About Cry

"Angels Cry" is a song by American singer and songwriter Mariah Carey from her twelfth studio album, Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel (2009). It was written and produced by Carey, Tricky Stewart and James "Big Jim" Wright, with additional songwriting from Crystal Johnson. On the album's track listing, "Angels Cry" is preceded by a one-minute, four second prelude called "Angel (The Prelude)", which consists of Carey performing purely in her whistle register. The prelude then leads into "Angels Cry", a song about trying to fix a broken relationship because true love only happens once. Carey released "Angels Cry" as a remix single featuring Ne-Yo in January 2010 for a proposed Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel remix album called Angels Advocate, which was ultimately shelved.

Cry, cry, cry, cry, cry
Cry, cry, cry

Maybe I didn't leave much between us that day
And maybe I shouldn't have told you "I loved you"
Played the game, and now I understand
Wish I could have you back
And kiss you soft and feel your hands on me

'Til we both break down
'Til we both break down
'Til we both break down
And cry

Cry, cry, cry, cry
Cry, cry, cry, cry
Tell me

And maybe I didn't give you your space back then
And maybe I should have just held out a little bit longer
But I was seduced by you, and I didn't know enough
Truly too enchanted to disregard the words you said to make me yours
I need to hold you 'til we break

'Til we both break down (break down)
'Til we both break down
I should have known that you were trying to love me ('til we both break down)
Oh, 'til we both break down and cry

Oh my love, imprudently, I left every cell in me
So naked, somewhere at the core of you
Bless our souls

I just need you 'til we both ('til we both break down)
I'm just saying
'Til we both break down
Might as well tell the truth about the matter ('til we both break down)
Oh, yes I
Guess it's selfish of me 
To just expect that I'm entitled to have you ('til we both break down)
But tonight all I wanna do is just hold you ('til we both break down)
We both break down and cry

Cry, cry, cry, cry
Oh, we both break down and cry (cry, cry, cry, cry)

'Til we both break down and cry
