(+LYRICS+TRANSLATION+MEANING) MUSIC REVIEW: ALL I DO IS CRY BY KIM PETRAS  “AWWW! KIM PETRAS GO REALLY CRY TIRE O!”

@ogefashblog

What Kim Petras sang about in the song “All I do is cry” is what happens to ladies that get themselves emotionally attached to guys. An emotionally attached lady always feels that the guy with her is the “true one person” meant for her and no one else. So because she is already too attached, it becomes very difficult to detach herself from a guy when she is heartbroken. It also happens to guys anway, but I feel the ladies are more on the receiving end.

But then, I totally love the song! But Kim, it is really a waste of time crying for a guy whose mind is made up to quit a relationship. Kim, ndi (those) guys are heart breakers, so don’t let them make you cry for too long. Ehichapu anya mmiri gi (wipe your tears) else you go cry tire gan ni…#Winks

 

Kindly take a gander at the lyrics below

LYRICS TO THE SONG “ALL I DO IS CRY’ BY KIM PETRAS

VERSE 1

I need you more than air. I see you everywhere
Nobody else compares. I don’t go anywhere

Before I close my eyes. I think of all the lies
Can’t go to sleep at night. I’ve tried a million times

CHORUS

All I do is cry about you. I don’t wanna die without you.
Thought that you were the exception. Took a fatal blow to my heart
I just want for you to need me. You’re just gonna keep me bleeding
I don’t wanna die without you
All I do is cry about you

POST CHORUS

Wish I could forget you, like I never met you
Said you wanna break, then you broke my heart
You left me with nothing, I feel like I’m drowning
You just let me down and I don’t know why
Wish that I could say that you’re dead to me
What’s it gonna take to feel alive again?
I feel like I’m breaking, I keep medicating
I just can’t believe that it’s over now

BRIDGE

All I do is cry about you. All I do is cry
You’re always in my head. Feels like I’m living dead
Remember when you said that this would never end?

Before I close my eyes. I think of all the lies
Can’t go to sleep at night. I’ve tried a million times

CHORUS

All I do is cry about you. I don’t wanna die without you
Thought that you were the exception. Took a fatal blow to my heart
I just want for you to need me. You’re just gonna keep me bleeding
I don’t wanna die without you. All I do is cry about you
(All I do is cry about you)

POST CHORUS

Wish I could forget you, like I never met you
Said you wanna break, then you broke my heart
You left me with nothing, I feel like I’m drowning
You just let me down and I don’t know why
Wish that I could say that you’re dead to me
What’s it gonna take to feel alive again?
I feel like I’m breaking, I keep medicating
I just can’t believe that it’s over now

OUTRO

All I do is cry about you
I don’t wanna die without you
I just want for you to need me
You’re just gonna keep me bleeding
I don’t wanna die without you
All I do is cry about you

DURATION: 3 MINUTES 20 SECONDS

THE REVIEW

Lyrically, the song comes in one verse “I need you more than air” The only predominant thing in the song is the chorus and prechorus. The song is meaningful as it talks about an heartbroken lady who is unable to move on with her life as well as forget the guy that had broken her heart.

The song arrangement: Verse 1- Chorus- Post Chorus- Bridge- Chorus- Post Chorus- Outro

BREAKDOWN OF THE SONG

In the Verse 1  “ I need you more than air” Kim petras talks about how important a guy is to her and how much she wants to be with him even though the guy in question is not interested in her again. She says no one measures up to him.  Even though she tries to do without him, she finds herself yearning for him and having sleepless night because of him. She still wants him back despite the fact that he lied to her and left her afterwards

In the Chorus “All I do is cry about you” the artist emphasizes how much she wants to spend eternity with her lover even though he broke her heart. This she said in the line “I don’t wanna die without you”. She is still attached to him and is yet to let go of the memories about him. Kim wishes the guy would yearn for her like she years for him, but that is not happening and it is indeed killing her.

In the Post Chorus “Wish I could forget you, like I never met you” we can tell that the artiste is trying to forget about the guy and move on with her life, but she is not able to achieve that.  Ever since he ended the relationship with her, her life has been suffocating and empty. She is hoping to get herself back and be lively again so she wont be susceptible anymore and keep getting bruised.

In the Bridge “ All I do is cry about you…You are always in my head” Kim makes us know that the only she is only preoccupied with the memories of her ex-boyfriend and the how he had broken her heart. This of course always leaves her in tears. She says even though she is still moving around it is like she is dead. Her ex-boyfriend had made a vow to her that he would never break her heart, but he did not keep the vow.  She also lets us know that she is suffering from insomnia because she is heartbroken.
