relation to lyrics
Relation to Lyrics


  • Shower & pool also amplifies the theme of river
  • “Cry me a river” Raining throughout; amplifies visual & audio of crying, rain & water
  • “Now it's your turn to cry” Hand gesture on face as tear, emphasis of audio in visual representation
“You were my sun

You were my earth”

Stating that she was his everything & was important to him until now

“Now you tell me you need me

When you call me, on the phone

Girl I refuse, you must have me confused, With some other guy”

Irony as he knew she cheated yet it seems that she wants him but he refuses to take her back; he tells her she must be confused as she is telling him this & not the other guy she cheated with

“Now it's your turn to cry”

Now it’s her time to cry like he perhaps did when he got betrayed by her cheating; he doesn’t want her back but she does


You were my sun

You were my earth

But you didn't know all the ways I loved you, no

So you took a chance

And made other plans

But I bet you didn't think that they would come crashing down, no


You don't have to say, what you did,

I already know, I found out from him

Now there's just no chance, for you and me, there'll never be

And don't it make you sad about it


You told me you loved me

Why did you leave me, all alone

Now you tell me you need me

When you call me, on the phone

Girl I refuse, you must have me confused

With some other guy

Your bridges were burned, and now it's your turn to cry,

Cry me a river (-er) (X4) (yeah, yeah)

I know that they say

That some things are better left unsaid

It wasn't like you only talked to him and you know it

(Don't act like you don't know it)

All of these things people told me

Keep messing with my head

(Messing with my head)

You should've picked honesty

Then you may not have blown it


[Pre-Chorus (with echo)]

[Chorus (with echo)]

[Timbaland] (X4)

Oh (Oh)

The damage is done

So I guess I be leaving

[Pre-Chorus (with echo)]


Cry me a river (Go on and just)

Cry me a river-er (Baby go on and just)

Cry me a river (You can go on and just)

Cry me a river-er (yeah, yeah)

Cry me a river (Cause I've already cried)

Cry me a river-er, yeah, yeah

(Ain't gonna cry no more, yeah-yeah)

Cry me a river (oh) (X4)

(X6)Cry me a river, oh

(Cry me, cry me)

“The damage is done

So I guess I be leaving”

Timbaland sings this bit as he has finished helping Justin with his deed to take revenge by sending & setting him up with a girl to cheat with

“You should’ve picked honestly, Then u may not have blown it”

She was untrue to him & has now blown her chances to be with him instead of choosing to do right towards him

“Now there's just no chance, for you and me, there'll never be

And don't it make you sad about it”

Stating that there will never be them (“you and me”) anymore . Also that she is going to be upset but he says this in an almost sarcastic manner towards her

“You don't have to say, what you did,

I already know, I found out from him”

She doesn’t need to explain herself because he already knew about her infidelity

“So you took a chance,

And made other plans”

Referring to her plans & choice to cheat on him with another guy

cry me a river
“Cry Me a River”
  • As well as being the song title, this quote is featured in lyrics & is effectively used repeatedly in the chorus. The phrase has the following meanings & uses:


  • Justin Timberlake uses this expression in his song towards Britney Spears who cheated on him but still wants him back despite. He knew about it & refuses to take her back. She is now upset & could “cry a river” for him, but Justin doesn’t want to hear about it as he believes he’s been through worse & perhaps he has already cried enough to fill a river when he found out about her cheating on him. It’s her fault that it has happened so he has no sympathy for her feelings anymore.
  • Crying so much that tears continuously stream down your face like a river
  • The tears cried could fill or form a river
  • The person being told has self pity & feels sorry for themselves but no one really cares or has sympathy for them
  • They can cry & moan all day long but the person saying it feels that they have been through worse
