There are 2 songs out on Country Radio right now, that I, for the life of me, can't quite figure out. If you have any interpretations, please feel free to share, I will include the songs, and lyrics:

"More Like Her"~Miranda Lambert

She's beautiful in her simple little way

She don't have too much to say when she gets mad

She understands she don't let go of anything

Even when the pain gets really bad

Guess I should've been more like that

You had it all for a pretty little while

And some how you made me smile when I was sad

You took a chance on a bruised and beaten heart

Then you realized you wanted what you had

I guess I should've been more like that

I should have held on to my pride

I should have never let you lie

I guess you got what you deserverd

I guess I should've been more like her

Forgiving you, she's stronger than I am

You don't look much like a man from where I'm at

It's plain to see desperatino showed it's truth

You love her and she loves you with all she has

I guess I should've been more like that

I should have held on to my pride

I should have never let you lie

I guess you got what you deserverd

I guess I should've been more like her

She's beautiful in her simple, little way

And

"She Never Cried In Front of Me"~Toby Keith

Seven thirty five

She`s someone`s else wife

I can get`on with my life

And that thrills me

She married him today

Her daddy gave the bride away

I heard a tear rolled down her face

And that kills me

Cause now I, can see why

She`s finally cryin`

How was I supposed to know

She was slowly letting go

If I was putting her through hell

Hell I couldn`t tell

She could`ve given me a sign

And opened up my eyes

How was I supposed to see

She never cried in front of me

Yeah maybe I might`ve changed

It`s hard for me to say

But the story's still the same

And it`s a sad one

And I`ll always believe

If she ever did cry for me

They were tears that you can`t see

You know the bad ones

And now I, can see why

She`s finally cryin`

Repeat chourus

Without a doubt

I know now

How it oughta be

Cause she`s gone & it`s wrong

And it bothers me

Tomorrow I`ll still be

Asking myself

How was I supposed to know

She was slowly letting go

If I was putting her through hell

Hell I couldn`t tell

She could`ve given me a sign

And opened up my eyes

How was I supposed to see

How was I supposed to see

She never cried in front of me

Hell I couldn`t tell

Thanks very much!

OK Ash, here goes (and I'm not a country connoisseur by trade):

In the first song, Miranda sings from the point of view of a mistress jealous that her lover reconciled with his wife, and lamenting that she couldn't forgive her lover the way his wife forgave him for their affair.

In the second song, Toby's ex just married another man, and the tear of joy she cried at her wedding gets him to think that if she had cried in front of him to show her unhappiness, he might have changed and they might still be together.

"She Never Cried In Front of Me"~Toby Keith

Sounds to me more like a "tear rolled down her face" because she knew that the man standing next to her is not the one she wants, but she didn't had a chance since Toby "was putting her through hell".

And the irony is that he also wanted her but he never knew that she was feeling bad because "She Never Cried in front of" him.

How does that sounds?
