The winter was coming
I could feel the chill setting in,
I reached out to your fire
But the amber glowed grown so dim

Like the crimson leaves falling
Last breath of a sunset sky
Ah the seasons were changing
Too late to save the garden
Too soon to see it die

Cry me a river
Promise me the sun
Everybody hurts
How does it feel to be the one
Cry me a river
Kiss love goodbye
And cry

(In a dream)
(I stood by the water)
(And you watched from the other side)
(And you could clearly see me callin' out)
(Ya tried to run and hide)
(Wouldn't look me in the eye)


And you left me standing by the water
A thousand bridges, one step away, away

Like the crimson leaves (falling)
(The last breath)

Cry me a river
Kiss love goodbye
And cry


And cry
