Liner Notes: 

Always wanted to write a lyric around the title "Crocodile Tears" and with the theme ....."Tears" there's now a motivating excuse.

Lyrics: 

Crocodile Tears

She pretends to be nice
Playing the same ol song
And anyone who doesn't dance to her tune
Is always in the wrong
Pretends to pout
If she doesn't get her way
While those around her cave
Oh it's just another day

It's another day in the life
Of Crocodile tears
Masking her insecurities
Depression and fears
She works the crowd
With her good looks
Gets the boys all drooling
When she sinks her teeth in and hooks

Likes to be the victim
Where everyone feels bad
And get em all soaking in muddy water
Deep inside makes her glad
Cold hearted thoughts
She's a predator at heart
And pain that she displays
Has intention at the start

It's another day in the life
Of Crocodile tears
Masking her insecurities
Depression and fears
She works the crowd
With her good looks
Gets the boys all drooling
When she sinks her teeth in and hooks

A sophisticated phony who makes her eyeliner run
And watches all the boys gather round, while she has some fun

It's another day in the life
Of Crocodile tears
Masking her insecurities
Depression and fears
She works the crowd
With her good looks
Gets the boys all drooling
When she sinks her teeth in and hooks

Just quietly, i think i might know this person! Smile really well written, paints a picture of that recognizable person.

Fun take on the prompt! Yes, I think we've all met the "crocodile tears" person a time or two hundred. Great details in the lyrics.

That chorus says it all! And the verses develop the character well. Fun take on the prompt. Great attitude and cadence for music!

I love the hook! This grabbed me right away. Great story and very well written. Scary thought, but it's very relatable. I think I wrote about her sister Wink
