"Cry" as written by and Allen Toussaint....
You've got me on a high
I'm falling through the sky
The summer's here so I
Could leave winter and fly
But what we gonna do?
You leave at half past two
We wasted time today
I guess it has to be that way

That I can make you cry
I can make you

Cry
Cry

You looked into my eyes
You came as a surprise
You washed me in the shower
It lasted for an hour

But what we gonna do?
You leave at half past two
We waste more time each day
And everything's OK
Except that

I can make you cry
I can make you

Cry
(But I really don't want to)
(All the trouble I've gone to)
Cry
(But you make it so easy)
(And it's driving me crazy)

Cry
(But I really don't want to)
(All the trouble I've gone to)
Cry
(But you make it so easy)
(And it's driving me crazy)

Do do do do do do do do
('Cause everything changed today)
Do do do do do do
(If you would let me stay)

Uh huh
Uh huh
Uh huh

Do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do

The summer's here again
(And I don't want to pretend)
And it would change but when?
(I just don't want it to end)

See'os I can make you cry
('Cause everything changed today)
I can make you...

Cry
(But I really don't want to)
(All the trouble I've gone to)
Cry
(But you make it so easy)
(And it's driving me crazy)

Cry
(But I really don't want to)
(All the trouble I've gone to)
Cry
(But you make it so easy)
(And it's driving me crazy)

Do do do do do do do do
('Cause everything changed today)
Do do do do do do

    General CommentIt's kind of wierd that no one has said anything about this song.... oh well, probably just means that its crap. It's kind of catchy though, i must admit. I just remeber this song, like 7 years ago, at this kids party, it was a sleepover, and we stayed up pretty much all night just mucking around. Any way, video hits came on or something, and this song was on it, and I think i might have been the only one awake, but i swear it nearly made me cry, and I have no idea why. I haven't heard it since then, so it's kind of wierd. It's pretty catchy and emotional, dunno what any one else thinks about it, because i doubt they've ever heard it.

    General CommentThis is an awesome song! One of the best pop/rock songs ever written imho.

    I think its about spending time, hanging out with someone and indeed falling for someone when their is no hope of a relationship or a future together.
