"Cry" as written by Adam Clayton, Dave Evans, Paul David Hewson and Larry Mullen....
Somebody cry, somebody cry
Somebody cry
Somebody's high, somebody's high
Somebody's high
Don't you look back, don't you look back

Somebody cry, somebody cry
Somebody cry
I can't say why, I'm waiting

Boy, stupid boy
Don't sit at the table until you're able to
Toy, broken toy
You shout and shout till you're inside out

If you don't know
Electric Co.
If you don't know
Electric Co.
Alright

Red, running red
You play for real, take your feel
Hold your head
You don't shout, you're spoon fed

Till you don't know
Electric Co.
Till you don't know
Electric Co.

Break it up
I love the crowd
Lift me up

If you don't know
Electric Co.
If you don't know
Electric Co.
If you don't know
Electric Co.
If you don't know
Electric Co.

    General CommentI believe this one is usually followed by The electric co. I thought it was one song.

    General CommentHmmmmm, the lyrics are different to this on the Vertigo DVD, and it sounds much like "is that all?", which is on October.

    General CommentTechnically not on any studio album, U2 did record Is That All? for October, which is based on The Cry's guitar lick.
