Come cry me a river and this is what I'll do

If you cry me a river then I'll play, yes I'll play

play my violin for you.

Will it flow to some forgotten place

covered by fog and the morning dew

If you should ask me then I'll play, yes I'll play

play a tune of lost love for you.

Will it flow to a lake or out to sea

or will it stop right here between you and me

All you have to do is say play, and yes I'll play

play the tune of your defeat.

You tell me that you've lost her love

and she never will return

No, you can't get to where she is

because that bridge's burned.

You can't swim to your treasure

because you've lost your way

No, you can't get to where she is

but she cried for you to stay.

Come cry me a river and this is what I'll do

If you cry me a river then I'll play, yes I'll play

play my violin for you.

Will it flow to some forgotten place

covered by fog and the morning dew

If you should ask me then I'll play, yes I'll play

play a tune of lost love for you.

Will it flow to a lake or out to sea

or will it stop right here between you and me

All you have to do is say play, and yes I'll play

play the tune of your defeat.

You tell me that you've lost her love

and she never will return

No, you can't get to where she is

because that bridge's burned.

You can't swim to your treasure

because you've lost your way

No, you can't get to where she is

and it haunts you to this day.

So I'll play, yes I'll play...
