"Cryin'" as written by and Steven/perry Tyler....
There was a time
When I was brokenhearted
Love wasn't much of a friend of mine
The tables have turned yeah
'Cause me and them ways have parted
That kinda love was the killin' kind
All I want is someone I can't resist
I know all I need to know
By the way I got kissed

I was cryin' when I met you
Now I'm tryin' to forget you
Your love is sweet misery
I was cryin' just to get you
Now I'm dryin' 'cause I let you
Do what you do down on me

Now there's not even breathing room
Between pleasure and pain
Yeah you cry when we're makin' love
Must be one and the same

It's down on me
Yeah, I got to tell you one thing
It's been on my mind, girl I gotta say
We're partners in crime
You got that certain something
What you do to me takes my breath away
Now the word out on the street
Is the devil's in your kiss
If our love goes up in flames
That's a fire I can't resist

I was cryin' when I met you
Now I'm tryin' to forget you
Your love is sweet misery
I was cryin' just to get you
Now I'm dyin' 'cause I let you
Do what you do to me

'Cause what you got inside
Ain't where your love should stay
Yeah, our love, sweet love, ain't love
'Til you give your heart away

I was cryin' when I met you
Now I'm tryin' to forget you
Your love is sweet misery
I was cryin' just to get you
Now I'm dyin' just to let you
Do what you do, what you do down on me
Baby, baby, baby

I was cryin' when I met you
Now I'm tryin' to forget you
Your love is sweet misery
I was cryin' when I met you
Now I'm dyin' 'cause I let you
Do what you do down to, down to, down to
I was cryin' when I met you
Now I'm tryin' to forget you
Your love is sweet misery

    General CommentI think this song is about one of those relationships that you can't live with or without. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

    General CommentThis song really rocks. It's one of those songs that can be played all the time and doesn't get old. I think the song is about a relationship that seemed great at first but then turned a lot worse. It's something I think a lot of people can actually relate to.

    General Commentthsi song makes me cry everytime i hear it. im not a sappy person either. it just reminds me of my parents marriage. its off and on again and it is just recycled. but it would be sung by a woman instead. my mom met my dad after my real father died. and he just pulls her around like she is a bag on manure sometimes.

    General CommentThis is a really great song. It has a really cool sound and i love it. I think it has to do with a relationship that turned into something bad. Even though the broke up, he can't get her out of his mind.
