A moment of steel a dry-eyed house
Did he say goodbye to you or did you kick him out?
I know you're not afraid to go alone
But this was a marriage of spirit, flesh, and bone

Now what you gonna do when the planet shifts?
What you gonna do, gonna slit your wrists?
And bleed all over the milky way
The stars in your eyes look red today

Cry love, cry love
The tears of an angel, the tears of a dove
Spilling all over your heart from above
Cry love, cry love

The trust of a woman in his hand
But he was a little boy, not a man
You loved him stronger than he could feel
Yeah he was wrapped up in himself like an orange peel

Now what you gonna do with the booze and the blush?
What you gonna do when there's no rush?
You cop a little misery at the corner store
Well one day that train of pain won't stop no more

Cry love, cry love
The tears of an angel, the tears of a dove
Spilling all over your heart from above
Cry love, cry love, cry love

Throwing up ashes on the floor
If this is a lesson in love, well what's it for?
The heart will remember the burning fire
The next time you feel the flame of desire

Cry love, cry love
The tears of an angel, the tears of a dove
Spilling all over your heart from above
Cry love, cry love

Cry love, cry love
The tears of an angel, the tears of a dove
Spilling all over your heart from above
Cry love, cry love, cry love

Cry love, cry love, cry love
Cry love, cry love, cry love
