus on a song I absolutely love and feel needs to be shared.

Song: “Don’t Let Them See You Cry”
Artist: Manchester Orchestra
Album: I’m Like A Virgin Losing A Child (2006)

Lyrics taken from genius.com

Don’t let them see you cry
When the dam breaks down and the city is covered in water
‘Cause I believe we fly
When the moon takes shape and I doze off on your shoulder

I trust that you see it too

So breathe while you’re alive
Let the big band play as you tap leather with your fingers
And I tried to write in style
But the words just come and I write as soon as I see ‘em

And I trust that you write them too
And I trust that you love me too

Taken from Manchester Orchestra’s freshman album, I’m Like A Virgin Losing a Child, “Don’t Let Them See You Cry” is a soft, whispered ballad. Singer/songwriter Andy Hull croons about keeping feelings only for those we love, as well as sincerity and being authentic. Another short song, this track showcases Manchester Orchestra’s ability to write ballad-like songs in addition to their more rock n’ roll leanings.
