“Stop Crying Your Heart Out” by Oasis
This song is tantamount to an auditory anti-depressant. The addressee is clearly someone who is in some sort of state of melancholy. And based on the lyrics, the insinuation would be that the cause of this is something which transpired in the past that he or she regrets. But Liam Gallagher and the gang are here to tell this individual to “stop crying your heart out”. In other words, they should quit being overwhelmed with depression as a result of that situation. And instead they should be focused on the “destiny” which lies ahead. And one of the ways they can effectively go about doing so is by shunning fear and in contrast actively seeking perpetual happiness.
Meanwhile the symbolism used in the chorus seems to point to the idea of life indeed being temporary. However, in the course of such, good times come and go. Or another of looking at it is that a person should not think a depressing situation will last forever. Rather just as happy events have materialized before, there are also some which are forthcoming. Thus, as mentioned earlier, in order to alleviate their worry such individuals’ dispositions should be more future, as opposed to past, focused.
