"Cry" as written by and Frank Hannon Brian Wheat....
(Keith, Hannon, Wheat)

Any day at all, any time, any way it take me to make you mine
I would give it all, give it all and more
Give you more than you could ever want from me
If anything they say is true, you gotta have 'em, if you wanna sing the blues
'cause some nights, there ain't nothing I can do, but

Cry, cry an ocean
No use tryin' to hide what's slowly dying in me, what's slowly dying in me

Now I will confess, was no second guess
With all your love you left to me, it was a mess
Once there was a time, was no compromising
You [left so life can't do possess]

If anything they say is true, what goes around will be coming to you, I know
Some night, there'll be nothing you can do, but

Cry, cry an ocean
No use trying to hide what's slowly dying in me
Cry, do you feel that it's over
What you may fear is still alive, it's slowly dying in me

I cried, guess you're crying now
(I'm blind to the end, I cried...)
Tried to be everything I could, for you, from me, all I could be
Tried to be everything I could, for you, from me, all I could be
Tried, tried to be everywhere I could, for you, cried out my eyes for you

For you

[Solo]

Take no bad talk, I ain't a toy, I won't be somebody's boy
My heart ain't [chasin'] no game and if I do play, I'm takin' my time
Take no bad talk (I take no), take no bad talk (ah, hell no)
I won't be your boy, ain't gonna be a toy

If anything they say is true, anytime it should be coming for you

Cry, cry an ocean
No use trying to hide what's deep inside of me
You can cry, do you feel that it's over
Don't you come crying, no don't come crying, don't come crying to me!

    General Commentone of the most heartbreaking yet rocking songs ive ever heard. during the first two verses hes pissed that she wont love him and begs her to come back, during the breakdown he explains that he tried so hard to get this girl to love him but she still didnt take him back. in the third verse he finally wakes up and says **** you girl im no toy im no boy and i aint taken your shit no more, its ur turn to cry .

    General CommentI agree with Magicblue to an extent. I think the girl in the song has a lot of "issues" that she dumps on him ("With all your love you gave to me, it was a mess ...") "What's slowly dyin' in me," is his love for her adn the hope he tries to keep alive that they can make the thing work. He knows it's not going to get better, and isn't able to convince himself otherwise anymore. The slow, mournful part in the middle is him finally losing all hope, and realizing he's done all he can. Then, when it picks back up, he's getting mad at her for treating him as she has, and at himself for letting her, and finally telling her off, adn not to bring her BS around anymore and just leave him alone.
