WaltC Posted March 28, 2006 Report Share Posted March 28, 2006 I just listenend to a recent release by Diamond Rio called God Only Cries It relates how our loved one's are now free from pain and it's those of us still living that need the tears. Here's an attempt at the lyrics:God Only Cries - Diamond RioOn an icy road one night,A young man loses his life.They marked the shoulder with a cross.And his family gathers round,On a piece of Hallowed ground.Their hearts are heavy with their loss.As the tears fall from their eyesThere's one who'll always sympathize God only cries for the living.'Cause it's the living that are left to carry on.And all the angels up in Heaven,They're not grieving because they're gone.There's a smile on their faces'Cause they're in a better place thereMmm, baby, they know, ohGod only cries for the living'Cause it's the living that are so far from homeIt still makes me sadWhen I think of my Granddad.I miss him each and every day.But I know the time will comeWhen my own grandsonWonders why I went away.Maybe we're not meant to understand'Til we meet up in the Promised Land. God only cries for the living.'Cause it's the living that are left to carry on.And all the angels up in HeavenThey're not grieving because they're gone.There's a smile on their faces'Cause they're in a better place thereOh, baby, they know, ohGod only cries for the living'Cause it's the living that are so far from homeYeah, we're so far from homeMmmmm, mmmm I can't find a good link to the music yet, but I find the words to be comforting.
