"I Cry" as written by and Louise Ann/barlow Rhodes....
One day I met a precious soul
Who's words would touch my heart
His poetry resounded so
It tore my soul apart

But when I tried my thoughts to speak
Emotion made my mind go weak
And time stood still for years and years
And bathed him in my tears

[Chorus]
I cry, I cry
Tears of joy, tears of pain
I cry, I cry
Tears of love again and again

Some people turn to pills and things
To help them through the day
To take them up or down or just
To ease the blues away

But me I really want to feel
The ups and downs of life so real
And feel sad emotions reign
My tears flow just the same

[Chorus: x2]

Gonna burn so completely I leave no trace
For so many out there would laugh in my face
For wearing emotion so close to the skin
Condemn me they might if love's such a sin

[Chorus: x2]

    General Commenti love this song even though i'm not exactly sure what it means...at first listen i thought it was about being stuck trying to get over a love. when you don't want to lose the memories or the hope, but you are in so much pain that it's best to just forget so the pain will go away, hence her decision to "gonna burn so completely..." not sure know that i listen to it again though...

    lyrics are a little wrong...
    -"it tore my soul apart"
    -"i cried, i cried" = first verse (first and third lines)
    -"to help them through the day"
    -"i cry, i cry" = for the rest of all verses and lines
    -"gonna burn so completely i leave no trace/ though so many out there would laugh in my face/ for wearing emotion so close to the skin/ condemn me they might if to love's such a sin"

    great song.

    General Commentyeah, there are a few errors in the lyrics. Nonetheless I love this song, her voice contrasts so well with the music it seems more like they're harmonizing. I really think it's about a lover or maybe not even that, perhaps a love, a passion for something that's just so bitter and so sweet and so hard to let go.

    My OpinionI'm not a religious person, but this song seems slightly religious to me.

    'One day I met a precious soul
    Who's words had touched my heart
    His poetry resounded so
    It tone my soul apart '

    The words or god maybe? Meant so much it blew away what she believed in? Then something bad happend and he didn't help something deeply hurt her.. and she lost her faith? he didn't help and she didn't turn to anything, she started to believe in her own emotions ... she didn't need anyone to help her through...

    Maybe i'm totally wrong thinking about it.. ha!
