"Crying" as written by Vic Pepe, Jack Ponti, Dorothee Pesch and E. G. Daily....
I was all right for a while, I could smile for a while
But when I saw you last night, you held my hand so tight
When you stopped to say "Hello"
And though you wished me well, you couldn't tell

That I'd been crying over you, crying over you
Then you said "so long" left me standing all alone
Alone and crying, crying, crying crying
It's hard to understand that the touch of your hand
Can start me crying

I thought that I was over you but it's tru-ue, so true
I love you even more than I did before but darling what can I do
For you don't love me and I'll always be

Crying over you, crying over you
Yes, now you're gone and from this moment on
I'll be crying, crying, crying, crying
Yeah crying, crying, over you

    General CommentNevermind the great lyrics, this song has one of the greatest vocal deliveries of any song ever. Better than American Pie or even Vincent in my opinion, (though they have better lyrics and instrumentals). But the piercing intensity of Don's voice in this song is just remarkable. He's one of the most underappreciated geniuses, and I'm somebody that likes the Big Guys like Bob Dylan and David Bowie, so I'm not just saying that all the popular or critically-acclaimed musicians suck and that only the lesser-knowns are worth listening to-- but Don McLean is. Most just know him for American Pie. Just check out how many have commented on that song as opposed to all the others. But seriously, after Dylan, Don McLean might be the most poetic lyricist and expressive vocalist to come out of 20th century folk-rock music.
