MOSE ALLISON lyrics - Yardbird Suite

MOSE ALLISON
"Yardbird Suite"

It's hard to learn
How tears can burn one's heart
But that's a thing that I found out
Too late I guess, 'Cause I'm in a mess

My faith has gone
Why lead me on this way?
I thought there'd be no price on love
But I had to pay.

If I could perform one miracle
I'd revive your thoughts of me
Yet I know that it's hopeless
You could never really care.
That's why I despair!

I'll go along hoping
Someday you'll learn
The flame in my heart, Dear,
Forever will burn!
