"Cry a River" as written by Myles Kennedy, Mark Tremonti, Scott Phillips and Brian Marshall....
Turn off the lights and close your eyes and tell me what you see
I’ll bet it doesn’t have a goddamn thing to do with me
There’s nothing left to say
I finally know the truth about you

You come alive you played it well I was the last to know
My premonition was the only thing that let it show
I gave you everything
But I could never pacify you

So go on and cry me a river
Don’t say this will haunt you forever
It never did it never will

Tear it away I wanna see just what you really are
And rip the veil that hides that wretched soul you call a heart
This is my agony
But I return to stay beside you

So go on and cry me a river
Don’t say this will haunt you forever
It never did it never will

Vows are not meant to be broken
You never cared for a moment
You never did you never will

Now I know the truth about you
All you need I will deny you

So go on and cry me a river
Don’t say this will haunt you forever
It never did it never will

All that you see you devour
The money the greed and the power
You always did you always will

Now I know the truth about you
All you need I will deny you
