Lyfe Jennings – Cry lyrics

[1st Verse:]
I done had money
And I done been broke
I done been talked about something awful
Done been lied on by so many folks
I done even been depressed at times
And didn't wanna cry cause my pride was too strong
But over the years I thought it over
And after struggling for so long and still holding on
I figured, can't be nothing all that wrong with crying
If anybody says that they're that strong they're lying
See crying is like taking your soul to the Laundromat
It's like the feeling that you get
When you see your Grand-mama smile
Or the heavens open up and blessings rain down
Go on child and cry
Go on and cry, cry, cry
Go on and cry, cry, cry
We can cry, we can cry together

[2nd Verse:]
See I done been a player
And I done been played
I done went for some of the oldest tricks
From some of the coldest chicks God done ever made But ya'll don't hear me
Said I done even had a venereal disease
And didn't wanna go to the clinic, all that attention embarrassing me
But over the years I've learned to understand
That I don't really give a damn what nobody say, I'm a man
And we cry (cry)
We can cry, we can cry, we can cry together

Talkin' bout wo wo wo yea yea yea
They say a man ain't supposed to cry
But I know, know, know
Fasho' sho', sho'
That even men go through problems somtimes


I'ma a man
And we cry
Cry [repeats 3x]
