NOBODY CRYING
Patty Griffin


Well he jumps in the taxi, headed for the sky

He's off to slay some demon dragonfly

And he looked at me, that long last time

Turned away again and I waved goodbye

In an envelope, inside his coat

Is a chain I wore, around my throat

Along with, a note I wrote

Said "I love you but, I don't even know why"


But darling, 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

Just have that secret hope

sometimes all we do is cope

Somewhere on the steepest slope

There'll be an endless rope

and nobody crying.


Well a long night turns into a couple long years

Of me walkin' around, around this trail of tears

Where the very loud voices of my own fears

Is ringin' and ringin' in my ears

It says that love is long gone

Every move I make is all wrong

Says you never gave a damn for me

For anything, for anyone


But darling, 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,

Just have that secret hope

Sometimes all we do is cope

Somewhere on the steepest slope there'll be an endless rope

And nobody crying.


May you dream you are dreaming, in a warm soft bed

And may the voices inside you that fill you with dread

Make the sound of thousands of angels instead

Tonight where you might be laying your head


But darling, 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

Just have that secret hope

Sometimes all we do is cope

Somewhere on the steepest slope there'll be an endless rope

And nobody crying.

And nobody crying,

Nobody crying
