Harry Connick, Jr. – Sonny Cried lyrics

I cried all night for sonny
'til my eyes were dry
'til the oceans overflowed
And the red sea turned blue
I cried all night for sonny
I heard he was crying, too

I cried all night for sonny
We shook hands and said goodbye
His face was etched with sorrow
His heart without a hue
I cried all night for sonny
I heard he was crying, too

When you try and love two people
You can't love either one
'cause after a while you'll have to choose
Or else love self denial

I stayed all night with sonny
Like there'd never be another day
Go on and sleep 'til sunset
And I'll watch over you
I cried all night for sonny
I know he was crying, too
