You think crying at the prom is hard? Imagine wearing size 13 men's Nikes.

Heres The Lyrics

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 sitting here, crying in my prom dress
I'd be the prom queen if crying was a contest
Makeup is running down, feelings are all around
How did I get here? I need to know
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 sitting 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 sitting here, crying in my prom dress
I'd be the prom queen if crying was a contest
Makeup is running down, feelings are all around
How did I get here? I need to know
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 sitting 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 sitting here, crying in my prom dress
I'd be the prom queen if crying was a contest
Makeup is running down, feelings are all around
How did I get here? I need to know
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 sitting on the floor and all I wanna do is run
All I wanna do is run

This song came out when I was a Freshmen, I was obsessed with it. My prom was okay. I didn't enjoy it, there was so much people it made me feel trapped. I sat in the farthest corner of the room closest to the exit, I was glued to my seat, I couldn't move, I could barely talk, and when my mother arrived I got up and ran. I had her get me an hour before prom was over. My cousin was sitting with me the whole night, she kept trying to get me to go to the dance floor. I felt so bad, I felt like I ruined her night. When I got home I layed down and cried. I really thought I wouldn't have an anxiety attack.

Got left aside by my friends at prom and helped a girl I didnโ€™t know through a panic attack in the bathroom. Gotta say, this song fits the vibe me and her were going through.

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.

This song is so relatable for me. I didnโ€™t go to my prom in 2019 bc my entire โ€œfriendโ€ group completely bailed on me 2 weeks before prom and it wasnโ€™t safe for me to go alone at that point. Most of my male classmates thought I was either insane or a slut at the time bc of rumors people spread around school for two years prior and were sexually harassing me online and in the halls, worst part was that no one believed me when I spoke up about what happening so I ended up spending prom night alone in my prom dress in my bedroom crying bc I had to miss it in order to avoid further harassment
