You were my sun
You were my earth
But you didn't know all the ways I loved you, No
So you took a chance
And made other plans
But I bet you didn't think that they would come crashing down, No.

You don't have to say, what you did,
I already know, I found out from him,
Now there's just no chance, For you and me, There'll never be
And don't it make you sad about it.

You told me you loved me
Why did you leave me all alone
Now you tell me you need me
When you call me on the phone
But girl I refuse, You must have me confused
With some other guy
Bridges got burned, Now it's your turn to cry.

Cry me a river
Cry me a river girl
Cry me a river
Cry me a river girl (Yeah, Yeah).

I know that they say
That some things are better left unsaid
It wasn't like you only talked to him and you know it
(Don't act like you don't know it)
All of these things people told me
Keep messin' with my head
(Messin' with my head)
You should've picked honesty
Then you may not have blown it (Yeah....)

You don't have to say, What you did,
(Don't have to say, What you did)
I already know, I found out from him
(I already know, Uh)
Now there's just no chance, For you and me, There'll never be
(No chance, You and me)
And don't it make you sad about it.

You told me you loved me
Why did you leave me all alone
(All alone)
Now you tell me you need me
When you call me on the phone
(When you call me on the phone)
But girl I refuse, You must have me confused
With some other guy
(I'm not like them baby)
Bridges were burned, And now it's your turn
(It's your turn)
To cry.

Cry me a river
(Go on and just)
Cry me a river girl
(Go on and just)
Cry me a river
(Baby go on and just)
Cry me a river girl.
Yea, yea, yea.

Oh (Oh)....
The damage is done
So I guess I be leavin'
Oh (Oh)....
The damage is done
So I guess I be leavin'
Oh(Oh)....
The damage is done
So I guess I be leavin'
Oh (Oh)....
The damage is done
So I guess I be.... Leavin'

You don't have to say, What you did,
(Don't have to say, What you did)
I already know, I found out from him
(I already know, Uh)
Now there's just no chance, For you and me, There'll never be
(No chance, You and me)
And don't it make you sad about it.

Cry me a river
(Go on and just)
Cry me a river girl
(Baby go on and just)
Cry me a river
(You can go on and just)
Cry me a river girl (Yeah, Yeah).

Cry me a river (Baby go on and just)
Cry me a river girl
(Go on and just)
Cry me a river
(Cause I've already cried)
Cry me a river girl
(Don't wanna cry no more, Yeah Yeah).

Cry me a river
Cry me a river, Oh
Cry me a river, Oh
Cry me a river, Oh.

Cry me a river, Oh
(Cry me, Cry me)
Cry me a river, Oh
(Cry me, Cry me)
Cry me a river, Oh
(Cry me, Cry me)
Cry me a river, Oh
(Cry me, Cry me).

Cry me a river, Oh
(Cry me, Cry me)
Cry me a river, Oh
(Cry me, Cry me)
Cry me a river Oh
(Cry me, Cry me).
