"Cry" as written by David Gavurin and Harriet Wheeler....
And I'm standing on a platform
Now I'm staring from a train
And all the trees roll back beside but I'm so oblivious
To the dark to the light
It's all the same

You gave me so much and now it's of the earth
And it makes me cry
(It makes me cry, it makes me cry)
It can make me cry

And you're standing here beside me
In a picture in a frame
And your voice could never fade it's so familiar
Things you said in my head
Every day

You gave me so much
And now it's of the earth
And it makes me cry
(It makes me cry, it makes me cry)
And it can make me cry

You're with me so much
Though you're never with me anymore

And it makes me cry
(It makes me cry, it makes me cry)
It can make me cry
(Oh it makes me cry, it makes me cry)
(Yeah it makes me cry, it can make me cry)

    General CommentOh man, this is so beautiful. Obviously about the grief of a lost love. Everything around reminds her of the one she loved.

    That line "But I'm so oblivious to the dark to the light, it's all the same" shows how much it affects her. When one's miserable, he/she loses sight of beauty and happiness of the things around.

    Favorite part: "You're with me so much, tough you're never with me anymore." Sure, he's there, in her mind, but that's just a memory. A terribly haunting memory of what no longer exists.

    General CommentIn my opinion, this is just a perfect, perfect song. That guitar line after the word "cry," the strings, Harriet's beautiful, haunting voice, the way it all tumbles down at the end to a subdued, single guitar chord -- this song is a thing of beauty.

    Psychedelia's favorite part is also my favorite part -- it's a simple but effective line, and the melody of it serves as the perfect lead-up to the chorus.

    I mourn the fact that the Sundays evidently stopped making music for good after this album. But what a finale!!

    My OpinionClearly a song about loss, but this verse makes me believe that it's the loss of a parent or sibling, rather than a lover:

    "And you're standing here beside me
    In a picture in a frame
    And your voice could never fade it's so familiar
    Things you said in my head
    Every day"

    A fantastic song that will make you cry if you listen hard enough.
