Britt Nicole: When She Cries Meaning

When She Cries Lyrics

Little girl terrified
She'd leave her room if only bruises would heal
A home is no place to hide
Her heart is breaking from the pain that she feels

Every day's the same
She fights to find her way
She hurts, she breaks, she hides, and...

    I think it is about a girl who is so ashamed of herself, she resorts to cutting or any kind of selfharm.I don't think it is about abuse at home or being bullied at school.It doesn't have to be abuse or bullying. She could be really hating herself and she doesn't want to leave her room because she doesn't want anyone to notice the bruises the cuts leave. And home might not be a place to hide because her parents will notice someday and/or she tries to block put the pain inside her when she is at home, but she can't. So it is no place to hide for her. Abuse and Bullying is very horrible and no one should ever go through it, but hating yourself, not liking the way you look or not liking anything about yourself, thinking you are not worth it, being anxious and depressed because of it, not being able to turn you mind off and having your heart break because of it... that is also very horrible. So just try to have an open mind!

    after listening to this song many times, I believe that the song is about a girl that is having a very hard time dealing with bullying and other issues and she has resorted to cutting herself and self harm to make herself feel much better and fill that hole of hurt that she feels exists. She is always wondering why she is always feeling so alone and never given the help that she needs and she feels as if her cries are unheard by everyone. When she says "a home is no place to hide" she could mean that the bullying has followed her home through the internet and cyber bullying and she feels like she has no escape. She is trapped in constant taunts and comments that causes her to do what she does. It creates a mood that makes people think about what is going on with people and giving them the hope that there is always someone there for you no matter what. There is always help and nothing is impossible for you or wrong with you. ♥️

    In the song it says she'd leave her room if only bruises would heal I think she had a bad past and she can't leave because it reminds her. And she struggles and her family and everyone else doesn't see or hear her pain and she thought the only way to solve it was by cutting herself to try and wash away the past but it doesn't work then realized that God is watching over her and that things will happen for a reason and not to be afraid that he will help her get through it .

    This really is a great song, inspirational, has a great point, just amazing. For what I see in it is yes she does use self harm to deal with her emotions, to try to feel, I understand it, I have friends who used to so I know what it's like, like a comment I saw said "she thinks no one hears her, but The Lord does and he helps her through her pain," I won't say right or wrong bc of religious purposes but I do believe that he does heal, he does hear you, but again I don't want to preach on about it, (again for religious purposes and well the length of this comment) also I saw another comment that talked about speaking up to bullying, I like that, I understand how it feels, maybe not to that extream, but I do understand, and that person who wrote that comment great job, we are here to help, you can be that voice that could possibly save a life, be the change the world wants to see, be that person, be that friend, we can put an end to bullying, we all know what's it's like, so as another lyrics from a different song would say "come on dry your eyes meet me on the other side run as fast as you can and we'll make it out alive, you know better now you don't have to live like this, go tell them we don't have to live like this." (Icon for hire:get well) so before this becomes longer than I meant it to be just know that we're here if you need anything. Ps. Sorry I got off subject.

    Wow, okay. It's a song about a girl who cuts. Yeah, so, I know many kids who do it. It's not just girls. It's guys as well. Everything is not about girls.
    But it's a wonderful song. Blessings.

    i don't think it has anything to do with abuse, when she says 'ah home is no place to hide@ I think it meand that she souldnt have t still hide and cover up in her own home but shes obviously got a problem that she cant share with. And I think 'he' Is god not a boy because it does mention god then goes on to say that hes watching over her.
    just what I think.

    It's about a girl. She's depressed from bullying/abuse from parents/school. She turns to cutting, and hides it from everyone. She secretly wants someone to figure it out and help her. But no one reads deeper, everyone cares, but not enough. She doesn't find any use in life anymore. Nothing excites her. Then she finds God. And he saves her. And takes care of her,shows her the way.

    im not sure but i think its about getting abused at home and cutting to relieve the pain then finding her true love also im not sure but you can also link the song with freedom like shes free from the pain because she found who she loves (sorry bout the rubbish spelling)

    I think that the meaning of this song has to do with something she has felt or dealt with in the past, and the only way to really let it go is to express her feelings about it. I have listened to this song for years, and I have just recently discovered what it means.I think its sad because I can relate to just about EVERYTHING she sings about in this song. Its not the way she sings it, its the meaning behind it and what she went through. We all have our mountains that we climb! And most of the time we get out of it.
    I hope this has helped anyone out there that needs the help. If you wanna talk to me personally,

    No promises I will be able to get back to you that same day, but I'll get back.
    I promise.

    This is talking about a girl who deals with self mutilation because of the hard life she deals with at home and school. She wonders if anyone can help her or if shes alone in this world. Then, shes told that God hears her so it will be alright. Britt Nicole is a christian singer so this is the interpretation that suits best.

    i believe that this song has a good meaning about a girl who is bullied at school (bulling is a serious thing and u should report if u see or is being bullied some people try to kill there sell to get rid of it) and she has bruises from it and she doesn't want people to know so she turns to cutting her self to stop it but it doesn't help. so she tries to pray and doesn't think anyone can hear her but i starts to stop and she has Jesus to believe in. (Jesus really does save so help other people who are bullied or is a bully to stop and get help.

    i think it means like this girl is going through a hard time. maybe with family or friends, and she ends up turning to cutting. i think she was just afraid that if she let heself love someone, then they would just hurt her. i think this person made her feel like she deserved the pain. so she took matters into her own hands and brought the pain to herself. then she finally found someone, a guy, that she could trust. sje loved him,as a friend. and he realized she cut, and he stopped her and gave her a reason to live.

    In an interview with Britt, she said that she wrote the song for the people she meets at her shows who cut or feel rejected. She personally has never cut, but she has struggled with feeling rejected after her parent's divorce. I think the most important part of the song is when it says "don't be afraid cause seasons change, and God is watching over you, He hears you" because that is where the hope is. I think the purpose of this song was to give hope that even though you feel rejected, God never will reject you.
