"Cry" as written by and Robert S. Kelly....
If I had just one tear running down your cheek
Maybe I could cope maybe I'd get some sleep
If I had just one moment at your expense
Maybe all my misery would be well spent

Could you cry a little? Lie just a little?
Pretend that you're feeling a little more pain?
I gave now I'm wanting something in return
So cry just a little for me

If your love could be caged, honey I would hold the key
And conceal it underneath the pile of lies you handed me
And you'd hunt and those lies - they'd be all you'd ever find
And that'd be all you'd have to know for me to be fine

And you'd cry a little
You'd die just a little
And baby I would feel just a little less pain
I gave now I'm wanting something in return
So cry just a little for me

Give it up baby
A whimper would be fine
Some kind of clue that
You're doing time
Some kind of heartache
Honey, give it a try
I don't want pity
I just want what is mine

Could you cry a little? Lie just a little?
Pretend that you're feeling a little more pain?
I gave now I'm wanting something in return
So cry just a little for me
(Could you cry?)
Could you cry a little for me?
Cry a little for me

    General CommentI love this song. It's so true too. It's like, after you break up with someone or they break up with you, somehow it's a strange comfort to know that they're feeling pain too. That way you know that you really did mean something to them. And if they don't seem like it affected them at all, it hurts so much because you start thinking 'maybe they didn't care', 'maybe they never really loved me', 'i'm not as good as him/her'. I think we all are just a little sadistic when it comes to things like this. The other person feeling pain just SOMEHOW in us, makes the pain tolerable. Shared sorrow if half sorrow.

    General CommentI love both Faith and Angie's version. Each has something special that makes it all that different. A beautiful song.

    General Commenti love this song. it fits perfectly with how i feel about someone who just ended it with me. even though we weren't together long, there is along of long and at time painful history
