Like a tear that never falls
It's like a story left untold, oh, oh, oh, ah
Like a pain within one's heart, oh, yeah, yeah, yeah
Where do I find the words to start?

Cry me a river that paths the way
Set my people free, oh, oh, ah
Cry me a river that paths the way
To set my people free, oh, oh, ah

I turn it over in my mind, oh, oh, oh, oh
So much to do, so little time, oh, oh, oh, ah
I said their path lies in the truth, oh, yeah, yeah, yeah
What can we do to help the youths?

Cry me a river that paths the way
Set my people free, oh, oh, ah
Cry me a river that paths the way
To set my people free, oh, oh, ah

Cry me a river that paths the way
Set my people free, oh, oh, ah
Cry me a river that paths the way
To set my people free, oh, oh, ah
Cry me a river

We have the ways, we have the means
To turn to reality this dream, oh, oh, oh, ah
We put our shoulders to the wheel, oh, yeah, yeah, yeah
This is a love we all can feel, oh, won't you?

Cry me a river that paths the way
Set my people free, oh, oh, ah
Cry me a river that paths the way
To set my people free, oh, oh, ah

Cry me a river that paths the way
Cry me a river that paths the way

Cry me a river
Cry me a river
Cry me a river
Cry me a river
