"Look at You Now (You're Crying)" as written by John Andrew Tirro, Derek George and Bryan S. White....
It's the ending of her day
And there's no-one to say goodnight to
And the simple English rain
Just breaks her heart again

She looks at her hands
And expects raindrops and pearls
All for her love was had
But she's the MTV girl
Her parka's full of pictures of the Bay Bridge and you
Just seeing it all through

Try to find a middle name
Pay me in pennies after I'm broken
She promises to make a last try
So she listens to this song
Like the rain on my footsteps
She cycles to work, remembers where she had been
And what they were supposed to mean there too then

The loneliness of her life is a spell that can't be broken
The thin ice of her heart is still without a sever
The caterpillar trail of ink and blood
The paper-wristed soldiers who were lost in the flood
The distance between him and you
It's just seeing it all through

Look at you now, you're crying
Look at you now, you're crying, girl
Look at you now, you're crying
Look at you now, you're crying, girl

She's the quick of the thick
She thought she could say
Of how it is to cry when there's no-one to see it
And you don't even know if you will see him again
Or if he's waiting there for me

Look at you now, you're crying
Look at you now, you're crying, girl
Look at you now, you're crying
Look at you now, you're crying, girl
