Lyrics

Sometimes She Cries (Dirge for an Angel)
© Erick Duran Manard, 2021

VERSE 1—
Felled in the darkness
Trusted friend, you’re there
Near as my shadow
Pour your heart to share
Descend my angel
This life bound your care and best years for me

CHORUS 1—
Sometimes she cries
She laughs along the way
My lullaby, her eyes sleep
Precious where she lay

VERSE BRIDGE

VERSE 2—
Plow fields of sorrow
Feel your calm caress
Leaves wilt ‘neath winter
Hope soon yields redress
Words fail expression
But your soul impresses heaven on me

CHORUS 2—
Sometimes she cries
She slows her weep to pray
My lullaby, her sighs rest
Silent falls the day

GUITAR SOLO

BRIDGE
Sometimes she cries (2x)

CHORUS 3—
Sometimes she cries
She laughs along the way
Sometimes she cries
She slows her weep to pray

CHORUS 4—
Sometimes she cried
Flicker prepares to fade
My lullaby, she dies blest
Whisper where she laid
No more tears to pay
Her memory shall stay…

REPRISE—
Ascend my angel
I will meet you again…someday
