All Cried Out

Album: Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam with Full Force (1985)
Charted: 8
  • All alone on a Sunday morning
    Outside I see the rain is falling
    Inside I'm slowly dying
    But the rain will hide my crying

    And you, don't you know my tears will burn the pillow
    Set this place on fire 'cause I'm tired of your lies
    All I needed was a simple "Hello"
    But the traffic was so noisy that you could not hear my cry

    Ah, I gave you my love in vain
    My body never knew such pleasure
    My heart never knew such pain
    And you, you leave me so confused
    Now I'm all cried out over you

    Oh, you. All over you, oooh
    Never wanted to see things you way
    I had to go astray, oh, why was I such a fool?
    Now I see that the grass is greener [why oh why]
    Is it too late for me to find my way home,
    How could I be so wrong? [Leavin' me all alone]

    Don't you know the heart will cause an inferno
    Romance up in flames, why should I take the blame
    You were the one who left me neglected [I'm so sorry]
    Apology not accepted, add me to the broken hearts you collected

    Ah, I gave you all of me [gave me all of you]
    How was I to know you would weaken so easily
    Ah, I don't what to do
    I'm all cried out [I'm all] over you [I'm cried out too]

    Ah, I gave you my love in vain
    My body never knew such pleasure
    My heart never knew such pain
    And you [I left you so confused, now I'm all cried out]
