Verse:
I remember other days, How I used to weep,
Over things you said to me, I couldn't even sleep.
You forgot your promises, Ev'ry single vow.
All you did was laugh at me, But things are diffrent now.
 
Chorus:
I cried for you,
Now it's your turn to cry over me.
Ev'ry road has a turning,
That's one thing you're learning.
I cried for you,
What a fool I used to be.
Now I found two eyes just a little bit bluer,
I found a heart just a little bit truer.
I cried for you,
Now it's your turn to cry over me.
