Brian Mcknight – One Last Cry lyrics

My shattered dreams and broken heart
Are mending on the shelf
I saw you holding hands, standing close to someone else
Now I sit all alone wishing all my feeling was gone
I gave my best to you, nothing for me to do
But have one last cry

One last cry, before I leave it all behind
I've gotta put you outta my mind this time
Stop living a lie
I guess I'm down to my last cry


I was here, you were there
Guess we never could agree
While the sun shines on you
I need some love to bring on me
Still I sit all alone, wishing all my feeling was gone
Gotta get over you, nothing for me to do
But have one last cry

One last cry, before I leave it all behind
I've gotta put you outta my mind this time
Stop living a lie
I know I gotta be strong
Cause round me life goes on and on and on
And on.....

I'm gonna dry my eyes
Right after I had my
One last cry

One last cry, before I leave it all behind
I've gotta put you outta my mind for the very last time
Been living a lie
I guess I'm down
I guess I'm down
I guess I'm down...
To my last cry...

    This song really strikes me also. I think this is the best song for me. After I have done recently. I'm a big stupid! Choose the gurl that I thought she loves even though I already do have my own partner and a son. I've lost everything. I made a decision that I think is the best way but it became the worst way! I tried to please her many times. But it's already to late. So what I'm goin' to do now is to be strong. For my life goes on. I need it for the sake of my son. And for the gurl that I chose. I'm very sori. I messed up, I ruined your life I'm very sori. Hope you'll be fine.

    Its about a soul who's hurting so deep where it takes time to heal. A soul that really so in love,. But somewhere along the way the heart was broken,. But inspite of all those pain and broken heart this lonely souls believe that, no mater what happens she will get over the pain. Someway, somehow the feelings will eventually heals. And those hurt will bring her back being strong again.

    This song reminds me of the guy whom I considered part of life, but its already gone. Its never easy to see him turning back but I have to take the pain and cry all the way home coz I know it will never be the same. I hope in times, he will be happy as he call my name once again. I used to smile when I told people that he were mine, but now, I can't even smile and say his name at the same time, as I think of him. Leaving you isn't the hardest part, knowing I once have you is what breaks my heart. I will never forget the time we shared to each other. I'll always remember how much you cared, now it's over, its time for me to move on.

    I dedicate this song to the last person I have ever love the most. It keeps me cryin and hurtin when I start reading the lyrics of this song. It hurted me so bad. So much pain to ease and I have to get over this. Though its hard! I need to set aside everything that happened to us, so I could rid of the pain deep inside of me. I wanted to end up crying but the pain and love for this person lingers on me. I'm praying and hoping that everythhing happens for a good a reason.
