Cry Alone Lyrics

About “Cry Alone”

“Cry Alone” was first teased by producer and Peep’s best friend Smokeasac on Instagram. Later it was then teased by the Lil Peep estate on all social media.

On October 16 2018, it was announced on Lil Peep’s official Instagram that the song will be released along with a video a day later. Since the Hashtag “#COWSY2” was attached to that post, we can surely say that this is one of the songs scheduled to be released on Lil Peep’s scheduled first posthumous and second studio album, Come Over When You’re Sober, Pt. 2 which is abbreviated to COWYS2 on social media. The video was accidentally uploaded but then deleted instantly. Peep’s mother Liza stated on his Instagram this was due to her “excitement to upload it I gave you all a sneak preview last night.”

COWYS 2 has been announced that it will be released on the 9th of November 2018.

  • What has the director (Max Beck) said about the music video?

    Peep and I shot “Cry Alone” back in May 2017. He originally thought it was going to be a track included on COWYS1, but it ended up fitting better on COWYS2 which inevitably postponed the video’s release… Here’s the story:
    It was around 1AM when I saw Peep on Twitter asking if someone could bring him McDonalds in Berkeley. I texted him asking what he was doing in town (I was living in the Bay Area at the time) and he told me he’d just finished his show in SF, but that I should come to his hotel and maybe take some photos if I was down. Ever since I met him, we talked about shooting various videos, but nothing ever came into fruition so I suggested we shoot a music vid that night. He said it was perfect timing cause he’d just recorded a bunch of new music and that we’d pick a song when I got there. After listening to a few different songs and discussing ideas we chose “Cry Alone.” “It just feels right”, he said. “It’s the only song that fits the energy of the night”.

  • What happened in his hometown that makes him hate it so much?

    For what we know, his mother addressed this at his memorial service. Saying:

    He saw how the cool kids who lived in the fancy neighborhoods looked down on his friends who lived in the projects; and looked down on his own family who lived in an apartment and drove an old Nissan. […] Some of his friends' parents told their sons and daughters they didn’t want them to hang around with Gus. He cried when he told me about that […] Gus wrote a song about wanting to burn his high school down. He didn’t like most of the adults there. He despises the social scene.
