St. Vincent – Every Tear Disappears lyrics

Oh a smile is more than showing teeth
Oh it's not the potion it's the magic that I seek

Every tear disappears
Every tear disappears

Oh, the more that I struggle the deeper in the pit
If I can show a hand then I can show a fist

Call the twenty-first century, tell her give us a break

Every tear disappears
Every tear disappears
Oh and what about the pain?
Don't ask me how I just know that it fades
Every tear disappeared
Every eye is a seer

Yeah I live on wire
Yeah I been born twice
