Nobody's Crying Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

He jumps in the taxi, for the sky
He's off to slay some demon dragonfly
And he looked at me, that long last time
Turns away again and I waved goodbye

In an envelope, inside his coat
Is a chain I wore, around my throat
Along with, a note I wrote
Said, "I love you but I don't even know why"

Darling, I wish you well
On your way to the wishing well
Swinging off of those gates of hell
But I can tell how hard you're trying
Just have this secret hope
Sometimes all we do is cope
Somewhere on the steepest slope
There's an endless rope and nobody's crying

Well a long night turns into a couple long years
And me walkin' around, around this trail of tears
Where the very loud voices of my own fears
Is ringin' and ringin' in my ears

It says that love is long gone
Every move I make is all wrong
Says you never gave a damn for me
For anything, for anyone

But darling, I wish you well
On your way to the wishing well
Swinging off of those gates of hell
But I can tell how hard you're trying
Just have this secret hope
Sometimes all we do is cope
Somewhere on the steepest slope
There'll be an endless rope and nobody's crying

May you dream you are dreaming, in a warm soft bed
And may the voices inside you that fill you with dread
Make the sounds of thousands of angels instead
Tonight where you might be laying your head

I wish you well
On your way to the wishing well
Swinging off of those gates of hell
But I can tell how hard you're trying
You still have this secret hope
Sometimes all I do is cope
Somewhere on the steepest slope
There'll be an endless rope and nobody's crying
Nobody's crying, nobody's crying
