Lyrics
Don't cry me a river - don't tell me how to feel
Since we've been together, it's been the real deal
But, I know out love is true
Keeps us together when we're a little blue
Can't see the reasons today
But, more loves on the way
What are we gonna do?
What are we gonna do?

Don't cry me a river - don't tell me how to feel
Since we've been together, it's been the real deal
But, I know out love is true
That keeps us gonin' when we're a little blue
Can't see the reasons today
But, more loves on the way
What are we gonna do?
What are we gonna do?

Don't cry me a river - don't tell me what to do
Can't see the reasons for half the things we do.
But, I know I love you
That keeps me goin' when we'e in a stew.
Can't see the reasons today - but that's OK.
What are we gonna do?
What are we gonna do?

Now that we're here - I'll shed that tear
If it will make us whole
Ya, I know I'm dry, but I'll give it a try
Just for you
That's what I'm gonna do!

Don't cry me a river - don't tell me how to feel
Since we've been together, it's been the real deal
But, I know our love is true
That keeps us goin' when we're a little blue
There's a reason we feel this way
We juat can't see it today
What are we gonna do?
What are we gonna do?
There's a reason we feel this way
But, there's love on the way
What are we gonna do?
What are we gonna do?
Description
Short Song Description:
I wrote this song as a response to Cry Me a River which today we can truly see as a co-depended relationship.
Story Behind the Song:
This is the response/antidote to the famous song Cry Me a River - which makes a problem in a relationship into good vs. bad. My song tells a more accurate story for most couples - love is hard and not clear in black & white terms.
