  • Jesus, don't cry
    You can rely on me, honey
    You can combine anything you want

    I'll be around
    You were right about the stars
    Each one is a setting sun

    Tall buildings shake
    Voices escape singing sad sad songs
    Tuned to chords strung down your cheeks
    Bitter melodies turning your orbit around

    Don't cry
    You can rely on me, honey
    You can come by any time you want

    I'll be around
    You were right about the stars
    Each one is a setting sun

    Tall buildings shake
    Voices escape singing sad sad songs
    Tuned to chords strung down your cheeks
    Bitter melodies turning your orbit around

    Voices whine
    Skyscrapers are scraping together
    Your voice is smoking
    Last cigarettes are all you can get
    Turning your orbit around

    Our love
    Our love
    Our love is all we have

    Our love
    Our love is all of God's money
    Everyone is a burning sun

    Tall buildings shake
    Voices escape singing sad sad songs
    Tuned to chords strung down your cheeks
    Bitter melodies turning your orbit around

    Voices whine
    Skyscrapers are scraping together
    Your voice is smoking
    Last cigarettes are all you can get
    Turning your orbit around

    Last cigarettes are all you can get
    Turning your orbit around
    Last cigarettes are all you can get
    Turning your orbit around Writer/s: Jay Bennett, Jeff Tweedy
