Cry


Cry me a river,
The downpour of oceans,
The glittering waters,
Silent bleeding of your eyes.

Cry me a river,
Let the waters tell,
The story the mouth can't say,
Pour out the grief.

Cry me a river,
Streams of pains,
Seas of unhappiness,
Tales of my eyes.

Cry me a river,
Songs of infants,
Weapons of women,
Downfall of men.

Cry me a river,
Let the soul speak,
Empty the hurt,
Release the soul.

Cry me a river,
Sins the songs,
Of your broken lyrics,
And its sad note.

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
