Aerosmith - Cryin' - Live 2004




This song is about a a roller coaster relationship that seemed great at first but then turned a lot worse. It can also be seen as a metaphor for Steven Tyler's drug use.


This was written after Aerosmith's record company rejected most of the songs they had composed for the Get A Grip album. They were signed to Geffen Records, whose executive John Kalodner was assigned to the band. It was his job to break the bad news that the songs they had written sucked, but he felt it was more important to look after their business interests than to form a friendship.


The song hit the sweet spot, as did two other songs written for the album with Kalodner's outside writers: "Crazy" and "Livin' On The Edge."




Lyrics



There was a time

When I was brokenhearted

Love wasn't much of a friend of mine

The tables have turned yeah

'Cause me and them ways have parted

That kinda love was the killin' kind

All I want is someone I can't resist

I know all I need to know

By the way I got kissed


I was cryin' when I met you

Now I'm tryin' to forget you

Your love is sweet misery

I was cryin' just to get you

Now I'm dryin' 'cause I let you

Do what you do down on me


Now there's not even breathing room

Between pleasure and pain

Yeah you cry when we're makin' love

Must be one and the same


It's down on me

Yeah, I got to tell you one thing

It's been on my mind, girl I gotta say

We're partners in crime

You got that certain something

What you do to me takes my breath away

Now the word out on the street

Is the devil's in your kiss

If our love goes up in flames

That's a fire I can't resist


I was cryin' when I met you

Now I'm tryin' to forget you

Your love is sweet misery

I was cryin' just to get you

Now I'm dyin' 'cause I let you

Do what you do to me


'Cause what you got inside

Ain't where your love should stay

Yeah, our love, sweet love, ain't love

'Til you give your heart away


I was cryin' when I met you

Now I'm tryin' to forget you

Your love is sweet misery

I was cryin' just to get you

Now I'm dyin' just to let you

Do what you do, what you do down on me

Baby, baby, baby


I was cryin' when I met you

Now I'm tryin' to forget you

Your love is sweet misery

I was cryin' when I met you

Now I'm dyin' 'cause I let you

Do what you do down to, down to, down to

I was cryin' when I met you

Now I'm tryin' to forget you

Your love is sweet misery
