Flo Rida - I Cry (Twilight Sparkle) by AdrianImpalaMata Flo Rida - I Cry (Twilight Sparkle) by AdrianImpalaMata
OK, this one has got to be one of my favorite songs from Flo Rida. I Cry, from the Floridian rapper/singer-songwriter's fourth album, Wild Ones, is one of those tracks, along with In My Mind (Part 2), that are what Andy Gill from The Independent calls them "galloping grooves." It's catchy and, like any Flo Rida song, it's suitable for the usual typical nightclub atmosphere. But this one... well, it's got mixed reviews. The rapper's lyrics and production from soFLY & Nius and the Futuristics were criticised. Even Digital Spy's Robert Copsey felt that I Cry would fit better as another collaboration with Sia Furler (Flo and Sia released their killer collabo, the title track, Wild Ones, on December 19, 2011). But, you know, as long as the fans are happy about this club track, so does the Rida.

And yet, there's another spoiler from the two-parter season 3 premiere The Crystal Empire... yeah, I couldn't resist using this one. Sorry if I ruined the entire "wait-for-the-episode-to-air-in-my-area" thing for ya.


Flo Rida: It wasn't easy getting to the top, born and raised in Carol City, Florida. I went with more than any man should have to, growing up in the projects. Now I'm back for the kids. This is the story of my struggle. What's yours?

Chorus/intro
I know, caught up in the middle;
I cry just a little, when I think of letting go...
Oh no, gave up on the riddle;
I cry just a little, when I think of letting go...

I know you wanna get behind the wheel, but only one rida;
eyes shut still got me swimming like a diver.
Can't let go, I got fans in Okinawa;
my heart to Japan quake losers and surviours.

Norway, no you didn't get my flowers;
no way to sound better but the killer was a coward.
Face just showers, the minute in a hour,
heard about the news all day, went sour...

Lil mama's got me feeling like a limit here,
put you in the box, just the president's cigarettes.
Give 'em my regards or regardless I get arrested;
ain't worried about the killers, just the young & restless.

Get mad 'cause the quarter million on my necklace;
DUI, never said I was driving reckless.
You & I or jealously was not oppressive;
oh no, I can't stop, I was destined.

Chorus
I know, caught up in the middle;
I cry just a little, when I think of letting go...
Oh no, gave up on the riddle;
I cry just a little, when I think of letting go, go, go, go...

I know, caught up in the middle;
I cry just a little, when I think of letting go...
Oh no, gave up on the riddle;
I cry just a little, when I think of letting go...

Champagne buckets still got two tears in it
and I put that on my tattoo of Jimi Hendrix.
Get depressed, let the outfit all in it,
'cause the press tell it all, get a meal ticket.

Clean, next get a call, just a lil visit;
sacrifice just to make a hit still vivid.
Rihanna kiss you on ya neck just kill critics;
Buggatti never when I'm rich, just God fearing.

Look at me steering, got the bossing staring,
got the good feeling;
Mr. Mike Caren, tell his Billie Jeans, I'm on another planet;
thank E-Class, Big Chuck or Lee Prince Perries.

Buy my momma chandeliers on my tears, dammit;
thirty years you had thought these emotions vanish.
Tryna live, tryna figure how my sister vanish;
no cheers, I know you wouldn't panic.

Chorus

(When I need a healing,
I just look up the the ceiling;
I see the sun coming down,
I know it's all better now.)

(When I need a healing,
I just look up the the ceiling;
I see the sun coming down,
I know it's all better now.)

When I need a healing,
I just look up the the ceiling;
I see the sun coming down,
I know it's all better now.

When I need a healing,
I just look up the the ceiling;
I see the sun coming down,
I know it's all better now.

I know, I know, I know, I know, I-I-I, I think of letting go, go, go, go...

Flo Rida sampled it and didn't "stole" the song. I'm not sure if the Bingo Players or the record label they signed to had cleared his usage.

tl;dr Sampled, not stolen.
