Nobody’s Crying

Nobody’s Crying November 7, 2006

Who writes a song like Patty Griffin?


Here are some lyrics from her song Nobody’s Crying, which, ironically, always make me cry:

May you dream you are dreaming, in a warm soft bed
May the voices inside you that fill you with dread
Sound like 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
Though sometimes all I do is cope
That somewhere on the steepest slope
there’s an endless rope
And nobody’s crying.
"I really, really, really liked this article. Thank you. ♥"
