Eric Benet – Lamentation lyrics
I saw my brother
He did me wrong
He put a gun up to my face
My money's gone
I said please don't be that way
I'm just trying to make it through the day
He said you better not come 'round me before too long

1 Whoa ooh
Love is crying (whoa oh)
Love is dying (whoa oh)
Love is crying (whoa oh)

I saw my sister she did me wrong
I had a smile up on my face
But hers were so cold
I said sister please don't go
I'm just trying to say hello
She said you better not come 'round me
Before too long and I said

Repeat 1
Repeat 1

Can you hear the cries from heaven up above
Looking down upon this world of dying love
Open up your heart, hurry don't delay
Before the chance to save the world is gone away

I asked my father, "Lord, what's wrong"
Through his tears I heard him say
Child be strong, 'cause the world I'm trying to save
Done turned me away
But they better come 'round my way before too long

Repeat 1
Repeat 1
Repeat 1
Repeat 1

Love is dying, oh (Oh)
Hear the cries of love (Oh)
Can't ya hear the dying love girl (Oh)
Lover can ya year it yeah yeah (Oh)
