Alter Bridge – Cradle To The Grave lyrics

[Verse 1]
Mother, tell me
I long to hear the stories
Just like long ago
All these memories
Start to fade before me
I cannot let them go
No, I can't let them go

[Chorus]
From the cradle to the grave
It's a fear I can't escape
Who will be my hiding place when you're gone, oh
Oh, oh

[Verse 2]
Father, stay here
Don't leave me like the other
No, I need you so
All you gave me
Father, how you loved me
Treated like your own
Don't ever let me go

[Chorus]
From the cradle to the grave
It's a fear I can't escape
Who will be my hiding place when you're gone

[Bridge]
There's no way to deny the brevity of life

[Guitar Solo]

As time keeps marching on, all we have is lost

[Guitar Solo]

As time keeps marching on, all we have is lost
Nothing lasts forever, nothing stays the same

[Chorus]
From the cradle to the grave
It's a fear I can't escape
Who will be my hiding place when you're gone

From the cradle to the grave
It's a fear I can't escape
Who will be my hiding place when you're gone

[Outro]
How am I to carry on
How am I to carry on
(As time keeps marching on)
How am I to carry on?
(All we have is lost)
Nothing lasts forever, nothing ever stays the same
