sister don’t cry lyrics – collective soul

overseas through the air
and touched your heart down with care
all the thoughts left behind
but soon will catch you in time

and if i could, you’d know that i wouldn’t
let salvation reign on you
so, won’t you push away
all this pain that you’ve been through and say

sister, don’t cry
sister, don’t cry no more
sister, don’t cry anymore
sister, don’t cry
sister, don’t cry no more
sister, don’t cry anymore

while the scenes shuffle ’round
let your world anchor down
and pull your heart from your sleeve
and first react, then believe

when you won’t always get the thunder
to warn you of storms ahead
so bury all this pain
and get on with your life again and say

sister, don’t cry
sister, don’t cry no more
sister, don’t cry anymore
sister, don’t cry
sister, don’t cry no more
sister, don’t cry anymore

you conquer some serenity
lay yourself in fields of poetry
close your eyes to all you see
lay your weary head here with me
oh let me

sister, don’t cry
sister, don’t cry no more
sister, don’t cry anymore
sister, don’t cry
sister, don’t cry no more
sister, don’t cry anymore
sister, don’t cry anymore
sister, don’t cry anymore
