"So You Can Cry" as written by Shaffer Smith and Reginald D. Perry....
So it's over
He's with someone else and you know her
And you just can get any lower
You sit in the dark alone
And won't answer your phone
Well I'm sorry. I want to attend your pity party
I rather go have calamari
And maybe a drink
And yes I think
You should come with me

Life is long
There will be pain but life goes on
With everyday a brand new song
But if you rather stay at home
Let me do you a favor

I'll ask the sun to shine away from you today so you can cry
(If that's what you want)
I'll ask the clouds to bring the rain for you today so you can cry
(If that's what you want alright)
Oh If that's what you want alright

I'ma Lover
And the pain of a heart from another
Can be difficult to recover
Yes this I know
But difficult isn't impossible
And you shiver (Shiver)
He was your warmth
You Cry Lips Quiver
Well honey go on cry me a river
You wanna be down (you wanna be down)
Fine let me help you out
How bout

I'll ask the sun to shine away from you today so you can cry
(If that's what you want)
I'll ask the clouds to bring the rain for you today so you can cry
(If that's what you want alright)
Oh If that's what you want alright

And your tears won't bring him back
I know you wish that it did
But it just don't work like that
Oh I know that healings takes time
Hey even your heart has a pace
Oh but how much time are you gonna take
Hmm too much will be a mistake

I'll ask the sun to shine away from you today so you can cry
(If that's what you want)
I'll ask the clouds to bring the rain for you today so you can cry
(If that's what you want alright)
Oh If that's what you want alright

    My InterpretationI think this song talks about a guy (Ne-Yo) who really likes this girl ("And, yes, I think
    You should come with me"), but she is still not over her ex.
    I think that he feels he's nothing to cry about and that she needs to move on, and if she wants to cry, he'd give her something to cry about (sun, rain).

    He's also getting tired of waiting for her ("But, how much time are you gonna take? Too much would be a mistake")

    This was my interpretation of the song.
