The Cries Of

BandFolkRock

The music about everyday life, my journey, joys, and struggles. As a solo act performance is chill, but with a lot of personality. A little like Dylan. With a full band, it becomes orchestral piece which brings a whole new experience to the music.

Biography

Panama City's Patrick Douglas makes music under the name The Cries Of... and in early 2007 saw the release of his debut album, Just Another Nobody. With the albums hypnotically melodic sound, Douglas invites these songs to bring peace and rest to those who lend a listening ear.

As a native to north Florida, Douglas grew up listening to artists like, Pink Floyd, The Doors and Led Zeppelin. Although he always found classic rock both intriguing and comforting, he really didn't begin exploring these roots until mid 2006. Douglas began blending these child hood roots with his love for ambiance to form the uniquely peaceful sound. A sound that he considers incomplete.

Lyrics

Threw These Eyes

Written By: The Cries Of

I am sitting in the park and I look at the leaves on the ground, I can hear you.
As I look to the sky at the birds flying high, I can hear you.
As I look to the trees I feel a cense of your peace over me.
As I play my guitar I know I don’t have to go very far to find you.
To be with you by your side, to be with you is all I want, is to be with you.
When I look at the word and the trouble we’re in with you, I know there’s nothing that we can do. When I look at the people and there busy lives, I know that without you I can’t survive. You instilled a fire inside of me on the first day that we met.
Then came down the rain and washed it all away, but that’s ok.
Because, when I play my guitar I know that I don’t have to go very far to find you.
To be with you by your side, to be with you is all I want, is to be with you.

Mirror Man

Written By: The Cries Of

I looked in the mirror and there’s a man looking at men. And we agree I don’t know him and he don’t know me. As time passes by, its one step closer to the day we die. So put away your fears and grab a hold of the last of your years. Why do we disagree? When it comes to the future going to have to wait and see. The day is here, tomorrow might come. What maters the most is that we learn to love. Somewhere some one is dying alone and afraid. So give them a hand man and show them the way, show them the way. Each day as we fade away its nothing lese than a miracle. Why do we waits our lives simply trying to survive? You know I hate to say, but we’re all going to die one day. We’ve got to turn ourselves around and pick back up all of our crowns. . The day is here, tomorrow might come. What maters the most is that we learn to love. Somewhere some one is dying alone and afraid. So give them a hand man and show them the way. . The day is here, tomorrow might come. What maters the most is that we learn to love. Somewhere some one is dying alone and afraid. So give them a hand man and show them the way, show them the way.


Ray’s from the Sun

Written By: The Cries Of

I’m walking down the road and I see the wall before my eyes. I hear you and I see you. You’re dancing in the rain. You’re dancing in your pain and I cry for you. I just want to hold you. Meet me there for you, for you till death. To hear you and what you have to say. The wall is coming down and you can now see. You see me with my arms wide open for you. Just come to me. And the sun shines so bright it washed away the rain. It took away the pain to never come back again. If you’ll walk with me then you’ll see His love. To understand and know Him is to be set free. And now that it’s just you and me, we can take on the world together.
One day, one day we will stand under the sky with colors you have never seen that will cause you to cry. We will hold each other close as the wind blows threw your hair, not having a single care. It will be only us in the sky. It will be a place that we will never die. You will paint all the things that you see and you will have all of me. You will dance because of the love that will never fade away, one day.

Sands Of Time

Written By: The Cries Of

Across the open sands of time I try to unwind and hear the whisper of your words.
Gassing into my thoughts at picture that I forgot, as a candle light gleams in the distance of a memory. Then I seen your smile and it let me know it’s going to be alright, just don’t let go of me tonight. When I look into your eyes, I see the truth beyond the lies.
Beyond the pain that I cause myself I can see your true love.
And even though I walk away, your there to turn me around.
I just want to say I am thankful for everything that you do.
The sorrow of another day creeps up beneath the sadness of hearing my past unveil before my eyes one more time. The cloud of suggestions covering me from every point of view. The only thing I can think of is you. Each day bleeds together as the sands of time trickle threw my finger tips, beyond the frail breath of eternity. It’s me, it’s me I see. Just trying to make it another day, to make the pain go away. Then I seen your smile and it let me know it’s going to be alright, just don’t let go of me tonight.
When I look into your eyes, I see the truth beyond the lies.
Beyond the pain that I cause myself I can see your true love.
And even though I walk away, your there to turn me around.
I just want to say I am thankful for everything that you do.
