Men are often raised to hold in their emotions as they are told that crying isn’t manly. Usher wanted to change that narrative with his new single “I Cry” as he shares how he’s been affected by the recent events. On Instagram, Usher uploaded the cover art, illustrated by his son Naviyd, along with a message about why he felt compelled to produce the song.

“This song was inspired by wanting to teach my sons that it is ok for a man to feel emotions deeply and to cry. Like many men, I was raised to believe that we have to be ‘tough’ and not show our vulnerability, which I don’t want to teach them,” Usher wrote. The singer also stated that while he was under quarantine and watching the death of George Floyd, he “became very connected to the wider universal feeling of hopelessness.”

“I became very depressed thinking about all the sons who have lost their fathers to police brutality, social injustice and violence; the daughters and mothers too. So I returned to this song and realized it was intended for this time, so I finished it and here it is.” Stream “I Cry” by Usher and share your thoughts on this one.

Lyrics

[Intro]
Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

[Verse 1]
I can’t keep it together
I usually don’t show my emotions
But it ain’t getting better
‘Cause you can’t be blind with eyes wide open

[Pre-Chorus]
And I see struggle, I see pain
I see only the mess we made
I see things that I can’t change
And it hurts my heart to say

[Chorus]
I cry
For the sons without fathers
And the pain that their mothers
Hold deep inside
And I’ll fight
For the future we’re making
We can change if we face it
‘Cause these tears won’t dry
So I cry

[Post-Chorus]
Ooh (I cry)
Ooh

[Verse 2]
When I look in the mirror
Do I see someone that cares for others?
Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
Do I love myself more than my sisters (Sisters)
And brothers? (Brothers)
I don’t know, ooh

[Pre-Chorus]
Now, I’ve seen struggles, I’ve seen pain
I’ve seen beyond the mess we made
I’ve seen things that I cannot change
And it hurts my heart to say

[Chorus]
Oh, I cry
For the sons without fathers
And the pain that their mothers
Hold deep inside
So I’ll fight
For the future we’re making
It’ll change if we face it
‘Cause these tears won’t dry
So I cry

[Post-Chorus]
Ooh
I cry
Ooh (Cry)

[Bridge]
For the truth that’s unspoken
For the promises broken
I will stand by your side
I’ll fight
For the ones who stopped dreaming
And the ones who stopped believing
You’re not alone
I feel your pain

[Chorus]
I cry
For the sons without fathers
And the pain that their mothers
Hold deep inside, hey
I’ll fight
For the future we’re making
Only changes if we face it
It’s love over pride
I’ll cry

[Outro]
Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I’ll cry
