Cross to Bear Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

You ran away with your conscience clear
There was a, a red flag waving in my ear saying
"Stay away, you've got something to fear"
Well why did I not choose to hear?

Well I am through with suffering
Gonna make better choices I don't need no wedding ring
I can sing, I can dance but I can't make this feeling cease
'Cause deep in my soul you left a permanent crease

And we all got our cross to bear
And our Star of David, our dread locked hair
And oh yeah baby, I still care
And if you need some help you know I'll always be there

Well it's been a, a strange year, you've been a very bad dog
As my fire went out, you'd put on another log
But it was worth never having any peace
And deep in my soul you left a permanent crease

And we all got our cross to bear
And our Star of David, our dread locked hair
And oh yeah baby, I still care
And if you need some help you know that I'll still be there

Some nights I thought I'd cry forever
I'd wish him away and then I'd turn into a beggar
But it was worth always scraping my knees
And deep in my soul you left a permanent crease
You' were there

You know I, I wear my heart like a wrinkle on my sleeve
And I've got this aching love that only you can relieve
But I'm, I'm not afraid to go down with a sinking friend
Gonna live at my dreams even if they kill me in the end

And we all got our cross to bear
And our Star of David, our dread locked hair
And oh yeah baby, I still care and I still love you
