    Re: All cried out

    Without fuller context - I would interpret this as a woman whose boyfriend/lover has reject her; she has been crying in distress. You come to a point when it is no longer possible physically to cry any more. She is all cried out.

    Re: All cried out

    Thanks Anglika.

    In fact, that's from a lyric
    I gave you my love in vain
    Now Im all cried out, over you.
    Cryin over you, yeah


    At first, I guessed the meaning as what you mentioned, but the title of the song is 'All Cried Out', not 'I'm All Cried Out', thus I thought there might be another special meaning of 'all cried out'.


    Can I change "now I'm all cried out, over you" to be "now i am all cried out because of you"?

    It comes to the same thing in the end! Yes, you could phrase it that way.
