about

"Cry" is a song written & performed by Ian Guerin. It produced by his longtime collaborator Producer/Singer/Songwriter Azhmir Vangort. It was recorded, mixed & produced at Vangort Soundworks by Azhmir Vangort during the spring break of 2015.

With beats, cords & pianos reminiscent of the fine production of Jim Jam & Terry Lewis, lyrically the song explores heartbreak & the downfalls of love & relationships, while it "contemporaizes" traditional R&B.

As of 2019, "Cry" has won 3 BEAT 100 Awards (including Silver Song Award for Best Written Original & Silver Video Award for Best Production Values In a Video) & an Akademia Award for Best R&B/Soul Song of the Year. "Cry" is available worldwide & its video is available on Ian's Youtube channel Ian Guerin VEVO.

lyrics

I always knew
If I lost you I’d die
& I’m loosing you now
So I’m so terrified
(I’m so terrified)

Some say I’m a fool
For standing for you
But how can I not?
If I once said I would, be there for you
(Be there for you)

It’s a beautiful Sunday morning
& I wanna take you out to lunch
But I call on your phone
& I go to your home
& you’re nowhere to be found
Where are you now?

Cause my feelings haven’t changed since you walked through that door (cry, cry)
& the moments that we shared are still there in my heart (cry, cry)
I miss wrapping you in my arms (cry, cry)
But I cannot look back so I cry

Cause it hurts to fall in love with a person who won’t (cry, cry)
& it hurts me even more that you don’t even know (cry, cry)
Every time I heard your voice I was falling in love (cry, cry)
& I cried
I cried deep inside

They say big boys don’t cry
They say big girls survive
Forget those stereotypes
The day you left I died
You were the strings of my guitar
& the key to my heart
So forgive me if I ask
If I text you would you reply?

It’s been four beautiful Sundays (Where are you now?)
I’ve been meaning to take you to lunch (Where are you now?)
But I call on your phone & you’re not alone (Where are you now?)
It hurts to know (Where are you now?)
I’m now on my own (Baby girl I miss you)

Cause my feelings haven’t changed since you walked through that door (cry, cry)
& the moments that we shared are still there in my heart (cry, cry)
I miss wrapping you in my arms (cry, cry)
But I cannot look back so I cry

Cause it hurts to fall in love with a person who won’t (cry, cry)
& it hurts me even more that you don’t even know (cry, cry)
Every time I heard your voice I was falling in love (cry, cry)
& I cried
I cried deep inside

So I’mma take this dream of me & you babe
& I’mma throw it out cause I’m just sick babe
Of your lies & your cheating
Your deceit & your scheming
Your false love & daydreaming
Being the friend that just listens
Baby girl if you’re leaving
Just be sure that you’re leaving
Cause I won’t take you back
You’ll be out of my life
No more Mr. nice guy
For you

Come on!

Cause it hurts to fall in love with a person who won’t
& it hurts me even more that you don’t even know
Every time I heard your voice I was falling in love & I cried

Cause my feelings haven’t changed since you walked through that door
& the moments that we shared are still here in my heart
I miss wrapping you in my arms, but I cannot look back so I cry

My home isn’t home since you walked through that door
My heart doesn’t know who he is anymore
Should I just give you up?
Stop my cry
Let you go

(Cry, cry)
Hey!
(Cry, cry)
Hey!
(Cry, cry)
Hey!
