"Cryin'" is a song by Aerosmith which is about a a rollercoaster 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 the first Aerosmith video to feature actress Alicia Silverstone, and it launched her career. She starred in Aerosmith's next 2 videos as well: "Amazing" and "Crazy", and has been in many movies since, including "Clueless", "The Crush", and "Blast From The Past". Silverstone had met the band only once. Their scenes were shot separately.

Josh Holloway, who plays Sawyer on the show Lost, also appears in the music video. He plays a pickpocket who steals Alicia Silverstone's bag only to be caught and beaten up by her. An extra chorus was added to the video so they could get more scenes in. For the video, the group was filmed at the Central Congregational Church in Fall River, Massachusetts. That's where Lizzie Borden, who was acquitted for murdering her parents in 1892, used to worship. It appears in Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock in the setlist of Austin Tejas.

LyricsEdit

There was a time
When I was so broken hearted
Love wasn't much
Of a friend of mine

The tables have turned, yeah
Uh 'cause me and them ways have parted
That kind of love
Was the killin' kind

So listen
All I want
Is someone I can't resist
I know all I need to know by the way that I got kissed

I was cryin' when I met you
Now I'm tryin' to forget you
Love is sweet misery

I was cryin' just to get you
Now I'm dyin' 'cause I let you
Do what you do down on me, yeah!

Now there's not even breathin' 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 somethin'
What you give 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, it's a fire I can't resist

I was cryin' when I men you
Not 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, yeah!

'Cause what you get inside
Ain't where your love should stay
Yeah, our love, sweet love, ain't love
'Til you give your heart away
Yeah that's right

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' to let you
Do what you do what you do down to
Naughty, baby, baby, baby
Rah fah fah full fah fow!

I was cryin' when I met you
Now I'm tryin' to forget you
Your love is sweet misery yeah

I was cryin' when I met you
Now I'm dyin' 'cause I let you
Do what you do down to
Down to, baby, down to, down to

I was cryin' when I met you
Now I'm dyin' 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 me
