Beyoncé – All I Could Do Was Cry lyrics

I heard
Church bells ring
I heard
A choir singing
I saw my love
Walk down
The aisle
On her finger
He placed a ring

Oooh, oh

I saw them
Holding hands
She was
Standing there
Wwith my man
I heard
Them promise
Til death do
Us part
Each word
Was a pain
In my heart

All I could do
Was cry
All I could do
Was cry
I was
Losing the man
That I love
And all
I could do
Was cry

And now
The wedding
Is over
Rice, rice
Has been
Thrown over
Their heads
For them life
Has just begun
But mine
Is ending


All I could do
Was cry
All I could do
Was cry
I was losing
The man
That I love
And all
I could do
Was cry

    I think this meaning you know its A women inlove so deeply she was sure that she was going 2 be the 1 standing there with him A women with A beautiful voice but she just wasn't heard when it came 2 that day she would cry because the 1 she loved was getting married the one man she thought was going 2 be her's broke her heart this was A man she knew and loved and didn't give up but that certain ring and those vows let her know it was all over all she could do was cry wow this is A great song hey it also tells us how deep we can be inlove then when its time 4 the truth you can't face it because you love the person 2 much 2 believe it I think that's what the song means.
