CHRISTINA
Patty Griffin


If you had the real thing how would you tell

Liars can say it all just as well

Every single word you've heard in vain

Baubles of gold, stars in your hair

Reflections that told that they were not there

And the diamonds on your cheeks have turned to flames

And up in the air they would write your name there

But love would fall to pieces in the rain

Who would know better than you

A hundred love letters and none of them true


Christina, Christina


It's a wondrous world of ridiculous things

With nothing so rare as the love that it brings

In the silence of a smile that understands

A piece of the action, pieces of gold

Everyone's paid well and does what they're told

For the simple daughter of a simple man

And up in the air they would write your name there

Their love will fall to pieces in the rain

Who would know better than you

A hundred love letters and none of them true


Christina, Christina

Christina, Christina
