Nobody's Crying (Patty Griffin)

Well he jumps in the taxi, headed for the sky
He's off to slay some demon dragonflies
And he looks at me, that long last time, then he
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"

(Chorus)
Darlin' 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
I 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. ..

Well a long night turns into a couple long years
And we walking around and around this trail of tears
Where the very loud voices of my own fears
Are ringin' and ringin in my ear
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

Chorus (repeat)

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

(THE BEST SONG EVER!!!!!!!) :)
