    "As Tears Roll By" Lyrics

    Daniel Lanois

    I've been working downtown inside my troubles
    I've been working downtown inside my troubles
    I've been sleeping under the bridge of highway 1
    And I don't know who my savior is, as tears roll by

    Oh dear heart, I know it's been a long time
    And the pendulum swings so wide
    I've been wrestling with the burning spear
    With the burning spear
    Don't want to be like this another year, as tears roll by

    I could never see your perfect rainbow

    Avalanche buried me deep in the snow
    Murky smoke stack made me fall
    Cold ambition written on my wall
    I got mixed up and fell down
    I got mixed up as years roll by

    I could be a patriot if I could see
    But the TV talkin' man, make no sense to me
    And I don't know where our savior lives
    And I don't know where my savior is
    Building up, building down, as tears roll by

    Gotta keep my spirit out of trouble
    Keep myself out of trouble
    But the hands of need are calling me
    I feel mortality
    Tumble down, tumble down, as years roll by

    They were building a building like forever
    Heads buried deep inside a fever
    The spirit cried out from the ground
    Sweet, sweet maternal sounds
    Tumble, tumble, tumble down to the ground
    As fears roll by

    As tears roll by, as tears roll by
    As tears roll by, as tears roll by
