Vonda Shepard - Cross To Bear lyrics

You ran away with your conscience dear
There was a red flag waving in my ear saying
"Stay away, you've got something to fear"
Well why did I not choose to hear?
Well I am through with suffering
Gonna make better choices I don't need no wedding ring
I can sing, I can dance
But I can't make thus feeling cease
Cause deep in my soul you left a permanent crease and

We all got our cross to bear
Our Star of David, our dreadlocked hair
And oh yeah baby, I still care
And if you need some help
You know I'll always be there

Well it's been a strange year
You've been a very bad dog
As my fire went out
You'd put on another log
But it was worth never having any peace
And deep in my soul you left a permanent crease and

We all got our cross to bear
Our Star of David, our dreadlocked hair
And oh yeah baby, I still care
And if you need some help
You know I'll always be there

Some nights I thought I'd cry forever
I'd wish him away and then I'd turn into a beggar
But it was worth always scraping my knees
And deep in my soul you left a permanent crease

I wear my heart like a wrinkle on my sleeve

And I've got the aching love that only you can relieve
But I'm not afraid to go down with a sinking friend
I'm gonna live out my dreams even if they kill me in the end

We all got our cross to bear
Our Star of David, our dreadlocked hair
And oh yeah baby, I still care
And if you need some help
You know I'll always be there.
