Journey – Who's Crying Now lyrics

It's been a mystery and still they try to see
Why something good can hurt so bad
Caught on a one way street the taste of bittersweet
Love will survive somehow, some way

One love feeds the fire
One heart burns desire
I wonder who's crying now
Two hearts born to run
Who'll be the lonely one
I wonder who's crying now

So many stormy nights, so many wrongs or rights
Neither could change their headstrong ways
And in a lovers rage they tore another page
The fightin is worth the love they save...

Repeat chorus

Only so many tears you can cry
Til the heartache is over
And now you can say your love
Will never die

Repeat chorus

    I see it in a different aspect, one the couple had a good relationship, but things got in the way obviously, stubborness ect. Well they were yet still together someone had cheated, and the person they cheated with, never thought the couple would get back together, and also was trying to put a bigger wedge between them but obviously their love was strong enough to pull through, and the outside person was left with a broken heart..

    I was writing a song. Pieces of it have been coming together for 20 years or so. The melody is the last part I always write- that is probably backwards- but stuff comes however it comes - anyway- the melody that came is so close to your song- I feel I might need to ask your permission to use it fir fear of getting into trouble. I will post it on my Musician's Index page by the end of August 2011.
    Anyway, I understand the lyrics to be from an abusive relationship. She was in love with him, but he was trying to control her. She was happy to be with him, but wanted to still have an opinion about things. Anything that he thought that she didn't agree with, he called stupid and punished her with cold distance, icy glares, restraint or even physical force- What could he do? She pushed him to it. Neither could change their headstrong ways- She wanted to just "BE" he said you can "BE" as long as it is what "I" say that is. She refused to agree to those terms- they fought with all their might- then there was an accident. Her heartache is now over- he can say his love for her will never die from prison, but Who' s Crying Now?
