I Cried For You Lyrics - Katie Melua

Review The Song (17)



You're beautiful so silently
It lies beneath a shade of blue
It struck me so violently
When I looked at you

But others pass, they never pause
To feel that magic in your hand
To me you're like a wild rose
They never understand why

I cried for you
When the sky cried for you
And when you went
I became a hopeless drifter
But this life was not for you
Though I learned from you
That beauty need only be a whisper

I'll cross the sea for a different world
sponsored links
With your treasure, a secret for me to hold

In many years they may forget
This love of ours or that we met
They may not know
How much you meant to me

I cried for you
And the sky cried for you
And when you went
I became a hopeless drifter
But this life was not for you
Though I learned from you
That beauty need only be a whisper

Without you now I see
How fragile the world can be
And I know you've gone away
But in my heart you'll always stay

I cried for you
When the sky cried for you
And when you went
I became a hopeless drifter
But this life was not for you
Though I learned from you
That beauty need only be a whisper
That beauty need only be a whisper

Touching | Reviewer: Tate austin | 1/19/12

My father passed away when I was 12yrs old, am now 31yrs old and this song somehow keeps me intouch with him. He said goodbye but i was too young to understand. LOVE YOU DAD. And thanks to katie



Losing the one you love | Reviewer: hopelessdrifter | 9/23/11

This song speaks to me in such a raw way. It explains everything I feel. I found true love last year. I've fallen for people before but it never felt so pure. He hung himself last month, and I cried and cried for him. Just like in the song. Every verse and line of this song rings true for me. This life wasn't for him. The pain in katies voice when she sings this reflects the pain i feel so honestly. I just want to sing this at the top of my lungs until it all goes away. This is true music.

For My Father Joseph Delihlazo Mkololo | Reviewer: Theo Mkololo | 7/9/11

I lost my father when I was 7,28 days after my birthday.it is now almost 16 years since his passing Ind still I find it hard to move on. I never talk about him because it pains me so much. Katie with this so voices the mute with in me. She expresses what I can not. Every time I mis him I listen to the song and that how I keep his memory alive. Thank you Katie

Ps: to those who are fortunate to still have their fathers, cherish him.If you are in a bad space with him make right before its to late.



Bernard my Husband | Reviewer: Linda | 5/15/11

I wanted to find a song for Bernards funeral and we used to listen to Katie together when we went out for drives in the car when he was ill. I picked this song and its going to be in the reflection part of the funeral and it will be me talking to Bernard saying my last goodbyes to him.I loved him so much.xx



Singing to the fallen Angels. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/1/10

People need to read more. All katies sons are in relation to the fallen starts. The fallen angels. Read The book of Enoch and understand all her song including the flood are in relation to the punishment of the the fallen starts and the their prison.



Luna | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/6/09

Very moving song with deep lyrics, i love katie's voice, because it is soo sweet and deep. Very typical for Georgian women. Melody actually reminds me of Georgian romances which are sooo sweet and melancholic. Well done Katie, I am proud to be one of your kin.



Georgia | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/25/09

This lost friend towards whom she sings touches me so profoundly that I begin to believe that the friend is Christ, who was not made for this world but for the sky who cried for him. Without him, Katie explains how she is but a hopeless drifter, crying also for him, the Savior who teaches about love and beauty. The way she confesses that people might not understand how much he meant to her is an understanding of many who invite Jesus as a friend into their lives, knowing that he is not there in person--which is a sad thing sometimes--but there in our hearts to stay. Even more, in the video of the song, the face of the man which masks Katie's looks like Jesus, and when her face is unmasked, His face reappears, showing how Christ is within the heart of everyone--we just have to let Him in.



makes you realize... | Reviewer: amanda | 4/12/09

this song makes you realize how precious and fragile (as she says in the song) life and love is.

my boyfriend and I have quite a complicated relationship and its hard for us to see each other often. He also gets sick very often and he has a heart condition. this song makes me cherish the moments we have together because i know if i ever lost him, this is how i would feel.



touched | Reviewer: sueno | 12/5/07

Usually death is a subject we don't like "touching". But she sings about it so gracefully, that it moves you and touches you and fascinates you. It's not the idea of death but the feeling of love for the one who's lost that makes you smile and then shed some tears while listening to this song. It's so nice saying goodbye in such a way.



is the song about Kurt Cobain? | Reviewer: daria | 11/20/07

when i have heard the song for the first time, what hit me was the main theme, in which i found Katie's feeling about Kurt Cobain,his talent and death as he didnt fit into this world.
Can sb please tell me if i may be right?

About the song i cried for you by Katie Melua | Reviewer: Sophiee | 8/13/07

Shes an amazing singer and the songs she sings just make you want to think about everything in your life! This song is bery moving and i have many times cried to it! Well done Katie Melua. x



exquisite | Reviewer: rachel | 7/17/07

I just happened to run across this song one day while looking around on youtube and I immediately fell in love. The words are so passionate and emotional while the melody and music underneath deliver a gorgeous message. The chords and subtle violin input make the song completely and utterly exquisite. I am in love with this song and listen to it almost everyday.



Fantastic | Reviewer: Victor | 6/28/07

We had a very close friend who tragically died a couple of years ago. This song could have been written for her. She was such a loving person, and really not ment for this world. Katies song really moves me and reminds me of out lost friend.
Thanks for being you, both of you.
