Cry Me Out Lyrics - Pixie Lott



Review The Song (0)


I got your emails
You just don't get females now, do you?
What's in my heart
Is not in your head, anyway

Mate, you're too late
And you weren't worth the wait, now were you?
It's out of my hands
Since you blew your last chance when you played me

You'll have to cry me out
You'll have to cry me out
The tears that will fall mean nothing at all
It's time to get over yourself

Baby, you ain't all that
Baby, there's no way back
You can keep talkin'
But baby, I'm walkin' away

When I found out
You messed me about, I was broken
Back then I believed you
Now I don't need ya no more

The pic on your phone
Proves you weren't alone, she was with you, yeah
Now I couldn't care about who, what or where
We're through

You'll have to cry me out
You'll have to cry me out
The tears that will fall mean nothing at all
It's time to get over yourself

Baby, you ain't all that
Baby, there's no way back
You can keep talkin'
But baby, I'm walkin' away

Gonna have to cry me out
Gonna have to cry me out
Boy, there ain't no doubt
Gonna have to cry me out

Won't hurt a little bit
Boy, better get used to it
You can keep talkin'
But baby, I'm walkin' away

You'll have to cry me out
You'll have to cry me out
The tears that will fall mean nothing at all
It's time to get over yourself

'Cause baby you ain't all that
Baby, there's no way back
You can keep talkin'
Baby, I'm walkin' away

You'll have to cry me out
You'll have to cry me out

"Cry Me Out" is a song by English recording artist Pixie Lott from her debut album, Turn It Up (2009). Written by Lott, Mads Hauge, Phil Thornalley and Colin Campsie, and produced by Hauge and Thornalley, the song was released digitally in the United Kingdom on 22 November 2009 as the album's third single, being Lott's first ballad single. The singer explained that she made this particular single choice because she wanted to do something more classy, mature and emotional, as well as to bring about more success for her debut album.

The song is a slow-paced traditional soul ballad that has a combination of a soft piano melody and light drum beats as its backing to Lott's vocals. Similar to her previous two number-one singles, "Mama Do (Uh Oh, Uh Oh)" and "Boys and Girls", Lott has again teamed up with Mads Hauge and Phil Thornalley for this song. A new contributor was Colin Campsie who has been credited as the song's fourth co-writer.

Lott explained the song to BBC News:

I always prefer to write songs about emotional situations and heartbreak [...] because I like getting into the character. When we were writing "Cry Me Out", I said, 'I feel like singing about something sad but, obviously, still being strong'. So the guy has to cry to get over me, instead of the other way around.
—Pixie Lott, BBC News

Lott also told Digital Spy that the song's opening lyric "I got your e-mails, you just don't get females" was her favourite line on the Turn It Up album.

"Cry Me Out" received positive reviews from music critics. BBC Music's Paul Lester called the song "a superb ballad, as affecting as it is accomplished" and described its opening line as "witty and wise, a master class in how to put contemporary language to the service of a sublime melody." Digital Spy reviewer David Balls viewed to the song as "a sultry, soulful affair that warms the cockles like a cup of cocoa on a cold winter's night", adding that "Lott's vocals have a rich and smoky tone beyond her years." Jack Foley wrote for IndieLondon that the song "taps into the clever songwriting tendencies her PR insists she has with some cheeky lyrics and a keen sense of beat and melody." The LINC Online referred to the track as "a decidedly retro-sounding gem of tune heading more in the direction of the epic ballad than her previous singles may suggest", whilst Daily Star's Sarah-Louise James summarized it as "a retro-tinged stomper."
