Cry
Jon Batiste Lyrics


Who do you love?
Who you gonna love?
Who do you love when push comes to shove?
How does it feel?
How's it gonna feel?
How does it feel when it's getting too real?

Why sometimes does it seem like all I wanna do
All I wanna do is cry, cry, cry
Cry, cry, cry
Cry, cry, cry
Cry, cry, cry

What can you say?
What you gonna say
To make it okay?
And who's gonna pay?
Who will you fight?
How you gonna fight?
Who will you fight to make it alright?

Why sometimes does it feel like all I wanna do
All I wanna do is cry, cry, cry
Cry, cry, cry
Cry, cry, cry
Cry, cry, cry

Floods keep on rising
Tears keep on falling down
Oh, why?
Cry

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

For the loss of the innocence
For the struggle of the immigrants
For the struggle of the immigrants
For the wrongful imprisonment (cry, cry, waoh)

Cry, cry
Cry, cry
Cry, cry, cry

Are you, this song listeners, aware what the singer really cries for?
For the loss of the innocence
For the struggle of the immigrants
For the wrongful imprisonment

What can you say?
What you gonna say
To make it okay?
And who's gonna pay?
Who will you fight?
How you gonna fight?
Who will you fight to make it alright?

So deep.

It feels like this song came out in the 70's/80's and everyone has known it since. Instant classic for me.

leviatan

yes, but isn't this also exactly the problem with many of Jon Batiste's songs? a certain lack of subjectivity and originality? Not worth a Grammy inflation.

Rosanne Mazza

And how old is he then 😂 if he made this song. Gee one can't even go onto YouTube and not find fighting ...
shame...

Rosanne Mazza

It's a first time for me and I'm glad I "found" him before I died.

When I heard Jon's NPR tiny desk, my two favorite songs were "Cry" and "I need you." Glad to see both became singles!
