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

    Women is deeply inlove with her man. But as time goes on, suddenly the man is getting marridge with another lady, so this women cannot believe, until she see with her naked eyes that she has lose her husband. She find it difficult to accept that he lose her man, all she does is just crying, she can't accept the fact that the man no longer belong to her, mmh really painfull song.
