“I know it’s not supposed to be easy. Pouring out the bottled up feelings. But I didn’t think it would be this hard walking to school with a broken heart. And the jacket ’round my waist feels stupid. I don’t know why the hell we do this. Saying I’m sorry like I’m the one who’s picking us apart for fun.” – lyrics

‘Not Gonna Cry’ tells a bitter tale of a young woman who experiences emotional pain after a severe breakup with her significant other.  

Apparently, she’s in bad shape, dealing with paranoia, and using painkillers to wash away her feelings.

Later, she admits that she’s not gonna shed a tear because her ex is a cigarette, something she quit smoking not too long ago.

‘Not Gonna Cry’ contains a relatable storyline, ear-welcoming vocals, and well-placed melodies. Also, the likable tune possesses luxurious instrumentation scented with a commercial pop aroma.
