"All Cried Out" as written by and Alison/jolley Moyet....
You took your time to come back this time
The grass has grown under your feet
In your absence I changed my mind
And someone else is sitting in your seat

I know that I said that there'd be no-one else
I know that I said I'd be true
But baby, I burned Cupid's arrow
And here's the short and narrow
I've nothing left to offer you

All cried out
You took a whole lot of loving for
a handful of nothing
All cried out
It's hard to give you something when
You're pushing and shoving me around

So don't look surprised there was no disguise
You know where I stood from the start
So stop, look around you
You're right back where I found you
Take back your cold and empty heart

All cried out
You took a whole lot of loving for
a handful of nothing
All cried out
It's hard to give you something when
You're pushing and shoving me around

You go your way
I'll go mine
I won't stay around here
Don't you waste my time

All cried out

    General CommentThis is a great, angry song for a woman who's been messed around by a guy and is now standing up for herself.

    Alison's so underrated. Her Alf album is surprisingly genius and her voice is amazing!
