"You See Me Crying" is a song by American hard rock band Aerosmith. It was released in 1975 as the last track on the band's breakthrough album "Toys in the Attic". It was released as the third single from the album in November 1975, but failed to chart.


The song is a complex piano ballad and was heavily orchestrated. Aerosmith and producer Jack Douglas brought in a string orchestra for the song, which was conducted by Mike Mainieri. The song itself was written by lead singer Steven Tyler and outside collaborator Don Solomon. Some of the band members became frustrated with the song, which took a long time to complete, due to the many complex drum and guitar parts.

The band's label, Columbia Records, was nonetheless very impressed with the song and the recording process. Bruce Lundvall, then-president of Columbia Records walked in on the recording sessions for "Toys" when the band was working on the song and remarked: "You guys got an incredible thing going here. I just came from a Herbie Hancock session and this is much more fun." [Douglas, S. and Aerosmith: "Walk This Way", page 234. Avon, 1997]

Brad Whitford did the guitar solos on this track instead of Joe Perry
