Lucinda Williams — Pyramid Of Tears lyrics

Pyramid of tears
Pyramid of tears
Pyramid of tears, I see you cry

Her dress don't hide her age
Not like mama said it would
And her smile fades away
Just like daddy said it could

No, things don't come so easy
Not when you turn twenty five
And to blow out the candles
Takes a pill of concentration

I can't look inside her eyes
I can't kiss her perfect lips
I can't whisper in her ears
And take her far away from this

Pyramid of tears
Pyramid of tears
Pyramid of tears, I see you cry

I can't hold her tight enough
Not to steal away the pain
I can't look into her eyes
And tell her everything's okay

No, she's not tired, she's just older
And she's lost the will to fly
I can't whisper in her ears
And tell her everything's alright

Pyramid of tears
Pyramid of tears
Pyramid of tears, I see you cry

Pyramid of tears
Pyramid of tears
Pyramid of tears, I see you cry
I see you cry
I see you cry
I see you cry
