I saw my brother
He did me wrong
He put a gun up to my face
My money's gone

I said, "Please don't be that way
I'm just trying to make it through the day"
He said, "You better not come 'round
Me before too long"

Whoa ooh
Love is crying
(Whoa oh)
Love is dying
(Whoa oh)
Love is crying
(Whoa oh)

I saw my sister, she did me wrong
I had a smile upon my face
But hers were so cold

I said, "Sister, please don't go
I'm just trying to say hello"
She said, "You better not come 'round me
Before too long and I said"

Whoa ooh
Love is crying
(Whoa oh)
Love is dying
(Whoa oh)
Love is crying
(Whoa oh)

Can you hear the cries from heaven up above?
Looking down upon this world of dying love
Open up your heart, hurry don't delay
Before the chance to save the world is gone away

I asked my Father, "Lord, what's wrong"
Through His tears I heard Him say
"Child, be strong"

'Cause the world I'm trying to save
Done turned me away
But they better come 'round
My way before too long

Whoa ooh
Love is crying
(Whoa oh)
Love is dying
(Whoa oh)
Love is crying
(Whoa oh)
