Vixen - Cryin'


Vixen - Cryin' - About the song


Vixen is the self-titled debut by the American all-female glam metal band Vixen. It was released in 1988 in the United States and Europe, and featured the hit singles "Edge of a Broken Heart" and "Cryin'".


Richard Marx, one of the late 1980s' most successful recording artists, was heavily involved in Vixen's early career, co-producing the album and writing one of their biggest hits "Edge of a Broken Heart".


The three songs co-written by Jeff Paris, "Cryin'", "One Night Alone" and the bonus track "Charmed Life" were previously released on Paris's 1987 solo album Wired Up. "Give It Away" is credited to Paris's real name Geoffrey Leib and was included on his previous album Race to Paradise from 1986.


Vixen was featured at No. 43 in Rolling Stone magazine's list of 50 Greatest Hair Metal Albums of All Time. The album was certified Gold by the RIAA on February 6, 1989.


Cryin' - Lyrics


One look and I saw what I wanted to see, you know that you

Wrapped my heart around your finger so easily, yeah


With your centerfold body going through the moves

Why did I keep wasting the truth for you, tonight


I won't be cryin', cryin', when I think about you, 'cos I opened my eyes

And I won't be cryin', cryin', 'cos those days are gone, gone


Someone twisted you, so you gave it to me, yeah you gave it to me good

You're a nightmare everywhere, disguised as a dream


Well I got lost, wandering through the darkness in your maze of lies

Your trapdoor-way right into my insides, but tonight


I won't be cryin', cryin', when I think about you, 'cos I opened my eyes

And I won't be cryin', cryin'


The tears are falling to the floor, but you won't catch me cryin' anymore
