"Who's Crying Now" as written by Jonathan Cain and Steve Perry....
It's been a mystery and still they try to see
Why somethin' good can hurt so bad
Caught on a one-way street, the taste of bittersweet
Love will survive somehow, some way
One love feeds the fire
One heart burns desire
I wonder, who's cryin' now
Two hearts born to run
Who'll be the lonely one
I wonder, who's cryin' now

So many stormy nights, so many wrongs or rights
Neither could change their headstrong ways
And in a lover's rage, they tore another page
The fightin' is worth the love they save...


Only so many tears you can cry
Til the heartache is over
And now you can say your love
Will never die

    General Commentobviously about a relationship where two lovers are fighting and who is hurting now......but even though they love eachother neither one will give in to their argument

    General CommentMakes me cry...but I think its about the fighting and they seperate for the night and someone is crying cause the other person hurt them too much.

    General CommentPossibly the best Journet track. The vocals and the guitar are perfect to fit the mood of a strained love. The question in the title speaks of the reality of a long-term relationship. Someone is usually found to be crying. This is the price of commitment, but as the song suggests, it is worth it in the end.

    General Commentit seems to be about 2 lovers who parted long ago and one got over it quickly but the other never got over it at all. great song and superb ending guitar solo but i never paid close attention to the lyrics. they are actually quite stunningly sad and powerful.
