    "i'd be the prom queen, if crying was a contest" mood ;) ✨

    My first ever high school prom was a nightmare, it was the day my best friend committed suicide, I remember crying and wanting to join her, the reason why she did it remains a mystery. The sad thing is everyone rejected us so we went together as friends, she was all I had and the last thing she ever said to me was, she would be my best friend for ever. Us two girls would always live our lives knowing everyone hated us and bullied us, but we just lived our lives. So if your reading this be who you are not what they want and everyone pls pray for Katlyn, as she was a part of me.

    as a person with social anxiety, this song is so relatable, in my school there's no prom, but with the feeling of every year thinking it would be better and i'll make more friends and be super nice to everyone, but then completely failing at that wanting to run tf away every time someone talks to me lol

    "Stop crying."
    "Man up."
    "Boys can't wear dresses."
    "Enjoy your youth."
    "Get up."
    "Be a gentleman."

    my boyfriend in high school wasn't nice to me. he constantly tore me down emotionally while putting his hands on my body whenever he pleased. and everyone in my life told me to leave him but i felt like i couldn't because he'd always find a way back to me. i finally managed to leave after two and a half years, but that wasn't until after prom, when he told me he wouldn't dance with me unless i would "do it" with him in the bathroom. i refused, and i spent the evening crying in my prom dress on the balcony outside the dance hall. so this song hits hard for me.

    Ok but the two guys holding hands in there prom photo- best thing ever, if they were gay, that would be amazing, if they were two guy friends that didn’t care what others think and went to prom together and held hands for the photo bc nobody else mattered, that would be just as great. Normalize this crap in music videos.

    The fact i listened to this song while getting ready for homecoming...little did I know this whole song pretty much foreshadowed the entirety of it </3

    I'm nearing the end
    Of my fourth year
    I feel like I've been lacking
    Crying too many tears
    Everyone seemed to say it was so great
    But did I miss out
    Was it a huge mistake?

    I can't help the fact I like to be alone
    It might sound kinda sad
    But that's just what I seem to know
    I tend to handle things
    Usually by myself
    And I can't ever seem to try and ask for help

    I'm sittin' here
    Crying in my prom dress
    I'd be the prom queen if crying was a contest
    Make-up is running down
    Feelings are all around
    How did I get here
    I need to know-oh-oh

    I guess I maybe had a couple expectations
    Thought I'd get to them
    But no I didn't
    I guess I thought that prom was gonna be fun
    But now I'm sittin' on the floor
    And all I wanna do is run

    I keep collections of masks upon my wall
    To try and stop myself from revealing it all
    Affecting others is the last thing I would do
    I keep to myself though I want to break through
    I hold so many small regrets
    And what ifs down inside my head
    Some confidence it couldn't hurt me
    My demeanor is often misread

    I'm sittin' here
    Crying in my prom dress
    I'd be the prom queen if crying was a contest
    Make-up is running down
    Feelings are all around
    How did I get here
    I need to know-oh-oh

    I guess I maybe had a couple expectations
    Thought I'd get to them
    But no I didn't
    I guess I thought that prom was gonna be fun
    But now I'm sittin' on the floor
    And all I wanna do is run
    All I wanna do is run...
    All I wanna do is run
    All I wanna do is run

    I'm sittin' here
    Crying in my prom dress
    I'd be the prom queen if crying was a contest
    Make-up is running down
    Feelings are all around
    How did I get here
    I need to know-oh-oh

    I guess I maybe had a couple expectations
    Thought I'd get to them
    But no I didn't

    I guess I thought that prom was gonna be fun
    But now I'm sittin' on the floor
    And all I wanna do is run
    All I wanna do is run

    I really love this song, because I can relate to it so much. It perfectly describes that feeling of being so damn sad that when it's an occasion when you're supposed to have fun, when everyone is dancing and laughing , you just want to cry and run away. That line that goes "but did i miss out, was it a huge mistake?" hits so hard, carefree people always say things like "wow it was so great!" talking about high school & in general when talking about a life path that's coming to an end, but if you weren't happy during that time, you're really gonna ask yourself what did you miss out that was so great, cause you simply can't see it. Liking to be alone, not being able to ask for help even if you need it cause you're used to do everything yourself, trying to hide your true feelings to not affect others but by doing so, being perceived as a bad person, cause they don't know and can't understand. Regrets, what ifs, expectations not met, thinking you've been crying too much already, and still, you're crying even now. This song depicts some really hard feelings in a perfect way, and I think many people don't really get the true meaning of the lyrics. It's a really sad song, but it was able to put into words a whole bunch of feelings.

    i hate this song for being so painfully relatable.
    This song is what school felt like for me, especially middle school man.
    I'm in university now, and the ambiance is so much better, people are so chill and it's SO relieving, but i can't help looking back at the awful experiences school and social anxiety dragged me into.
  • San Ackerman
    today is my prom and rn im literally crying with this song, tysm for making a song that i am can relate to
  • Usagi T. Izana
    Got left aside by my friends at prom and helped a girl I didn’t know through a panic attack in the bathroom. Gotta say, this song fits the vibe me and her were going through.
  • Andy JJ
    You think crying at the prom is hard? Imagine wearing size 13 men's Nikes.
  • Trinity Wr
    This reminds me of my worst “17” no friends ,lost my only best friend , got harassed by my own boyfriend, parents planning to separate , suicide attempts . I’m trying my best at this time
