The Ian Black Band – Why Do Doves Cry? lyrics

[VERSE 1]
Sometimes in the dark of night
She cries herself to sleep
For there is the only place
To escape her endless screams

[VERSE 2]
And it's a matter of time
A brief lapse of reason
To open ourselves to the truth
And close our eyes to the pain
All she wants to know
Is why

[CHORUS]
Why do doves cry?
Nobody knows
How can one survive
When you're all alone
Why you look surprised
At what I say
Why do doves cry?

[BRIDGE 1]
Taken for granted
Taken for a ride
Taken forever
Oh they've taken her pride
All she wants to know
Is why

[CHORUS]
Why do doves cry?
Nobody knows
How can one survive
When you're all alone
Why you look surprised
At what I say
Why do doves cry?

[BRIDGE 2]
So many people
So many lies
So many victims
So many cries
They all want to know

[CHORUS]
Why do doves cry?
Nobody knows
How can one survive
When you're all alone
Why you look surprised
At what I say
Why do doves cry?
