Benet, Eric - Sometimes I Cry Lyrics




[Verse 1]
Two years since you walked away from me
Since all of our scattered dreams
Were just thrown away
I'm finally gettin back to what I used to be
Share my pain with my family
Think I'm on my way

I can sleep at night,
I don't reach for you when I wake up
But it's taken some time
I can live my life
Without praying that we could make up
I'm movin on, I'm feeling strong inside

[Chorus 1]
But sometimes I cry, babe
When I'm all alone
With this heart of mine
Sometimes I cry, babe
Although you've been gone
For a long, long time

[Verse 2]
Heard you're moving in with someone new
I hope all your dreams come true
And you'll both be happy, yeah

Been long enough for me to take a look around
I've met a girl, we've been hangin out
She's been good for me

But when we're makin love
She don't take me there like you used to
And it hurts when I lie (when I lie baby)
Help me understand how to push you out,
Forget you and let you go,
Cuz Lord knows I've tried, yeah

[Chorus 2]
But sometimes I cry, babe
Been at all that hurtin
For a long, long time (yes, I have babe)
Sometimes I cry, babe
Ain't nothin workin
For this pain of mine

[Bridge]
I'll just have to fake it
Until I can make it
There's a smile on my face, yeah
But I'm broken inside

  61. Emery Taylor

    I forgot how it feels to love someone this much. I’ve been let down so much that I can’t even begin to let myself fall this deep anymore, I almost wish I could experience this type of pain again to let me know I’m still alive. Now I just want Sex, and once I get it I have no more use for the woman and it’s sad. I wasn’t always like this...I remember being in love. I miss it.
