Duffy - River in the Sky lyrics

[Verse 1]
When I am alone, 'fraid of the dark
She sings in the night
Holds me close to her heart
My only friend who can comprehend
Why she visits me, time and again

[Chorus]
Like a river in the sky
Why, oh, why do we cry? Do we cry?
Just like a river in the sky
Why, oh, why do we cry? Do we cry?

[Verse 2]
As I walk this life, doubt on my mind
I pray to fly burden-free
She covers me so patiently
As I learn to deal with the pain

[Chorus]
Like a river in the sky
Why, oh, why do we cry? Do we cry?
Just like a river in the sky
Why, oh, why do we cry? Do we cry?

[Verse 3]
If I let myself go back in time
I see the sadness in her eyes
She knew the tears would always come and go
Like a river in the, like a river in the sky

[Chorus]
Like a river in the sky
Why, oh, why do we cry? Do we cry?
Just like a river in the sky
Why, oh, why do we cry? Do we cry?
Do we cry?
