MOSES
Patty Griffin


Diamonds, roses,I need Moses

To cross this sea of loneliness, part this red river of pain

I don't necessarily buy any key to the future or happiness

But I need a little place in the sun sometimes or I think I will die


Everywhere is somewhere And nowhere is near

Everybody got somebody with their wine and their beer

So I'm just this tragic figure in the corner over here

With an empty apartment and a best friend who is queer


Everytime I see him he smiles

And he tells me how well he's walking these miles

But he never ever asks a single thing about me

If I die, he'd hear about it eventually

Diamonds, roses, I need Moses

To cross this sea of loneliness, Part this red river of pain


Everywhere is somewhere And nowhere is near

Everybody got somebody with their wine and their beer

So I'm just this tragic figure in the corner over here

Go home to an empty apartment and call a best friend who is a queer


Diamonds, roses, I need Moses

to cross this sea of loneliness, Part this red river of pain

to cross this sea of loneliness, Part this red river of pain

to cross this sea of loneliness, Part this red river of pain
