Creative Brief

Needs vocals - I have a melody line for the lyrics below but you can feel free to start from scratch with your own lyrics and melody.

Guitar Lead sections:

2:00 - 2:16  Between first chorus and second verse lead
3:28 - 4:00  Main solo


feel free to sprinkle throughout (but probably better to do that after vocals - so, probably never. haha)

So, a little background on this song is needed.  A guitar player friend of mine, Matt Silva, (we were in a band together long ago) came up with that cool riff at 0:40 and I sort of built the rest of the song it.  Later on another guitar player friend of mine, Eric Keathley, (same band, different time) collaborated on the mellow intro piece but I changed it up a little bit since then.

Why I Cry For You
copyright 1994

In the light of the morning
In the darkness of night
Why won't you receive me
Oh why won't you even try

All I ever wanted was to love you
But you make it so damn hard
Girl you make it so damn hard

CHORUS
Open your heart
And learn to love again
Open your eyes to see me
And see why I cry...

Why I cry for you

In the heat of passion
Or in the coldness all alone
Why won't you believe me
Cuz girl, my heart, you own

All I ever wanted was to love you
But you make it so damn hard
Girl you make it so damn hard

CHORUS
Open your heart
And learn to love again
Open your eyes to see me
And see why I cry... for you... in my heart...

Why I cry for you

SOLO

All I ever wanted was to love you
But you make it so damn hard
Girl you make it so damn hard

CHORUS x2
Open your heart
And learn to love again
Open your eyes to see me
And see why I cry... 

Open your heart
And learn to love again
Open your eyes to see me
And see why I cry... 

Why I cry for you
