Gore, Lesley - Cry Me A River Lyrics




Now you say you're lonely
You cried the whole night through
Well you can cry me a river
Cry me a river
I cried a river over you

Now you say you're sorry
For being so untrue
Well you can cry me a river
Cry me a river
I cried a river over you

You drove me, nearly drove me
Out of my head
While you never shed a tear

Remember, I remember
All that you said
Told me love was too plebeian
Told me you were through with me

And now you say you love me
Well, just to prove you do
Come on and cry me a river
Cry me a river

I cried a river over you
I cried a river over you
I cried a river over you
I cried a river over you

    Now you say you're lonely
    You cry the whole night through
    Well you can cry me a river
    Cry me a river, I cried a river over you
    And now you say you're sorry
    For bein' so untrue
    Well you can cry me a river
    Cry me a river, 'cause I cried a river over you
    You drove me nearly out of my head
    While you never shed a tear babe
    Remember, I remember all that you said
    You told me love was too plebeian
    You told me you were through with me
    And now you say you love me
    Well just to prove that you do
    Why don't you cry me a river
    Cry me a river, 'cause I cried a river over you, over you
    You say you loved me, but you lied
    Now you say you love me
    Well just to prove that you do
    Come on and cry me a river
    Oh cry me a river
    I cried a river over you
    I cried a river over you, I cried a river
    Now you can too, cry me a river
    Cry me a river
