It's been a mystery and still they try to see
Why something good can hurt so bad
Caught on a one way street the taste of bittersweet
Love will survive somehow, some way

CHORUS:
One love feeds the fire
One heart burns desire
I wonder who's crying now
Two hearts born to run
Who'll be the lonely one
I wonder who's crying now

So many stormy nights, so many wrongs or rights
Neither could change their headstrong ways
And in a lovers rage they tore another page
The fightin is worth the love they save...

Repeat chorus

Only so many tears you can cry
Til the heartache is over
And now you can say your love
Will never die

Repeat chorus

    Not the old version. it's "Who's crying now, who's crying now, whose heart is broken from breaking each vow, you had your way, now I must say, I'm glad that you're sorry now."

    I was writing a song. Pieces of it have been coming together for 20 years or so. The melody is the last part I always write- that is probably backwards- but stuff comes however it comes - anyway- the melody that came is so close to your song- I feel I might need to ask your permission to use it fir fear of getting into trouble. I will post it on my Musician's Index page by the end of August 2011.

    Anyway, I understand the lyrics to be from an abusive relationship. She was in love with him, but he was trying to control her. She was happy to be with him, but wanted to still have an opinion about things. Anything that he thought that she didn't agree with, he called stupid and punished her with cold distance, icy glares, restraint or even physical force- What could he do? She pushed him to it. Neither could change their headstrong ways- She wanted to just "BE" he said you can "be" as long as it is what "I" say that is. She refused to agree to those terms- they fought with all their might- then there was an accident... her heartache is now over- he can say his love for her will never die from prison, but Who' s Crying Now?
