"I Will Make U Cry" as written by Gerald Eaton, Brian West and Nelly Furtado....
Chuva, chuvinha, vem, vem, vem ca, rapaz
Chuva, chuvinha, vem, vem ca, rapaz

This is not political it's just that I, I
Demand attention when I walk into the room
Ba dum, ba dum (hey), ba dum, ba dum
And it's not that I can't play ball hard
It's just that I don't want to
And the more I think about this pressure, love, I don't want you
And I can't have you and that's what hurts the most
I can't enjoy these things I boast
I throw my heart out, keep my head up, I cannot fuck up 'cause

I, I got what you need, boy (baby, I do)
But I will only cause you pain, yeah (I promise that)
I, I got what you need, boy (baby, I do)
But I will only bring on the rain

So I prefer to run this road rough around the edges
Good for something, but too good to give it to you
You run your own course at your own pace, but I just got impatient
See, I wanted to explore
Forsake you, forsook you, abate you, dissipate you
So turn fate around, I believed that I was free of you (not)
I still believe in those days on benches
At sunset and the waves in July, or was it March?
We weathered weathers and storms real and imagined
Such fragile tenderness, you are truly blessed I stress this
As I blow you this kiss as I blow it in the wind, mwah

I, I got what you need, boy (baby, I do)
But I will only cause you pain, yeah (I promise that)
I, I got what you need, boy (baby, I do)
But I will only bring on the rain
(Cut the music)

Chuva, chuvinha, vem, vem, vem ca, rapaz
Gonna make you cry so damn hard
You're gonna curse your drawers and wish you weren't a boy
Gonna make you cry so damn hard
You're gonna curse your drawers and wish you weren't a boy, yeah
I will make you cry
I will make you cry
Boo-hoo

They say time is made of memories
Well I remembered and I'm tired
This is not political
It's just that I remember the fire
Babe, you left me with my head held high and
I feigned to be more than I was, didn't I
I thought I could do without sugar love
But this chocolate has turned into sweet bubble gum
Candy is sweet but honey is sweeter
It tastes like the real thing but candy is much much cheaper (cheaper)

I, I got what you need, boy (baby, I do)
But I will only cause you pain, yeah (I promise that)
I (rain a-fallin' down, rain a-fallin' down, ha, ha, ha, ha)
I got what you need, boy (rain a-fallin' down, rain a-fallin' down)
Baby, I do (ha, ha, ha, ha)
But I will only (rain a-fallin' down, rain a-fallin' down)
Bring on the rain (ha, ha, ha, ha)
Ah, crying, you'll be crying, I'm sorry I made you cry
I didn't mean to, let me wipe those tears away
Wipe those tears away, don't cry, baby
It's only rain

    General Commenti reckon this song's supposed to be ironic, she's saying that she wants him and can't have him so she's being stubborn and is saying that she's glad he rejected her 'cos she'll just end up making him cry anyway, and this song is a list of excuses. i thought she was just tryin' to be funny!! she must like the -reject before being rejected idea- a lot of people do! mad song but, i love it..

    General CommentI used to love trying to keep up with her 'rap' parts when I was younger haha! It was one of my favourite songs from the album. I probably purchased it when I was 11 or 12. I'm 24 now and I still like listening to it every now and again. Good old early 00's music :D

    General CommentShe likes to do things at her own pace and her own way and she needs her attention. Shes got what he needs.... but she knows that in the end... she'll just end up hurting him. "Im sorry I made you cry.... I didnt mean to..."

    General CommentShe can't be tied down to anyone, and yet when people try to and fail, she's blamed for being a heart-breaker or something. This song is like a disclaimer for that.

    MemoryOnce I have the misfortune of seeing a fight between a couple of friends of mine and at the end the man was crying like a child.

    This is the sad destiny of losers, if you don’t have money and if your girl is on a superior level of you she will make you cry. Definitely, you can’t have sex with her.
