Why I Cry and Why She Cries

Why write two versions of the same song?  Well, in this case, I wanted to expand the possibilities.  What if the person singing does not want the song to be about themselves?  Then it would get skipped as an option for a potential collaboration with a variety of musicians.  I do not know if this is a thing or not.  I do think it is a unique editing exercise, that may or may not apply to other songs.  I don’t think it can be done with all songs, but I would do this again if I had the right lyrics to work with.  I am satisfied with both versions of this song, and how they turned out.

If you want to see them without having to look too far, I am linking them both below.

Is this a thing?  Does it happen in songwriting courses?  I am curious to know if anyone else has successfully done this or wanted to.

Why I Cry

Why She Cries

Lyrics and Notes

Welcome to Lyrics and Notes .  This is a starting place.  I will link song lyric pages, each separately, so that they are easy to find and the page does not get too cluttered with all of my lyrics on one page. To the reader, they may be seen as poetry.  To me, they are all songs, and all of them were written with a melody in mind.  I hear them as I write them, so I cannot read them without the melody playing in my head.  All they need is someone to sing them.  Please contact me by e-mail if you are interested.
