Local singer/songwriter Miss Krystle has a lot to look forward to this week. On Saturday, August 13, the pop/electronic artist celebrates the release of her new sophomore 10-song album, Run, with a show at Crabby Don's in Gilbert. Besides hearing new tracks from her album, the show also features live body and canvas painting, plus a raffle to benefit Young Ones United, which raises awareness about child abuse prevention.

While the official release of Run isn't until Tuesday, August 16, you can check out Miss Krystle's new track, "I Don't Cry," along with lyrics, after the jump. Miss Krystle says, "I was in the middle of studying for a law school mid-term, and all of a sudden the inspiration flooded over me. I stopped everything I was doing, and immediately went and wrote this song. I recorded the vocals to this song in one take, and must say that it is one of the most organic songs off the new album."

"Crying is not always the best form of emotional release. For me, it is near impossible. Since birth, I have always found other ways of expressing myself. One of those ways is through music. People should just know that they are free to express themselves however they want."

There's also a slick clip for her song, "Run," you can peep out. The video already has more than 12,000 views and won first place for the 2011 Video Music Awards at Scottsdale Community College.

I Don't Cry

[Intro] I don't cry

[Verse 1] There was a moment when I was born
I looked around at the world
I did not speak
I kept it all inside
All inside (x2)

[Pre-chorus] Through my life, I stayed the same
My someone left, caused me so much pain
I laid in my bed, day after day
Day after day

[Chorus] It's a problem
But this how I am
Since birth I did not know how to cry
Trust me, I'll survive
The thing about me is that
I don't cry
I don't cry

[Verse 2] My life is spinning, more out of control
I cannot stop myself
I want to let it out
But I keep inside
Keep it inside
Keep it inside

[Pre-chorus] Through my life, I stayed the same
My someone left, caused me so much pain
I Laid in bed day after day
Sick inside

[Chorus] It's a problem
But this how I am
Since birth I did not know how to cry
Trust me, I'll survive
My stronger side
The thing about me is that
I don't cry
I don't cry
I don't cry
I don't cry

[Bridge] Call me whatever you like
Whatever you like

Whatever you like
Call me whatever you like
Whatever you like
I won't cry

[Verse 3] While I and am young, I'll won't worry about
Life and its' constant doubts
What you saw in my eyes
Were not tears, just little lies

[Chorus x2]

[Chorus]
I don't cry
I don't cry (x2)
