1. Cry, Cry, Cry
Guitar - Ibanez Artcore
Lyrics are pretty straightforward, a lonely lover awaits his girl's return, lying in bed under the light of the pale white moon. But the twist is, she's not on some foreign voyage, she's only gone out to the shops, for a packet of crisps and a bottle of pop!
I recorded the guitar and vocals together at first, sadly the guitar went out of tune towards the end, and the vocals were all round shoddy, so I had to re-record another layer of vocals over the top. Unfortunately I couldn't then erase the original vocals, so if you hear some wailing in the background, I blame the lonely lover's cat!

lyrics

I'm gonna cry, cry, cry, cry
If my baby don't come back to me soon
Here I lie, lie, lie, lie
By the light of the pale white moon
All the people pass me by
They can't see the tears in my eye
And I'm wondering why, oh why
Does my baby not return?

Said I'm gonna cry, cry, cry, cry
If my baby don't come back to me soon
Here I lie, lie, lie, lie
By the light of the pale white moon
All the tears I cry
They are falling now from my eye
And I'm wondering why, oh why
Does my baby not return?

Said I'm gonna cry, cry, cry, cry
If my baby don't come back to me soon
Here I lie, lie, lie, lie
By the light of the pale white moon
All the tears I cry
They are falling now from my eye
And I'm wondering why, oh why
Does my baby not return?

She's only gone an hour ago, Richie
She's headed out to the shops
She's gone to get a packet of crisps
And a bottle of pop!

I'm gonna cry, cry, cry, cry
All the tears gonna fall from my eyes
And I'm gonna wonder why, oh why
Will my baby come back to me soon?
