Bettye Lavette – Where A Life Goes lyrics

What's it like
Who you are?
Are you young and beautiful again?
Is it sadness that filled up your life?
Find the liquor and wash it away

Did you ever think about us?
Back here in this world of tears and dust
Go one I'll keep your secret if you must
Where a life goes?

What's it like when you wake up?
Do you even sleep?
Do you wonder where you are?
Do you feel the yellow sun?
Are you walkin' on streets of cold?
Are you laughin' like a child?
And the million tears you cry
You are long and finally satisfied
Where a life goes?

I think of all the things that I miss
The richest and the cloudless blue
I know just how you live your life
And you deserve so much more
Than you ever knew

Are you flowing round somewhere there?
I reach your care
With all the love that you can bare
Where a life goes?

In this lonely world we're lost
On an angry seed we're tossed
But you my dear
You made it safe across
Where, where
Where, where
Where a life goes?
