Crying

I was alright for a while
I could smile for a while
Then I saw you last night
You held my hand so tight
When you stopped to say "hello"
You wished me well
You couldn't tell
That I've been crying over you
Crying over you

Then, you said, "so long"
And left me standing all alone, alone, and
Crying, crying, crying, crying
It's hard to understand
That a touch of your hand
Can start me crying

I thought that I was over you
But it's true, so true
I love you even more than I did before
But darling, what can I do?
For you don't love me
And I'll always be
Crying over you
Crying over you
Yes, now you're gone
And from this moment on
I'll be crying, crying, crying, crying,
And crying, crying over you




songwriter: Roy Orbison and Jim Melson

performed by: k.d.lang and Roy Orbison

date released: 1961 by Roy Orbison


Katherine Dawn Lang was born in Edmonton, Alberta, in 1961. Her family moved to the rural town of Consort, Alberta, where her father was a drugstore owner. He left the family when lang was twelve, and her mother remarried with the principal of a school in Consort.

After lang graduated from high school, she attended Red Deer College and the country singer, Patsy Cline, became her muse. Singing and performing at country and western venues with her newly adoped name, k.d.lang, she received some very critical reviews which prompted her to win at 1985 Juno Award for Most Promising Female Vocalist. Since her early recognition, she has gone on to win seven more Juno Awards. In 1986, she was wooed to Nashville, Tennessee, to record album, "Angel with a Lariat" with an American producer.

U.S. audiences began paying attention to k.d.lang while she was touring with the great Roy Orbison. In 1989, Orbison chose her to sing their now famous duet, "Crying".

In addition to her many Junos, our Albertan won four Grammys out of the five nominations she has received in her life.

An activist for gay rights causes and HIV/AIDS care and research, k.d.lang has recently begun to support Tibetan human rights issues. At the 2008 Beijing Olympics torch relay, lang joined the pro-Tibet protesters.
