Even Angels Cry
Jars of Clay
Lyrics
I whisper, “You don’t have to worry, we’ll survive”
Forced smiles underneath the brittle, frozen light
No proof that you’re alive
Cold fingers find the curve below your tired eyes
No comfort in familiar places, not this time
You hold it deep inside
Oh sister, if you wake up in the night
Walls are falling, letting in the light
No need to worry
Baby, even angels cry
No flood warnings, still the waters rise
Flowers through asphalt, Diamonds in the pockets of your eyes
Turn your face and hide
I saw a woman with ribbons in her hair
Old and lonely, so beautiful I had to stop and stare
The well will not run dry
Oh sister
