When I was around 10 years old, I watched my teenage brother nurse a wound. He was crying as he soaked his scraped knee with water in the bathtub.


I looked at him with disdain. "Why are you crying?" I asked in annoyance.


I didn't realize it then, but my visceral reaction to his emotional vulnerability reflected something that I had been taught earlier in my childhood: boys aren't supposed to cry.


When I became a young adult, I had a lot of trouble expressing my emotions. I put on a smile for everyone I saw, and avoided talking about anything that would trigger an emotional reaction. When my emotions built up to the point where I couldn’t control them, I would explode. It took a long time to learn how to share my feelings - something that people still consider to be a sign of weakness in men.

I think I’m one of the millions of men out there who’ve been told, at some point in their lives, to repress their emotions. I don’t blame the generation above for how they’ve taught us, but I now understand how emotional repression can lead to a variety of complications in mental health. I wrote this song to celebrate Mental Health Awareness Month, and to challenge the idea that men shouldn’t show their feelings simply because they are men.

For all the guys out there listening to this song - be vulnerable. Feel your emotions. Share with others how you feel. I think that’s even more manly than being a tough guy.


Special thanks to my brother Roy for designing the cover art! Thank you guys so much for listening to this song. Please be safe, everyone.

Lyrics:


Hey brother what do I do

I fell off my bike now I’m cut and bruised

It stings like hell and it hurts to move

So hey brother what do I do 

He said bite your tongue now and hold your breath

Close your eyes now and count to ten

‘Cause boys don’t cry

And you won’t too

Only tough guys make it through


So what do I do now when I feel real sad

I hold it in ‘til I get real mad

I start a fight with my closest friends

Broken noses and promises

So brother I wish you spoke the truth

Brother I wish you taught me how to love myself

I wish you knew that boys 

Boys feel sad too

Boys feel sad

Boys feel sad

Boys

Boys feel sad too


Boys feel sad

Boys feel sad

Boys

Boys feel sad too


Hey brother what do I do

There’s bullies there at my new high school

They took my money and stole my shoes

So hey brother what do I do

He said put your fists up and fight them back

Don’t show weakness when they attack ‘cause

Boys don’t cry

And you won’t too

Only tough guys make it through


So what do I do now when I feel real low

I scream and hurt everyone I know

I started fights with my closest friends

Too far gone now to make amends

So brother I wish you spoke the truth

Brother I wish you taught me how to love myself

I wish you knew that boys 

Boys feel sad too


Boys feel sad

Boys feel sad

Boys

Boys feel sad too

Boys feel sad

Boys feel sad

Boys

Boys feel sad too


Hey brother how do you do

It’s been a few years since I last saw you

We’re all grown up now but I’m confused

We didn’t turn out the way we wanted to

He said my wife is gone now she took the kids

Couldn’t handle my temper tantrums

But boys don’t cry

And I won’t too

Only tough guys make it through

Brother I’m here to tell the truth

Brother I wish someone had taught us to love ourselves

’Cause I’m sure they knew that boys

Boys feel sad too

Oh yeah

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Oh yeah

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Boys feel sad

Boys feel sad

Boys

Boys feel sad too

Oh yeah

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Oh yeah

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Boys feel sad

Boys feel sad

Boys

Boys feel sad too

Boys feel sad

Boys feel sad

Boys

Boys feel sad too


Boys feel sad

Boys feel sad

Boys

Boys feel sad too
